Willie and Waylon- outlaw country!

Details

Five piece tribute band celebrating sixty years of Willie
Willie Nelson is without doubt one of the most recognisable figures in Country music. Together with his ‘family’ band Willie has scored mega hits, both singles and albums on both sides of the Atlantic. Not only has he dueted with many huge names in music, he has starred in many films.
North Yorkshire isn't the most likely place for a Texas-style country band, but the sound is impressive and authentic county.
Full Nelson recreates the might, phenomena and legend that is a Willie Nelson live show. Not only sound-alike but look-alike, this five piece live band pays homage playing hits and album tracks spanning Willie’s six decade career. With slick guitar riffs and of course, Willie’s unique playing and singing style, no country fan will be disappointed.
Hits like ‘On the Road again and ‘Always on my Mind’ - Classics like Whisky River and ‘City of New Orleans’ - Willie duets with Waylon Jennings and there are versions of Ray Charles and Merle Haggard collaborations too. You get the picture.
This Yorkshire based band ( from Foxholes, Ayton, Scarborough Pickering and York) is already making waves at the seaside, and the wealth of experience in the band is earning them theatre and festival bookings.
Gary Luntley, as Willie, is joined by Joe Dunn on bass, Ian James, as Waylon, Paul Thompson on drums, and John Dickinson on keyboard.
