Band Of Friends

Band Of Friends UK dates in October

Band Of Friends – bassist Gerry McAvoy (Rory Gallagher/ Nine Below Zero/ Champion Jack Dupree/ Deep Joy), drummer Ted McKenna (Rory Gallagher/ Sensational Alex Harvey Band/ Greg Lake/ Gary Moore) and guitarist-vocalist Marcel Scherpenzeel (Wolfpin) – play UK dates this month.

McAvoy appeared on every Gallagher studio album until the bandleader’s passing in 1995. McKenna appeared on ‘Photo-Finish’, ‘Top Priority’ and ‘Stage Struck’ as a member of the group from 1977 until 1981.

The Band Of Friends were formed after McAvoy played with Scherpenzeel in 2010 and realised the Dutch artist was “the closest thing to Rory you’ll ever hear.”
