Simply Dylan is a standout act of pure class. - No frills, no gimmicks, no pretence SIMPLY DYLAN is John O'Connell's personal exploration and celebration of the rich and diverse work of Bob Dylan. John, a rare talent who has had his name indelibly written into the tapestry of Liverpool's music scene, has collaborated with other highly reputable musicians from the city to form his Dylan Band.

It is their precise playing and high energy renditions of Dylan's work from the 1970s onwards which has gathered momentum and generated incredible interest. From a modest project recognising Dylan's 70th Birthday in 2011 Simply Dylan has gone from selling out the Cavern Club 6 times, to receiving fantastic reviews from the Spanish Press, to impressing Dylan fans from across the UK on their Tours with SJM Concerts. You won't be disappointed, you will be blown away!

No ordinary interpretation, this is a remarkable and exceptional project which promises to delight Dylan fans young and old and to ignite a new wave of passion for one of the world's most prodigious songwriters.

"I went to see Johnny O'Connell playing Simply Dylan at the Cavern Liverpool and it was
absolutely stunning. Johnny is one of the most talented musicians I have come across
and his Dylan set is effortlessly brilliant."

I have seen Simply Dylan a number of times and I will go anytime I get the chance. Iconic songs played magnificently by a singular talent in John O Connell aided and abetted by a tremendous band. Quite simply better than Dylan himself - do yourself a favour, go see Simply Dylan and have a most wonderful 2 1/2 hours in celebration of one of musics all time greats.
