DYLANESQUE: Dylanesque was formed in May 2000. The band have played quite a few of the country's leading venues. Love of the actual performance has kept them from over exposure,in as much as the band do not play inadequate venues,such as public houses without a specific stage area or dressing room facilities. Simply put if a show is the requirement, then so are the facilities. Their alter ego, on the other hand,HIGHWAY 61 A hard hitting Rhythm & Blues outfit of some fifteen years standing can and do rock almost anywhere. Keeping to this 'best suit for Sundays' attitude has allowed Dylanesque to maintain a high standard of theatrical performance that has led to them 'topping the bill' at Liverpool's Beatle week' The Mathew Street Festival'2003! Where they played to a crowd of 6000 people. The day before this Michael teamed up with the excellent George Harrison tribute band Hari Georgeson for his contribution in a reenactment of the 1971 concert for Bangla Desh. Earlier in the year Dylanesque played the same bill as folk icon Carolyn Hester at the UK Bob Dylan 'John Green Day'Convention in Northampton. Carolyn's name is synonimous with Dylan's New York Greenwich Village grounding. Dylanesque have been succesfull. The following year they took part in a charitable BBC radio broadcast, where theyperformed live whilst the stars from Emerdale played on the Bishop Auckland Cricket ground. In 2006, once more at the UK Dylan Festival, Dylanesque shared the bill with Scarlet Rivera and Rob Stoner who performed as part of Joel Gilbert's US outfit Highway 61 revisited. This same year Dylanesque provided the soundtrack for the Chrome dreams/Isis commercially available DVD ' After the crash. Bob Dylan: 1966-78 Michael Crimmins, at the request of Freewheelin editor John Stokes, has submitted several articles for the mag, one of which was requested by none other than Bob's old adversary A.J.Weberman! Dylanesque enjoy their tribute to Bob Dylan in the knowledge that HE has written some of the greatest songs of all time! Thanks for reading.
