Saturday 9th July 2022

Simply Dylan is as straightforward as the title suggests: no frills, no gimmicks and no pretense. 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 their interpretations, precise playing and high energy renditions of some of Dylan's back catalogue that has caught the attention of many Bobcats.


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, to opening up the Isle of Wight Festival 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 one of the world’s most prodigious songwriters.

PRESS QUOTES:
“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.”
