Billy Liberator and the Orbiteers made a successful return to post-Covid full band performance when they played in the Back Room at the Star Inn in Guildford. This wasn’t the simple corner of a forgotten pub room that it may sound, but an established stage setting for local bands in Guildford, and made for a grand return for the band.
The evening began with a Billy Liberator solo acoustic set, warming up the audience for the 21 song Orbiteers show. Billy’s acoustic set comprised: Due South Maintown Future Days Now As Good As You Are There Goes My Girl The Stuntwoman Evelyn (with Annie Hunt on backing vocals)
Featuring a few cover versions by the likes of The Alarm, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Humble Pie, amongst liberator originals the Billy Liberator and the Orbiteers set comprised: Beat My Retreat Gimme Something Good (cover) Mary Janes Last Dance (cover) Just Be Long Reach Old Light Breakdown (cover) Can You Feel It?
