An Audience with Stephen Wrench

A slice of American rock ‘n’ roll history
We’ve had a lot of remarkable acts at The Balor down through the years but I’m scratching my head trying to think of any that are as steeped in rock ‘n’ roll history as Stephen Wrench.
A Grammy nominator and voter, he has a pedigree rarely topped in the music industry. For starters he’s performed with and managed Lynyrd Skynyrd for over 18 years – and that’s just for starters. In fact, his biography reads like a who’s who of musical giants. He’s also, as either a former member, performer, producer or manager, worked with some of the most creative artists on the planet including Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Toto, Survivor, Molly Hatchet, hpw href="https://www.blackfootband.com/" target="_blank">Blackfoot, Grand Funk Railroad and scores more.
A former division head of RCA records, Stephen now runs his own music company Musik & Film, partnering with independent artists such as Damien Rice, Coldplay and Keith Urban providing production, radio promotion and distribution through Sony.
He’ll be playing classic rock – both original and the music of his colleagues – and, with a past like his you can be sure he’ll have some stories to tell. Don’t miss this night of story and song by a man who really has seen and done it all.
Joining Stephen at The Balor will be hotly tipped Dublin band Elevation Falls whose recent headline gig at The Dunfanaghy Songwriting Festival had the phrase ‘Next Big Thing’ tripping off peoples tongues.
Also on the bill are Belfast 5 piece Rock n Roots band Stormtree whose blend of atmospheric Celtic tones with epic stories of murder, greed, love, lust and agony has won them widespread acclaim.
