The Kopycat Killers (Headliner) (20:30- 22:30)
The Kopycat Killers first formed when frontman Stuart was told for the 200th time at one of his own gigs (in his originals rock band Lux Lisbon) that he ‘sounds just like that bloke out of The Killers’ and, being a huge fan, thought, “well why not!” – and set about assembling his band from his contacts in both the London and Newcastle rock scene, all of the highest calibre and to a man incredible and hugely experienced rock musicians with University Degrees in their respective instruments.
The Kopycat Killers attention to detail is intense, featuring authentic tones and sequenced studio sounds to emulate ‘The Killers’ own, backing musicians, along with the stage wear, the instruments, set choice and decoration (including the Killers own famous ‘K’ keyboard stand), it’s all present and correct.
Above all though, the musicianship, energy and the atmosphere created is top tier – and as huge fans, they take recreating The Killers wonderful songs and amazing shows very seriously indeed. Come say hello at a gig soon!
These guys will certainly have you hitting the dance floor!
