John Prine Tribute Band

Bruised Orange is Ireland’s premier John Prine Tribute band. Boasting some of Ireland’s most experienced musicians, the 5-piece band is made up of Michael ‘Mike Mack’ McGarry (Rhythm Guitar & Vocals), Anthony Toby Cregan (Lead Guitar, Vocals), Derek Matthews (Bass & Vocals) Steve Milne (Keyboards) and Shay Carry (Percussion). Each member brings a unique set of talents and abilities to the group which provides for a unique live John Prine experience.

The show is fronted by Mike Mack McGarry who accurately reflects John’s vocal range and affected twang and drawl with similar ease of delivery, which thrive off a peculiar, domestic relation to country, folk, rhythm and blues. His storytelling and short antidotes are also an integral part of a Bruised Orange live show.

Lead guitarist Anthony Toby Cregan is one of Ireland’s most revered guitarists. His style and playing reflects that of Jason Wilbur, Prine’s go-o guy from the early 1990s up until John’s death.

Bassist Derek Matthews is well known as a member of one of Ireland’s top wedding bands ‘Stop the Clock’. His double bass and look reflects that of Prine’s bass man Dave Jacques.

On keyboards is Steve Milne who has spent decades on tour with Daniel O’Donnell and Mary Duff. Steve is one of Ireland’s most talented musicians.

Drummer Shay Carry and his unique style is the backbone of the band. Shay has toured with some of Ireland’s top country artists.
