Fleetwood Mac TributeSep 10 2021

We didn’t just want to be another tribute band, with tacky wigs and fancy dress outfits. Instead we wanted to bring across the live sound of Fleetwood Mac, with just one guitar, a keyboard, a drum kit, a man on the bass and of course, the vocals!

As much as we aim to create a genuine Fleetwood Mac sound, we can’t help but give it a modern edge, it’s just the way we play. How else are five people supposed to play tribute to a band that have lasted nearly 50 years?

A band who have over time have featured eight different Guitarists & Vocalists. A band that tour arenas all over the world, with six extra touring musicians. A band that started out as part of the sixties British Blues Invasion and ended up as one of the biggest mainstream groups of the eighties. Let’s not even get into the scandals, relationships and excesses...

We work hard in rehearsals to get the details right and do justice to some classic songs that play a huge part in many people’s lives.

We also want to introduce the songs to a new generation of Fleetwood Mac fans, who just like ourselves, weren’t even born when the band were in their prime. We do not go on stage pretending to be Fleetwood Mac, instead we go on as who we are, five musicians who love the music, and want to share the music of one of the worlds greatest bands to a wider audience.

Julia becomes Tina in every way, wig, make-up, replica costumes and of course the famous legs and movement. Julia makes this show her own, catapulting it to the top of the Tina Turner tribute list. 

With vocals direct from Nutbush, Tennessee, mannerisms that are "Pure Tina" and a stage presence that commands the room, Julia weaves her magic and delivers a spectacular show that when you shut your eyes Tina Turner herself is in the room. The show is further enhanced by a spectacular moving-head light display, and a large video screen, which helps tell the story of Tina's incredible raise to fame and stardom and allows virtual duets to be performed live on stage between Tina and other singing legends from past and present.
