The Traveling Wilburys Revue
The Traveling Wilburys Revue is an amazing tribute to the music of George Harrison, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, and Jeff Lynne – when they played together as the 1988 supergroup, Traveling Wilburys.
The original Traveling Wilburys never got to perform live the music created out of that brief moment at the invitation of George Harrison to ‘get together and write some songs’, but The Traveling Wilburys Revue’s live concerts have thrilled a multitude of audiences.
The Traveling Wilburys Revue, as a musically accurate recreation, sets high performance standards as it celebrates the enduring music of the original artists. Fans cheer for the hit songs from the three-album catalog, and no one can resist singing along to famous tunes such as “Handle With Care”, “End Of The Line”, “Last Night”, “Here Comes The Sun”, “Won’t Back Down”, “Pretty Woman”, “Like A Rolling Stone”, “Don’t Bring Me Down”, and other beloved songs.
Guitarist Tom Finch, in position as the George Harrison of the group, is a California native and Gulf Coast Music Hall of Fame inductee. He has toured throughout the United States, Europe, Japan, and Canada while playing with artists such as Big Brother & the Holding Co., Jefferson Starship, Joan Baez, and many others.
Mark Burgess recreates Tom Petty’s music and signature vocal stylings with talent and compassion. Having played guitar since the tender age of just 9 years old, Mark eventually attended The Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University as a jazz performance major. Employed by Warner Bros as a music engraver, he has toured Japan, and worked with greats such as Robert Fripp, Kevin Eubanks of the “Tonight Show”, Sally Struthers, Tom Scott, Don Rickles, and many more.
Chris Sanborn fills in the sounds of Roy Orbison. His voice is able to reach the enigmatic tones that Roy was known for due to the classical training he gained while studying voice in Vienna. Chris has also enjoyed performing with jazz vocal groups throughout Europe – as well as with the Austrian National Radio Choir.
Jeff Kaplan channels his inner Bob Dylan and originally hails from Asbury Park, New Jersey. He was a founding member of ZaSu Pitts Memorial Orchestra, scored a #1 hit on alternative radio as a guitarist in the 700 Club, and has performed in many bluegrass bands with his skills on a 5-string banjo.
Steve Love honors Jeff Lynne with his talent and his unique playing style. Steve’ musical experience includes performing on lead vocals and lead guitar for the prominent 60’s music tribute band, hailing from Northern California, known as Back Pages. He enjoys not only being part of the The Traveling Wilburys Revue, but also plays in Refugee, the Tom Petty tribute band. Formally a software designer for Dolby, his talents can get happily technical.
Drummer Chris Lockheed has been a studio musician for years and has honed his skills to perfection. He has performed tours with The New Riders of the Purple Sage, the Tubes, Van Morrison, Blue Cheer, and other groups. Chris is part of the Arizona Musicians Hall Of Fame with Goose Creek Symphony on Capitol Records.
