Tribute to a whole era of British music
By David Wood
Where: Frog & Fiddle, High Street, Cheltenham
When: Saturday, January 19, from 8pm
The ultimate Britpop tribute comes to Cheltenham for the first time this monrth.
The Britpop Boys bring their full two-hour non-stop tribute show that takes you from the Madchester scene of the late 80s through to the Britpop explosion of the mid-90s.
Formed in 2016 from musicians who themselves have played with the likes of Paul Weller, Steve Craddock of Ocean Colour Scene and Andy Maclure of Sleeper, it's safe to say the foundations of this band are drawn straight from the bands they tribute.
The evening will feature anthems, hits and hidden gems from Oasis, Blur, Pulp, Stone Roses, Cast, Shed Seven, Ocean Colour Scene, Republica and many more.
This isn't just a tribute to a band, this is a tribute to a whole era, the music of a generation when British bands found their voice again.
Billed as the definitive tribute to all that is Britpop, they take to the stage with a swagger Liam Gallagher would be proud of. The energetic five-piece pay homage to all that is quintessentially Britpop, with anthem after anthem from the icons of the age celebrating the era of cool Brittannia in all its glory.
Before the Britpop Boys take to the stage there will be local support from acoustic indie rock musician Laggy Strides at 8pm and indie rock band Lower Loveday at 8.40pm.
The event is 18+ and tickets are £7 in advance and £10 on the door.
