The Doors Alive
Date: 21st April 2018
Details:  The Doors Alive widely regarded as the closest and most enthralling representation of the legendary 1960’s rock gods, The Doors, in the world today. The band formed in 2005. Since then there have been 3 Jims, 2 Rays, 2 Robbys and just 1 John, but the current line up is the best it has ever been!

The band re-create the sound, look, presence and magic of a real 1960’s Doors concert, perfectly and effortlessly transporting the audience back in time with classic hits such as ‘Light My Fire’, ‘When The Music’s Over, Riders On The Storm, The End and many more. The Doors Alive have over 1,000 shows under their belt to date.

Their frontman, Mike, captures the look, attitude, and rich baritone voice of the late, great Jim Morrison with ease while his compadres showcase the musical chops of original Doors members Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and John Densmore with finesse and authenticity.

The Doors Alive have left awestruck audiences in 15 countries around the world, including the UK, Ireland, France, Belgium, Spain, The Netherlands, Germany,
Austria, Poland, Slovenia, Malta, Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, UAE and Chile. They have played at the legendary Isle of Wight Festival and played on the same bill with such legendary musicians as Status Quo, Nazareth, Uriah Heep, Hayseed Dixie, and Eric Burdon, to name but a few.

To achieve their authentic sixties sound, the band use the very same instruments that members of the Doors originally used. With their arsenal of vintage gear, they create note perfect musical landscapes that evoke the swinging days of The Doors at their peak.

Definitely Oasis
Date: 27th April 2018
Details:  Definitely Oasis are regarded by many Oasis fans and promoters alike as the best Oasis tribute band there is.

The band regularly sell out top class venues across the UK and were recently the first ever tribute band to sell out Glasgow’s iconic Garage Venue quite an achievement when you consider only 3 years ago the band played there first gig in Glasgow to less than 50 people to now playing closer to 1000 people shows how good this band is and how far they have come.

Everything the band does is all about what the fans want to see and hear a lot of hard work goes on in the background making sure that the look and sound are bang on so much so that they have been asked to play Glasgows iconic barrowlands venue on November 26th 2016 a venue loved by both Liam & Noel and where Oasis played arguably some of there finest ever shows and another first for an Oasis tribute band proves why they are the best Oasis tribute in the Business.

The Prince Experience
Date: 18th May 2018
Details:  In 2016, we lost Prince, one of the most prolific and controversial musical icons of all time. It seemed that there was nothing this man couldn’t do, and because there was only one PRINCE, there is only one Prince tribute band, The Prince Experience.

The nine piece Prince Experience comprises some amazing musicians who all have one thing in common – they are huge fans of the music. This love is clear for all to see and hear when the band take to the stage.

Fast becoming known as ‘the tightest live band out there’ The Prince Experience play with a passion that is undeniable. Jaw breaking high notes, screams and high heels, wailing guitar solos, Linn drums, loops, funky bass, live horns and that famous ‘purple’ sense of humour.

Only The Prince Experience have the audacity and the musicianship to do justice to the music of the purple genius and it all comes together in an incredible onstage explosion of hits. From the floor shaking 1999, through the era defining Purple Rain soundtrack right through the hits of the 90s, and beyond. One thing is for sure, you’d better bring your comfortable shoes, because you WILL be dancing. Celebrate the music of Prince with The Prince Experience.
