David Knight Presents…
The Definitive Mark Knopfler Songbook
The Best of Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits
David Knight is the lead guitarist and front person for Tribute Band “DS:UK”, about to embark on a 50 date tour in Theatres and Premier Entertainment Properties across the UK, Scotland and Wales, and he now makes his solo show available to Cruise ships and Hotels across the world.
David presents an unforgettable evening of Mark Knopfler’s music, handpicked from his 50 year career as the frontman for the iconic DS Band, Notting Hillbillies, and his highly successful Solo Care ... er.
During this unique Hour and a Half show, audiences will be treated to British Songbook classics such as “Romeo and Juliet”, “Walk of Life”, “ Money for Nothing” and "Sultans of Swing”, along side wonderful solo hits such as "Darling Pretty”, "Golden Heart” and "What it is”.
Mark Knopfler has been David’s musical influence since he started playing at 15 - and it shows. The attention to detail in David’s playing is astounding. From using Mark’s signature finger style technique, to recreating each of the iconic guitar sounds with the right guitars and guitar amps using Kemper’s industry standard profiling technology, David’s show is a true tribute to a musician who’s influenced thousands across the world.
In the words of Mark himself - “you’ll get a shiver in the dark!” ”
You can see and hear David perform with DS:UK at www.direstraitstribute.co.uk which includes video of a recent show at Tunbridge Wells, a montage of footage and recent studio recordings of a few selected tracks.
David's show can be presented, as required by the client, up to a full 1.5hr performance.
Each song in the set has been charted and notated for:
• Rhythm Guitar
• Bass Guitar
… and can be performed with a resident band of various sizes. Should a property not have a resident band, Live Backing tracks can be used.
DS:UKas a whole can also be booked for international opportunities and tours.
