Showbiz legends were in abundance at the Regents Park Marriott Hotel in Swiss Cottage on Saturday 16th November, when the Heritage Foundation paid special tribute to actor and comedian Bernard Cribbins OBE on achieving 70 years in the business. Best known for narrating The Wombles TV series; his appearances in three Carry On films; two hit records (‘Right Said Fred’ and ‘Hole In The Ground’) plus appearances in Doctor Who, Jackanory, Fawlty Towers, Wrong Arm Of The Law and many other TV programmes and feature films, Cribbins (84) was delighted to receive recognition from his peers at the Heritage Foundation’s annual Christmas Lunch. The glitzy event (complete with crackers, turkey & mince pies) concluded with a full set by the Trembling Wilburys, whose singers Glen Knowler (as George Harrison) and Dave Collison (as Roy Orbison) are seen flanking Cribbins. This turned out to be one of our best performances yet, and a great warm-up for our special Xmas party night at Dingwalls in Camden on December 3rd. Continue reading

The Trembling Wilburys returned to London Beatles Day on Sunday October 20th for the third time to play a short acoustic set, marking exactly 25 years of the original Traveling Wilburys, which was well received by a highly appreciative crowd. The event was also much busier than usual due to the presence of author Mark Lewisohn talking about his mammoth new Beatles biography “All These Years – Vol. 1: Tune In”, and signing copies all afternoon in an adjacent room – thereby sadly missing our fine set (!) which consisted of ‘She’s My Baby’, ‘Dirty World’, ‘If I Need Someone’, ‘Here Comes The Sun’, ‘You Got It’, ‘End of The Line’ and ‘Handle With Care’.

On Monday May 6th, an historic musical event took place at London’s St. James’ Theatre, when three members of John Lennon’s original Quarrymen (Rod Davis, Len Garry and John ‘Duff’ Lowe) were joined by two of the Trembling Wilburys, drummer Dave Stark and bassist Marko Laver, for a one-off gig which was rapturously received by a full house crowd. Dave and Marko were invited to step in as regular Quarrymen drummer Colin Hanton was recovering from a shoulder operation back home in Liverpool. The two-set gig included many skiffle and rock’n'roll classics such as ‘Rock Island Line’, ‘Twenty Flight Rock’ and ‘That’ll Be The Day’, along with Quarrymen/early Beatles originals ‘One After 909′ and ‘In Spite Of The Danger’, plus a sentimental version of Lennon’s classic ‘In My Life’.

On Monday, the 6th of May, an historic event will be taking place. John Lennon’s original band, the Quarrymen will be performing at St. James’ Theatre, London. Three members of the original Quarrymen will be joined by our own drummer, David Stark, and bass player, Marko Laver for a one off gig.
From the St. James’ website:
The Quarrymen perform the Skiffle and early Rock music, which influenced the birth of the Beatles, including songs like“Rock Island Line”, “Mean Woman Blues”, “Whole Lotta Shakin’”, “Blue Suede Shoes”, “Lost John”, and many more. As well as their music, the Quarrymen share their Liverpool sense of humour in the stories and anecdotes with which they pepper their performance, giving Beatles fans a unique insight into the origins of their favourite group and the city in which they grew up.
The current Quarrymen lineup includes three of those five original musicians, – Len Garry, former tea-chest bass player, now playing guitar and replacing Lennon as lead singer, – Rod Davis, from Quarry Bank School, on guitar and Colin Hanton on drums, who played with John, Paul, George and John Duff Lowe on the famous Percy Phillips recording session which produced “In Spite of All the Danger” and “That’ll Be the Day”.
