"...the best copy band I have seen to date - close your eyes and it's myboys..."- Miles Copeland
"...close your eyes, and you're listening to The Police at the peak oftheircareer, open your eyes, and you won't believe it's not ThePolice...completely captures, not just the music of The Police, buttheirvery essence...absolutely amazing"- Ian Copeland
SO WHEN ARE YOU COMING TO SEE US NEXT?!?!?!? Well here's your chance...
THIS SATURDAY NIGHT we'll be playing with BONFIRE the great tribute to ACDC, and, what willbethe hottest band to come, THE DARES.
