We are Fleetingwood Mac, a young and exciting new tribute to the legendary band Fleetwood Mac.

We didn’t just want to be another tribute band, with tacky wigs and fancy dress outfits. Instead we wanted to bring across the live sound of Fleetwood Mac, with just one guitar, a keyboard, a drum kit, a man on the bass and of course, the vocals!

As much as we aim to create a genuine Fleetwood Mac sound, we can’t help but give it a modern edge, it’s just the way we play. How else are five people supposed to play tribute to a band that have lasted nearly 50 years?

A band who have over time have featured eight different Guitarists & Vocalists. A band that tour arenas all over the world, with six extra touring musicians. A band that started out as part of the sixties British Blues Invasion and ended up as one of the biggest mainstream groups of the eighties. Let’s not even get into the scandals, relationships and excesses……

We work hard in rehearsals to get the details right and do justice to some classic songs that play a huge part in many people’s lives.

We also want to introduce the songs to a new generation of Fleetwood Mac fans, who just like ourselves, weren’t even born when the band were in their prime. We do not go on stage pretending to be Fleetwood Mac, instead we go on as who we are, five young musicians who love the music, and want to share the music of one of the worlds greatest bands to a wider audience.

Our first show was in March 2015 to a sell out crowd at the legendary venue The Cellars at Eastney. Over the summer we played many shows, each one bringing us together and getting the sound tighter until we played to a packed stage at Victorious Festival. Our first headline show at the Portsmouth Wedgwood Rooms was a sell out and we’re now looking forward to getting out and about to audiences 2016 and beyond.

Tickets for this gig are priced at £8.00 per person in advance or £10.00 per person on the door. Doors open at 8pm with a support act (TBC) and the band will take stage at around 9pm. Tickets are available to purchase online and from the Fishpond Bar. To book and pay over the telephone please call us on 01629 55006.
