Band Info

Barry Steele was born in Selly Oak in the West Midlands, UK. and it was on a family holiday in 2002 that Barry took the first steps on the road to becoming a professional singer, when his wife and daughter entered him in a singing competition, It was during that competition that a fellow competition said to him, "You know you sound just like Roy Orbison singing Robbie Williams!" So with the help of his wife, family, many friends and colleagues, a tribute to "The Dark Star" was born.
Barry quickly became totally enveloped in the music and the sheer magic that was Roy Orbison, his aim was simple his vision was clear; to deliver Roy Orbison songs to Roy Orbison fans and in same manner as they were originally performed.

Barry has toured the UK, New Zealand, and Denmark in his own shows, he also spent two years performing as Roy to rave reviews in the touring show "Rockin on Heavens Door" where he toured Holland, Belgium, Austria and Germany before leaving in March 2009 to take to the road in his own theatre show, "Roy Orbison and Friends"

Barry is currently touring with his five piece band "The Black and White Knights" as he presents an upbeat and contemporary tribute to the Big O & the Traveling Wilburys. With quality support acts, which include The Beatles, The Everly Brothers, and Billy Fury tributes, his show is quickly gaining a reputation as a professional and authentic tribute to Mr Orbison.

As Barry has always said "Roy Orbison was the greatest singer the world has ever known, I have to do him justice"
