Dire Straits UK [Tribute Band]
SatAug182018Dire Straits UK (Tribute Band) at Ruislip Social Club, Ruislip Dire Straits:UK is a brand new UK based tribute band to Mark Knopfler’s legendary Dire Straits. The band has that launched in 1977 has spawned some of the greatest loved songs of all time including Sultans of Swing, Walk of Life, the iconic Money for Nothing and the spine tingling Romeo and Juliet. At the height of their career, Dire Straits were the biggest stadium live band in the world and their 1985 Brothers in Arms tour at Wembley and 1992 On Every Street tour were major highlights in the rock history.Formed in 2015, 6 piece Dire Straits:UK tributes the energy and arrangements that made those live shows so iconic, bringing the feel and personality of the original band back once again to live audiences with jaw dropping accuracy.Filling the role of Mark Knopfler is David Knight, a life-long Dire Straits fan who started playing guitar almost immediately after hearing Sultans of Swing for the first time. David’s guitar style was heavily influenced by Knopfler and he has worked incredibly hard to faithfully re-create the guitar parts and sounds synonymous with each of the songs.Providing Chris White’s wonderful Saxophone lines, on loan from chart topping band “Madness” is Steve Turner. Steve has played with the real Madness for over 9 years and with his own Madness tribute band for 13. His love of Dire Straits attracted him to join DS:UK.Next in the line up is Rick Benbow, who’s professional credits include touring with Jewel and arranging for Status Quo. He’s also played with nearly every major Pink Floyd tribute band in the UK!Our excellent Dire Straits tribute return.8.30pm - midnight Info »
