This past Friday evening, Stevie O’Connor was back at The Old School Bbq Bus in Oldham, Manchester and he brought the talented Tommy Taylor along with him.
First up was Tommy Taylor.
This is the first time I’ve seen him and I was not disappointed! Tommy has an incredibly powerful voice and I can see him going far. He sang a range of covers, putting his own style on them....absolutely brilliant.
Tommy holds events at his bar/restaurant called ‘Tommys’ in Filey, Yorkshire. He has a few lined ready for the year which you can find on his venues Facebook page.
Stevie was up next.
I’ve seen Stevie play at many venues over the last 16 months, but this was the first time I’ve seen him at the Bbq Bus where he is a regular guest.
Stevie knows how to put on a show and get the audience involved.
At one point, in the middle of his song ‘Waiting on a Willie’ (about Willie Nelson), he got some audience members up in front of the stage for a ‘dance off’.
Stevie sang a range of covers and his own songs, inviting Tommy Taylor back on stage to join him for a few and Megan Louise, who is an up and coming new artist on the country scene, to join him on the tambourine for a song. At the end of Stevie’s set, the audience were demanding more, so Stevie continued until the bell rang for last orders at the bar.
The Bbq Bus hosts weekly live music events, commonly featuring our UK country acts. It’s a great atmosphere and venue for a show and the food and drink available is fantastic.
