#692: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Hull based ELO tribute band The ELO Experience - who are now an eight  piece unit with the addition of their new violinist - made their latest landing at Oakengates Theatre @ The Place in Telford last night [Thursday 3rd April]. ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] was there in the company of John Collins [from the Forever web site] to witness them as they continued their 2014 "Mr. Blue Sky" Tour.
|The 3LO Experience: Andy Louis, KJS and Steve Hemsley ...|
|Andy and Steve finally met up with their hero Jeff Lynne recently ...|
The ELO Experience are the reason that ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] supports the work of professional, accurate tribute bands and why I believe that they have a rightful place in keeping the national [and international] appetite for the live performance of ELO's music satisfied alongside artistes such as The Orchestra [former members of ELO & ELO Part II] and Phil Bates' excellent ELO themed projects. I look forward their return visit to Wolverhampton's Wulfrun Hall on Friday 4th July with much anticipation.
The ELO Experience were: Andy Louis [Lead vocals/rhythm guitar], Steve Hemsley [Keyboards/vocals], Pete Smith [Bass guitar/vocals], Jan Christiansen [Lead guitar/vocals], Tony Lawson [Drums], Viv Blackledge [Cello], Clare Little [Cello] and Emily Blackledge [Violin]
The ELO Experience continue to tour the UK extensively and you can view all their latest news and Tour Dates via their official web site thus:
