This no ordinary interpretation continues to delight Dylan fans young and old as thousands of people across the UK have been delighted by the Band’s performances. It is their precise playing and high energy renditions of Dylan’s work which has gathered momentum and generated incredible interest along with fantastic reviews.

Quotes about Simply Dylan:
‘The aim of the band is to play Bob Dylan’s back catalogue as well as possible without falling in the trap of doing a carbon copy of his recordings.…a show that every Bob Dylan fan should see!’ – Louder Than War
“John is a very talented singer songwriter who travelled with me on tour. He captivated audiences with his excellent voice and guitar playing…” Stephen Bishop
“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.” Peter Hooton, The Farm
“Simply Dylan … this guy is different, he’s not an impersonator, more an interpreter and an accomplished musician and singer to boot. “ John Baldwin, Desolation Row
“… Having seen a mixed bag of gigs from the man himself ranging from inspired to forgettable, you could quite easily make the case that John and his band do a far better job of honouring the richest back catalogue in popular music history. Definitely going to try and catch a full show.” Trust The Wizards
“A truly magnificent voice John….was an honour to hear you….”Guitar George Borowski ~ Electric 50 Manchester Academy 3
