Nationally hailed as one of the best Jam tribute band in the business, the band has built a large following throughout the country.

From 1977's In the City through to 1982's The Gift, taking in A Bomb in Wardour St, Down In The Tube Station, Strange Town and many more Classics. And what a high to finish on, the distinctive riff to A Town Called Malice sends the place wild.

UB40 – Rats In The Kitchen

Rats in the Kitchen are from UB40’s home town of Birmingham by a group of friends who all shared a common love of reggae music. They are in demand throughout the length and breadth of the UK and beyond as the number one, officially endorsed UB40 style act. It would be foolish though to view the 'Rats' as simply a 'Stars in their Eyes' style tribute band as they are also accomplished musicians in their own right. As well as the brilliant covers of UB40 hits, they also drop Bob Marley and ska classics into the set. The audience, UB40 fans or not, cannot help but enjoy themselves. Testimony to this can be found in the feedback left on the official UB40 guest book from gig-goers and the glowing reports written in the Stage newspaper.

Who – Who’s Who

Who's Who is a dynamic powerful tribute band from the UK with all of the energies, passion and angst of The Who at their peak. A closer visual representation would be very hard to find.

Who's Who's exiting live performances with Townshend's leaping and Daltrey's microphone whirling antics receive incredible reactions and at one of them Pete Townshend's brother, Paul, danced at the front of the stage for the whole performance ecstatically declaring later that this tribute band was "Astounding and brilliant!”
