Roy Orbison Tribute Acts: Barry Steele

Barry Steele is without question the best Roy Orbison tribute act in the UK today and gets rave reviews everywhere he goes.

Re-live this golden era as Barry effortlessly transports you back in time to what was arguably one of Roy Orbison’s greatest ever performances.

Imagine it’s 30th September 1987 and Roy Orbision is at the Coconut Grove Nightclub in Los Angeles recording the incredible Black and White Night.

Barry has often been accused of miming and has to sing accapella to convince mesmerized audiences that it is indeed him singing and not a taped recording of the great man himself.

Barry has always been a huge Roy Orbison fan and goes to great lengths to perfect the look, the sound and the feel of his live performances. He has toured throughout the UK and New Zealand to critical acclaim and is equally at home in large theatres or in more intimate clubs, hotels and restaurants.

“True Identi-Kit Brilliance” – The Stage Newspaper

“You are amazing, I thought it was a record playing!”
Myrna Smith of The Sweet Inspirations

“I’ve read reviews, I’ve seen the clips, but I never thought for one minute that Barry would be as consistent as he was throughout all his songs on Wednesday night in Batley. His voice is amazing! We have all been brought up with Roy’s music and on the night I was gobsmacked. I’ve seen a lot of tribute acts but nobody has come anywhere close to Barry!”

“Can I just say on behalf of me and all my family ….WOW! ….and thank you for one of the best nights we have ever had. My dad is very hard to impress but he said it was the best night out he has ever had and that’s really saying something!”

“Just to say what a brilliant show it was at the Swan Theatre on the 10th November. The friends that we were with said what a brilliant voice you have Barry and we look forward to seeing you again. You really brought tears to our eyes when you sang Crying”

“Went to the show in Redditch last night, it was absolutely fabulous and although we’ve been to see a few tributes at the Palace Theatre in Redditch before, this was the very best”

“Saw him at Wimbledon theatre last night and thought he was brilliant and the back-up singers too.The band were out of this world, so professsional” – Pat Carter
