About

Simply Dylan is a tribute to Bob Dylan, not a Bob Dylan tribute band!

John O’Connell, formerly Groundpig, returns to The Atkinson with his Simply Dylan band.

Simply Dylan is as straightforward as the title suggests: no frills, no gimmicks and no pretence. Led by front man John O’Connell, the band delivers a tribute to Bob Dylan celebrating the rich and diverse work of the award-winning artist. It is the band’s interpretations, precise playing and high energy renditions of some of Dylan’s back catalogue that has caught the attention of many Bobcats and music lovers.

From what started as a modest project in 2011, recognizing Dylan’s 70th Birthday, the success of the band has been nothing short of remarkable from selling out the Cavern Club 6 times, to receiving fantastic reviews from audiences across the UK and Spain, to opening up the Isle of Wight Festival in 2019 on the Big Top Stage.

Ten years on, 2021 will see the band celebrate Bob Dylan’s 80th Birthday, touring the UK and once again honouring the back catalogue of one of the world’s most prodigious songwriters.

Reviews

“Together, they marry the extraordinary range and beauty of Dylan’s lyrics with the joyous and exuberant, celebratory sound I have always secretly wanted to hear whenever, in recent decades, I have listened to Bob Dylan.” – Alan Bleasdale, Playwright

“A show every Bob Dylan fan should see.” – Louder than War

“Johnny is one of the most talented musicians I have come across and his Dylan set is effortlessly brilliant.” – Peter Hooton, The Farm

“There’s no attempt to look or dress like Dylan or imitate his voice. Instead you get John’s excellent and powerful voice, enunciating the words clearly backed up by a brilliant bassist and violinist.” – Trust the Wizards

“Great songs performed by musicians at the top of their game.” – Hub Review
