Shadow Play Rory is a genuine tribute band playing the music of the late, great Irish bluesman Rory Gallagher. The aim is to try to recapture the atmosphere and sound of Rory's great live gigs. Pete Gates explains: 'We have tried to recreate the mood and excitement of Rory's performances just the way it was, as much as possible, by getting the right sound using identical equipment and playing to original set lists'. The main focus of the band is to try and sound like Rory - not look alike, as you can see from the photo above. There is not a checked shirt in sight and wigs aren't an option!
Admission Free. Starts 8.45pm every Thursday.
