Spraggan returns to the live scene in October 2018. The tour includes huge shows at iconic venues such as Glasgow Barrowland, Manchester Academy and London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

Pearl Jam UK:
The World's Greatest Pearl Jam Tribute.
Pearl Jam UK are a Liverpool based tributeto Pearl Jam consisting of five friends who all share agenuine love and respect for one of the greatest and  most influential American rock bands of all time.  Driven by an attention to detail that is second to none, the band spend hours on end listening to recordings by Pearl Jam, discovering the most minute of details contained within the music, watching hour­ after hour of live footage to ensure that the Pearl Jam experience is recreated with 100% accuracy – and no compromise. The band also perfectly recreates that distinctive 90’s era “grunge” look that became synonymous with Pearl Jam, with
 corduroy jackets, flannel shirts,shorts and doc martens aplenty. A combination of the most accurate performance of Pearl Jam’s music being played today (maybe even more accurate than the band themselves?) alongside genuine era clothing, all being performed with that typical Pearl Jam passion that made them stand out from their peers, thus culminates in a tribute band that almost becomes more than a tribute… In short, Pearl Jam UK makes you feel like you are watching Pearl Jam. Pearl Jam UK have firmly established themselves as the definitive tribute, having completed a “sold out” UK Tour and headlining major festivals along the way playing to thousands of dedicated fans. Performing songs from the entire Pearl Jam catalogue, and some of the covers they play (from artists such as Neil Young and The Who) – fans both old and new will find the songs they
 know and love in Pearl Jam UK's set.

Pinked Floyd

Saturday 27th October

Academy 3

This seven-piece tribute band have been amazing audiences all over the
Northwest with their engaging and energetic performance celebrating the
magical music of Pink Floyd. They have been especially praised for the
accuracy of their performance based on the studio versions of music
spanning the entire output of the Floyd from early days through to the
most recently released Endless River, with firm favourites Dark Side Of
The Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall particularly featured.
Lead by front-man Russell supported by Andrea’s astonishing vocals (her
Great Gig has been described as “the best I have heard since the release
of DSOTM”), attention to detail is the bye-word for Luke (keyboards and
effects), drummer Lee, Jack on bass, and Harry (guitar and sax), while you
might think it was David Gilmour himself on stage when you hear Alan’s
lead guitar riffs.

Some reactions to recent performances: 


“What a show!! I will
be coming to see these again. All round great performance. Have a cigar,
fellas & girl” 

(Jay Frazer)


“There was something very Floydish about
spending a summer's evening listening to Pink(ed) Floyd music. Never going
to see the real thing at Pompeii but this was a pretty good substitute!”
(David Evans) 


“My heroes will never be forgotten as long as you are on the
stage and that's from a 68 year-old roadie of the original PF! You are
another brick in the wall!" 

(David Larkin, former PF roadie)
