Dire Straits Tribute

Dire Straits UK is a tribute to Dire Straits with the most authentic sound of any in the UK. The band have painstakingly studied and recreated the sound of the original Dire Straits recordings and live performances with unparalleled accuracy to arrangement, playing style and overall sound and texture in order to present a jaw dropping 90 minute show that will excite the most die hard of Dire Straits fans. 

 

The 6pc line up features 3 very notable musicians including:

 

• Steve Turner - 9 year member of Madness playing Saxophone

• Rick Benbow - arranger for Status Quo and Jewell among others

• Leon Cave - current touring drummer for Status Quo. 

 

 

The band has chosen an upbeat set of songs that include the biggest hits and iconic songs alongside a number of tastefully chosen upbeat and memorable album tracks.

 

The band is ideal at venues and events that cater for the older and more refined clientele. We play shows at Casinos, holiday parks, hotels, restaurants, music venues and theatres as well as exclusive private events looking for something a little bit special.  

 

We’re also looking to perform fly back and fly on/fly off contracts on ships and in hotels around the world.
