Devizes Scooter Club:
"... a dazzling show; a precise Blondie tribute meshed with other two-tone classics in a style Debbie Harry would cover them ..."
Steve ( The Cockney Rebel) Finch, Riviera FM Radio:
". . . they were brilliant, after just one song early in the evening they had the dance floor filled all night, sounded like Blondie too, they did songs from the Specials, Madness ,The Beat, even did an Oasis cover and many more, great entertainment, great value as they did over their time as well as everyone was shouting more, can't recommend them highly enough . . .",

Vocals and the boss of Dave
Welcome to our musical BLONDIE and SKA adventure. Our aim is to keep faithfully, creating the sounds we love in pubs and clubs across the UK.
Nothing is as exciting as the thumping sound of Ska; as warming as the mellow rhythm of Reggae; or as thrilling as the energy of MOD. Add the voice of Blondie and our vision is complete.
Music is a way of life, it's the banter and comradery, the sound checks, the performances and the meeting up with new friends and enjoying the exhilarating after-show-glow.
We aim to bring to you the passion of Ranking Roger, Selector, Madness, Bad Manners, The Jam, UB40, Blondie and so much more.
"My music will go on forever", Bob Marley.
