Show Description

Dire Straits Tribute is 6 professional musicians very closely replicating the sounds and arrangements of Dire Straits' most recognisable songs and where most tribute bands take liberties with Mark Knopfler's arrangements, Dire Straits Tribute goes all the way to bringing all of the details that will have you thinking you're in the presence of the original band.
Featuring Steve Turner of "Madness" performing Chris White's Saxophone parts, Rick Benbow on keys - bringing the synths and pianos that made songs like Money for Nothing so recognisable, and Mark Knopfler tribute David Knight who very ...

Amazing band, really talented musicians and it’s so authentic you can believe you’re up close and personal with the real thing (although these guys are better!). A top night out, if you like the music of Dire Straits they’re well worth seeing more than once for all the fun and fab sounds! �x

We were staying in the area with friends, saw the ad for the show at Huntingdon Hall and decided all six of us would go along. I am so glad we didn't miss this show - it was lively, entertaining and an absolute MUST - not only for any Dire Straits fan, but also for any music lover who appreciates live music. Every member of this band is highly talented, and together they reproduce the Dire Straits sound with uncanny accuracy. If you see them coming to play near you, do not miss it! You will not be disappointed. I look forward to the next time we can get to see you!

How wrong was I?Well, let me start by saying I stupidly thought this was the real Dire Straits less Mark Knopfler. Found out this morning it was 'tribute' band and was initially disappointed and considered not going as the hotel I booked was also 10 miles away from venue. Tribute does not do this band any justice at all! They were each accomplished musicians and in fact added a freshness and energy to a distant fond memory. Over the recent years I have seen Knopfler twice and not been impressed. Can a imitation band really rejuvenate old classics and potentially add something extra? YES and YES again. If you want to hear all your favourite songs always choose Dire Straits UK. Massive respect ????‍????
