The Trembling Wilburys ended 2013 with two great Christmas gigs, the first at the legendary Dingwalls in London’s Camden Lock, and the second at our pal Denis Cook’s new venue, the Flamingo on the Pond in Watford. The Dingwalls gig was also drummer Dave Stark’s SongLink 20th Anniversary party, and saw a great turnout of music industry friends and supporters, along with many new faces seeing the band in action for the first time.

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
OK folks here we go… all down to Dingwalls on Dec 3rd!
The Trembling Wilburys are the UK’s first & best tribute to rock supergroup the Traveling Wilburys, featuring a line-up of top vocalists and musicians who perfectly recreate the unique sounds & style of the amazing band created in 1988 by George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne. Band members include Glen Knowler, truly uncanny as George Harrison, while Dave Collison perfectly captures Roy Orbison‘s incredible vocal range and look.
The Xmas show will feature a full Wilburys set including all the classics (Handle With Care, End of the Line, She’s My Baby plus Beatles & solo George etc), along with a special tribute set to the late, great “Big O”, Roy Orbison who left the bandstand exactly 25 years ago on December 6th, 1988. Plus special guest tbc.
Doors 19.30, showtime 20.15
It’s Christmas time again, folks. And we’re re-visiting our spiritual home, the Castle Rocks! Come down and join us to ring in Christmas and the New Year at Denis’s place. We’ll be doing all your favourite Orbison, Harrison and Wilburys tunes.
In the words of the Castle Rocks’ main man, Denis Cook,
“I’m looking at this being my “Last Hurrah” Live music session at The Castle with some of my most staunch supporters in David Stark, Dave Collison, Joe Shaw, Dzal Martin and all the guys in
the bands plus my Hillbilly mates Shane Lamont, Vaughan Rance & Dave Williams. We have another great live music night on 29th but this Sunday afternoon scene has been “more me” and I hope as many of you as possible can join me.”
