Limehouse Lizzy play top set
If an evening dedicated to the fantastic, memorable band Thin Lizzy is your thing, you cannot miss a special gig at the Mill Theatre, Banbury next week.
Limehouse Lizzy is a tribute band paying remarkable attention to detail in its appreciation of the amazing Irish rock band, formed in the late 1960s by founding members including legendary bass guitarist and vocalist Phil Lynott and his schoolmate, drummer Brian Downey.
In this brilliant tribute, singer Wayne Ellis, described by a critic from The Guardian as ‘a dead ringer for Phil Lynott’, takes the audience on a Thin Lizzy journey that will convince them they have witnessed the real thing.
Ellis is no mimic, no impressionist. Like Lynott, he has a natural charisma and style that his hero displayed.
One critic summed it up in a review when he said ‘All the time there is Wayne Ellis, the memory of Thin Lizzy will be kept very much alive and well’.
Limehouse Lizzy are now in their 18th year. They deliver a tremendous, two-hour blast of the cream of the music and hits in Lynott’s and Thin Lizzy’s back catalogue.
They promise great attention to detail, engender charismatic audience interaction and deliver that all-important X-factor feeling of being part of a performance that has been described as ‘beyond tribute’.
The accolades they have received are a tribute to the time, love and determination that Wayne Ellis and his fellow musicians have put into the band.
As always they will provide an impressive, action packed, pyrotechnic-fuelled, explosion of a show which will include hits such as Whiskey in the Jar, Jailbreak and The Boys are Back in Town.
The gig takes place next Friday, February 22, at 8.30pm. For tickets, priced £15, call the box office on 01295 279002.
