GEORGE HARRY'S SON - A George Harrison Themed Supergroup from Liverpool
On Wednesday 25th August at 9pm, there is to be a special live concert at The Pacific Bar and Grill in Liverpool featuring the talents of 'George Harry's Son'- a George Harrison themed Supergroup from Liverpool.
This 8 piece band (fronted by local Crosby musician Gavin Pring, who bears an uncanny likeness to George Harrison, in appearance, mannerism and vocals) started life last year to rave reviews. The band faithfully celebrates the life and works of George Harrison, covering his global and unforgettable hits such as 'Something', 'If I Needed Someone', and 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps'.
The band draw their set from two main sources- The 1991 'Rock Legends Tour' that George Harrison performed with Eric Clapton, and the fitting tribute Eric Clapton directed for George at the Albert Hall- 'Concert for George'. The latter saw the talents of stars such as Jeff Lynn, Tom Petty, Paul McCartney and Billy Preston (Beatles Keyboard player on 'Let it Be').
Be uplifted by the rapturous 'My Sweet Lord', then rock out to George's mighty Beatles classics 'Taxman', 'Roll Over Beethoven', and 'Old Brown Shoe'.
More than a tribute band, this 8 piece Supergroup contains the greatest musicians drawn from some of the most respected bands in the world.
Alongside the stunningly talented Gavin are musical heavyweights such as Richard Smith from Row Z (performing Eric Clapton's slide guitar and solo parts) and John Ellis from the Cinematic Orchestra and The Stone Roses John Squire (performing the rock and roll keys of Billy Preston). This band are highly individual, drawing their inspiration from their home city of Liverpool, and one of it's most famous sons.
The Pacific Bar and Grill welcome you on this evening of magic and fun. Why not soak up the atmosphere from 7pm and enjoy a delicious menu of Pacific Rim cuisine in the specially themed room for the evening? Deli specials start from just £4.95.
