The fully authentic Sex Pistols tribute act from Good Old London Town! The Pistols are the world renowned Sex Pistols tribute band playing all of the original material from one of the the most influential bands of our time, the innovators of punk rock. A worryingly authentic Sex Pistols tribute band from Good Old London Town; real musicians, real punk, and the closest thing to the original Sex Pistols you are ever likely to see. All of the blistering hits such as Pretty Vacant, God Save The Queen and Anarchy In the UK are there...but you will also be treated to the farcicle gems of the Sex Pistols aftermath such as Friggin In The Riggin, Silly Thing and My Way.The Pistols are a full blown Sex Pistols tribute act recreating the rawness of the original band. They hail from good old London Town where the UK punk movement was born way back in the 1970’s. They are a frighteningly close authentication of the original band but with added flair, charm and humour. The band perform a blistering 90 minute show which includes all of the anti-hits made famous by the Sex Pistols in the late 1970's, such as Anarchy In The UK, Pretty Vacant and God Save The Queen. Add to this a special 'Sid Sings' tribute to the notorious Sid Vicious, including I Wanna Be Your Dog, My Way, Something Else and C'Mon Everybody and you are all set for a spectacular show. The event that is The Pistols stage show provides an excellent opportunity for Dads and Lads to bond, bridging the decades of rock music and introducing new, younger fans to the classic sound of 1977. Younger audiences are able to trace the punk family tree and see what it was the made the likes of Nirvana, Oasis and Green Day first pick up their guitars. Gone has the intimidating hell-raising legend that hallmarked the original Sex Pistols, replaced by fun filled banter and on-stage antics that will make even the hardest nosed audience smile; but never once sacrificing the raw, driving sound of British punk at it's very very best. Any venue is considered and all music, PA, lighting and backdrops are supplied by the band to ensure that a totally professional and fun-filled event will take place leaving everybody with a smile on their face and a tear of nostalgia in the eye.

The ultimate tribute to iconic New York punks The Ramones, playing all the classic songs such as "Rockaway Beach", "Blitzkrieg Bop", "Sheena Is a Punk Rocker", "Beat on the Brat", "Cretin Hop", "Pinhead" and loads more. The Shamones deliver an outstanding set of 40 Ramones classics with fantastic attention to musical detail. Hey Ho Let's Go ! Formed in late 2010 when Andy Johnson coaxed Bryn Merrick (former Damned bassist) out of musical retirement. Dave Johnson was soon recruited on drums and The Shamones were born. The band have been perfecting the classic Ramones sound since and are fast becoming recognised as the best tribute around to the New York punk heroes. The Shamones played at Tribfest, Europe's biggest and best tribute band festival (www.tribfest.co.uk) in 2011 & 2012 and featured in the review of 2012's event in the NME. Friday August 16th 2013 will see the band make their third apearance at this amazing festival. A busy 2012 saw The Shamones contribute two tracks to the "Ramone To The Bone" tribute album and play shows in Birmingham, Cardiff, Barry, Carmarthen, Romford, Ipswich, Wolverhampton, Scunthorpe and Cannock as well as playing the famous Boston Arms in Camden. 2013 has seen the band add more songs to the set (43 in total at the last count!) and continue to gig around the country to great acclaim. More gigs are being added all the time including Garden Glasto in Leicester on June 1st and an appearance at the Alice In Wonderland club mystery tour show in October alongside Zodiac Mindwarp & Dr & The Medics.
