"A CELEBRATION OF THE MUSIC OF RORY GALLAGHER"
Rory’s music reached a massive audience from Norway to Spain, from Japan to the USA, Covering all parts of the globe and producing some of the greatest rock/blues albums of the 60’s 70's and the 80's.
Sadly we lost Rory on 14th June 1995, to his devoted fans and followers this was the ultimate tragedy.
The BAND OF FRIENDS is not a tribute to Rory,
more a celebration of his life and music.
'Please be assured that this is no tribute band.
Think a rendition of a composer's former work performed by those who have a full right to both perform it and choose their musicians.
RG would approve. No Doubt'
Noel Buckley, (Get Ready to Rock UK)
'Having had the privilege of seeing Rory Gallagher live (as well as several tribute acts),
I can honestly say that this gig is the closest that anyone will ever come to his sound, style and sheer energy of delivery.
This wasn't a gig, it was a concert.
This certainly was a 'Celebration of the music of Rory Gallagher' and it's great to see they are doing a fantastic job of keeping the music of this great musician alive.'
Rob Dodgson, (Annular Media UK)

We would like to say thank you for all your support so far this year.
Its been pretty hectic from January up until now.
We started the year with a great show at Celtic Connections,Glasgow, And its been full steam ahead since then.
All the shows have been very enjoyable,mostly due to the enthusiasm you folk’s have shown.
One show that was outstanding was The Rory Gallagher festival,Ballyshannon.
Especially performing next to Wilko Johnson.(superb)
Now we are getting ready for the Festival season.
Really looking forward to Bospop (NL) with ZZ Top and Winterbach (D) with George Thorogood,to name but a few.
Our next recorded project is a Live CD,which should be released by the end of August.
Look forward to seeing you along the way.
