16:20 The Trembling Wilburys

The Trembling Wilburys are the UK's first and best tribute to rock supergroup the Traveling Wilburys, featuring a line-up of top vocalists and musicians who perfectly recreate the unique sound of the amazing band created in 1988 by George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne. In particular, Glen Knowler stars as an uncannily close George Harrison look & sound-alike, while Enfield-based Dave Collison perfectly captures Roy Orbison's incredible vocal range. As well as such Wilburys hits as "Handle With Care" and "End Of The Line", the band's repertoire also includes classic songs by The Beatles, solo Harrison, Orbison, Bob Dylan and Tom Petty, which all makes for an unforgettable tribute show of the highest musical quality.

Since forming just over two years ago, the band has played at some prestigious events including the recent Heritage Foundation Blue Plaque unveiling to George Harrison & John Lennon in Baker Street, where they were supported by Rick Wakeman and Rod Davis of the original Quarrymen. Another highlight last year was performing at an official tribute dinner to the late Robin Gibb, while the Wilburys are also regular performers at London Beatles Day events. The band are all looking forward to joining in the Centenary Celebrations at Grovelands Park, and entertaining everyone with some of rock's greatest-ever songs.


17:10 The Bizzarros
Something very different !

The Bizzarros at the Grovelands Centenary Festival  !

Six years ago a collective of 11 North London musicians decided to form a band that would bring back something they felt was missing from the live music scene, a band that brought back the sense of fun to live music, it’s a high energy maximum r&b set that puts a great big smile on the face and makes the feet move !!

The material is eclectic and electric, white trash soul, rock, blues, r’n’b and Ska, with such a diverse range of material available this is not a band that slots into one particular style or genre but effortlessly glides between a  bewildering range of material to leave their audiences breathless.

The band hate being called a ‘covers’ band as they re-arrange and in some cases totally deconstruct songs to present them in a new form.

The Bizzarros themselves have musical CVs which are pretty amazing in themselves, a World Champion Blues Harp Player who has played with everyone from Fleetwood Mac to Jools Holland, guys from bands like Talk Talk, Bad Manners, Jeff Beck Band and record company house session musicians, fronted by the prodigious talent that is Isaac Rose, a 24 year old singer with a huge voice and supported by Helen T who also belts them out.

The Bizzarros invite you to come see them for yourselves, where they will warm you up and get you on your feet, a good time is guaranteed !!

14:50 Dave Hammers Little Big Horn

American vibraphonist, trombonist and vocalist Dave Hammer started Little BigHorn in 2011.

He was looking to blend the punchy impact of a big band with the versatility of a Vegas nightclub’s house band. He kicked the idea around, gathered together some of London’s most versatile and talented musicians and vocalists and the result is Little BigHorn.

Featuring quality arrangements by the best in the business, the LBH sound is tight, fresh and exciting.

Our oeuvre  is a veritable feast of New York swing, West Coast cool and Brazilian bossa, It often features vocals as well.

15:30 Irish Mist  
16:25 The Hine Brothers Band

Virtuoso Blues Guitarist has a long association with Winchmore Hill and with Festival Director Mick McDonagh. Back in 1967 Mick a Student at Middlesex Poly (Now University) booked the bands for the students union.

At Studio 51 in Soho he found the astonishing Brett Marvin and The Thunderbolts and booked them immediately forming a 40 year friendship.

Graham Hine was the guitarist.

Mick helped produce their first album and they went on to tour with Eric Clapton before having a number 2 hit with ‘Seaside Shuffle in 1972, which they recorded as Terry Dactyl and the Dinosaurs.

The Keyboard player was Jona Lewie who made Palmers Green famous with ‘You’ll Always Find Me In The Kitchen At Parties’, recently revived in the IKEA commercial. Jona also had a big hit with ‘Stop The Cavalry’ Jona was replaced in the Brets by Palmers Green art teacher Taffy Davis, who sadly died in 2010.

Until recently Bret Marvin continued with most of the original line up making popular appearances at St Monicas Blues Club and they were scheduled to play this Celebration to be joined again by Jona Lewie but the ravages of age and time have taken their toll.

Graham Hine  still standing tall and his brother will carry the torch playing the Assetgrove Main Stage on Sunday, whilst Graham will play a solo set on the Woodman Pub Stage on Saturday.

Don’t miss this remarkable musician.


17:10 The Rhythm River Trio

The Royalty Ballroom which is being remembered in the park as part of the Celebrations was the home of Rockabilly so it is fitting that top London Rockabilly outfit The Rhythm River Trio will make two appearances over the weekend.

They perform on Saturday on the Woodman Pub Stage and on Sunday on the Assetgrove Main Stage.

Formed in London they play early country and rockabilly music, everything from Webb Pierce 'There Stands The Glass", a country ballad to Gene Simmons 'I Done Told You' , a wild Rockabilly song.

Their first gig was at the world famous Biker Cafe in London, The Ace Cafe.

Their shows will be a riot for young and old.
