Sinnerboy (UK)

Sinnerboy - from Manchester - have a huge reputation for faithfully recapturing the sound and excitement of a live "Rory Gig". They have played a major role in promoting the revival of Rory's music in the last few years and apart from gigging extensively in Europe, they headlined Rory Gallagher tribute events in Ireland, England, Holland, Germany, Greece, Spain, Norway and the USA.

Sinnerboy will bring out the very best of Rory Gallagher's music with a repertoire that covers every era of the late Rory's career. After 2017 and 2018, Barry Barnes, Dave Burns and John D Clayton will rock the Rory Gallagher Tribute Festival Vienna for the third time. Hard years on the road gave these three guys a telepathic understanding of what each other is doing, and on this great night sparks will fly!

"This is the proof that my brother’s music lives on" (Donal Gallagher).



Aiden Pryor Band (UK)

Led by lead guitarist, singer and songwriter Aiden Pryor, the three piece band play with passion and showmanship. The band are from middle England and Aiden’s a young guy who grew up with live music around him and crafted his playing listening to Rory Gallagher, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Albert Collins and the more contemporary Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Philip Sayce. Aiden pays homage to his hero, Rory Gallagher, and gets invited to play at Rory Festivals around Europe, not for replicating the playing but capturing the energy and wall melting atmosphere at the venues they play. Their audiences are drawn in by Aiden’s own songs written with an authentic yet refreshing style - a kind of blues rock with attitude. Aiden puts his heart into every note and takes his audience on a journey.

The other members of the band are drummer Jamie Layton who plays by feel and hears the drumming detail in every song, bass shared by Luke Palmer ex Selector bass player and natural musician and Stuart Dixon, Aiden’s great mate who although a fine guitarist himself regularly stands in in the APB rhythm section.



Cork (TR)

CORK is a band from Istanbul, Turkey, adoring the music of Ballyshannon born and Cork grown G-Man Rory Gallagher, and intending to keep his music alive.

They intend to interpret the music of Rory Gallagher in their own style and meet it with the Turkish rock and blues audience where the G-Man is not so well known as he is in other countries. The band also aim to reach the international audience, playing at Rory Gallagher International Festivals & Tributes.

CORK play regularly in Turkey and mainly in Istanbul, in their hometown at reputable rock and blues venues. They have played at the Rory Gallagher International Festivals & Tributes in Ireland, Germany, England, Holland and also at individual gigs in Ireland so far. In 2015, they made their international debut at Rory Gallagher International Festival in Ballyshannon, Ireland. This year they will be on stage in Vienna for the first time.

CORK was founded in 2011 by the guitar player Ali Ataman and drummer Murat Kayhan. The line up changed twice till the final one which includes Baris Yaman on vocals and Arif Ortakmac on bass since June 2015.



32/20 Blues Band (DE)

Authentic and sweaty - a tribute to the blues - interpreted with the concentrated power of rock. For 19 years, 32/20 BLUES BAND has been "on the road" and has not only inspired fans of traditional blues in its more than 600 concerts across the republic and neighboring countries, but has also made hardcore rockers, punkers and electric disciples dance by its energetic show and infectious enthusiasm at various festivals.

Because blues rules!



Kutscher's Blues Band (AT)

Kutscher’s Blues Band succeed in blending the rock-spirit of the 1960s and 1970s with sounds that Rage Against The Machine, Muse or Mando Diao are famous for. That’s why the band’s music attracts both fans of the blues-rock genre and lovers of classic-rock and pop-acts. 

Virtuosic guitar riffs go hand in hand with marvellous songwriting and gorgeous lyrics. The band manages to tear down the walls between different genres of music, typical elements of blues-rock mingle with elements of classic-and alternative-rock.

The band was founded in 2015 and consists of Stephan Kutscher (vocals, guitar), Consti Höffinger (bass) and Reinhard Höbart (drums).
