The Unravelling Wilburys are Thumper, Blind Melon, Sticky Willy, Walter and Rev. Honky Tonk. In a former guise as top Beatles project, Sgt Pepper’s Only Dart Board Band, (The Flab Five), they toured for over 20 years playing at UK and USA festivals, and at theatres and music venues across Europe and the UK.
Their latest tongue-in-cheek shows feature the boys take on their songs being (allegedly) usurped by The Traveling Wilburys back in the late 1980s at Nashville, Tennessee. The Unravelling Wilburys now “steal back what is rightfully theirs” and also ‘borrow’ some choice solo songs from Messrs Dylan, Lynne, Orbison, Harrison and Petty.
Showcasing their amazing musical talents, the set list features Wilbury songs such as End of The Line, Handle With Care, The Devil’s Been Busy, Tweeter And The Monkey Man, She’s My Baby, and Heading For The Light, together with classics such as Pretty Woman (Roy Orbison), Mr Blue Sky (Jeff Lynne), Refugee (Tom Petty), Mr Tambourine Man (Bob Dylan) and While My Guitar Gently Weeps (George Harrison). With all these great songs and plenty of humour throughout, this is a show not to be missed!
” Captured the style and sounds perfectly and with their own added sense of humour gave the audience an evening to remember”
