The band continued through the 1970s, never capturing the Gram Parsons front man dynamic, until 1979 when singer/ songwriter & multi-instrumentalist Greg Harris was ‘discovered’ by stalwarts Kleinow, & then Burritos members (Byrds’) bassist Skip Battin & Gib Guilbeau. Greg’s performance of classic Parsons’ material was uncanny. This era of the band, mostly intact, continued into the 1990s.
Greg Harris, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and vocalist arrived in LA signed to RCA Records in 1977. He worked a short stint in the infamous Palomino Club house band. He did session work for everyone from The Everly Brothers, Alabama & Gene Parsons, joining The Flying Burrito Bros. in 1979 and recorded two projects, Live in Tokyo in 79’ and The Burrito Bros “Live In Europe” in 86’.
Jeff Pevar, sought after guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist - is possibly best known for his touring & recording work with sixties music icons, David Crosby, CSN, Phil Lesh & Friends, Joe Cocker, Ray Charles, Jazz is Dead & Jefferson Starship, with whom he played bass for the Woodstock 40th Anniversary Tour. He also supported Bette Midler, Rickie Lee Jones and many others.
Tony Morley, bassist - has amassed such a heady range of credits, it would be impossible to list all of them. Notably, he has toured/ recorded in the U.S., Japan, Germany, Italy, France, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Scandinavia with Jefferson Starship and Live Dead ‘69
Richard Newman,drummer/percussionist is one of Britain’s most in demand musicians. He recently completed a massive tour with Paul Rogers & Jeff Beck. He has also toured late greats Alvin Lee, Rory Gallagher, Jefferson Airplane’s Paul Kantner in Jefferson Starship, and he continues with Deb Bonham and Live Dead ’69.
A full band tribute that covers the full range of the duo's career together, as well as drawing extensively from Paul Simon's solo career. From the early harmonies of 'Wednesday Morning 3am' and 'Homeward Bound' to the later beauty of 'Bridge Over Troubled Water', this is live entertainment at its finest.
Paul and Art are played to perfection, bringing in elements of their famously fractious relationship, as well as replicating the beautiful harmonies flawlessly.

Stan Webb was at the heart of the British Blues Boom as he led his band Chicken Shack around the Blues club circuit in the late 60s. Londoner Stan played guitar in skiffle groups before forming his own band in 1965, playing a series of residencies in Hamburg, Germany over the next couple of years. When the band signed for the new Blue Horizon label in 1967, they were called Chicken Shack and consisted of Stan on guitar, Christine Perfect (later McVie) on piano, drummer Dave Bidwell, and bassist Andy Sylvester, who later played with Foghat.
In 1968, they released their album ’40 Blue Fingers, Freshly Packed and Ready to Serve’, and opened a big tour for labelmates Fleetwood Mac. Their most popular number was a version of ‘I’d Rather Go Blind’, the Etta James standard, sung by Christine Perfect. Stan himself had a true Blues sensibility, and an excellent guitar technique, closely modeled on Freddie King. Five years of constant touring and recording followed, and the pressures of this crazy lifestyle led to many changes in personnel, including Christine Perfect switching to Fleetwood Mac.
In 1974, Stan dissolved Chicken Shack and joined another British Blues band, Savoy Brown, but returned a year later with ‘Stan Webb’s Chicken Shack’. This band, with an ever changing roster of side-men, has continued to support Stan up to the present, playing regularly in the UK and touring Europe. After almost 50 years on the road, Stan still carries the torch for British Blues.

Lead & Rhythm Guitar, Backing Vocals Lead & Rhythm Guitar, Backing Vocals Drums & Percussion
Formed in Edinburgh way back in 1995, Black Rose have a long history of performing the music of Thin Lizzy and Philip Lynott. From the very start the aim was to re-create the feel of the Lizzy live set and bring the music to existing and new fans alike and the current line-up deliver this in style.
Black Rose have a long history of playing at special events; having already performed at The Vibe in Dublin twice, at the inaugural Scottish Vibe and most recently they headlined the opening night of the 2018 Bash for Philo in Dublin. This year alone Black rose have played to packed crowds in venues through the central belt such as The Dreadnought and The Voodoo Rooms.
True to the Lizzy way of life many band members have come and gone since the early days, however, Scotland’s Black Rose have always tried to stay true to the sound of Thin Lizzy, no parodies, just a passion for the music! Most of us are old enough now to remember when we saw them 'Live & Dangerous on many occasions and, from the opening chords of Jailbreak through the Celtic rock of Emerald, the slow blues of Still In Love With You to the final ringing notes of Black Rose, the band continue to pay tribute to the music of Philip Lynott and Thin Lizzy!
Close your eyes and think of LIZZY!! Are You Ready?!!!
Robert Ian McNabb was born in Liverpool on November 3rd 1960. An only child - the son of Patricia and Robert.
He first picked up a guitar at the age of 12 after seeing Marc Bolan on Top Of The Pops.
Ian joined his first band, Young World, at the age of 15 ; They played the working men’s club circuit for a couple of years before Ian joined another band City Lights. This band again gigged extensively around the North of England cabaret circuit, but Ian grew tired of playing other peoples songs and decided that cabaret was not the way forward for him.
He had always written songs for fun but now he began to take it seriously.
In 1981 Ian formed The Icicle Works with Chris Sharrock (drums), and Chris Layhe (bass and vocals).
They quickly gained a following through their debut single release, Nirvana, and extensive live performances up and down the country.
The Icicle Works became part of the Liverpool renaissance movement of the eighties, alongside acts such as Echo And The Bunnymen, The Teardrop Explodes, WAH!, Heat, OMD, Black, Dead Or Alive, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, The Lotus Eaters, and China Crisis.
They signed to Beggar’s Banquet records, and under the guidance of Martin Mills scored a top 20 hit with Love Is A Wonderful Colour in the U.K ; and top 40 placings in the U.S, Canada, and Europe with Birds Fly (Whisper To A Scream), with their eponymous debut album.
The Icicle Works achieved top 40 placings in the UK for all four of their albums - The Icicle Works, The Small Price Of A Bicycle, If You Want To Defeat Your Enemy Sing His Songs, and Blind - until they split up in 1988.
Muff Winwood signed Ian to Epic records in 1989, paying a buy-out fee to Beggar’s Banquet; but Muff’s insistence on using The Icicle Works name, (with new musicians Roy Corkill and Zak Starkey) when the original band had ceased to be, caused friction, and after one disappointingly received album, Permanent Damage, Ian was dropped from Epic’s roster.

Queues outside waiting to get in way before the official opening time, a packed house absolutely blown away by a great performance from this fantastic Blues Lady and her rocking band. Great music from great musicians. And are they coming back to the Pokey? You bet your life they are….!..”- Norman Hood (Pokey Hole Blues Club
