Not quite a trio in this clip that I posted a few years back..
Hugh McDowell wasn't an original member of OrKestra he joined in 1991.
In 1986 Kelly founded an unsuccessful band called Player, he and Mik joined forces to form OrKestra in 1988 with he aim of performing ELO songs as well as their original material. Orkestra struck a record deal with Dino Records in The Netherlands in 1991, Kelly and Mik roped in Hugh for the recording of OrKestra's debut album "Beyond The Dream". 19 tracks were recorded, only 11 of them found their way onto the finished album. "Beyond The Dream" was released in November 1991 for Continental sale only, the bands home country didn't get to release the album. In 1992 Dino Records went bust, so the album wasn't even available on the Continent anymore.
In 1993 "All at Once Records" bought the rights to OrKestra's material, They decided to release an album called "Roll Over Beethoven" though out Europe and The UK. This album contained 8 tracks from "Beyond The Dream", other tracks on the 1993 album were a remake of the title song "Roll Over Beethoven" this version is far inferior to the original ELO recording from 1972, there is also "Dirty Old Town" which was recorded in 1991, "Rock 'n' Roll Fever" and two re-recorded songs from Kelly's 1982 solo album "Dear Mama" and "Sea Of Dreams". By this time OrKestra has ceased to be as a working band and Kelly and Mik were full members of ELO Part II.

Horacewimp: We are all good thanks, just wishing I could go on a foreign holiday, it’s just not worth the risk with Covid and the possibility of a 14 day quarantine, we may do some short breaks in the U.K.
