Europe UK




Europe UK - paying tribute to the biggest rock band ever to come out of Scandinavia... Europe!

Featuring current and former members of some of the UK's biggest and best tributes to Marillion, Whitesnake, Judas Priest, Saxon, Glenn Hughes and more, the pedigree of the band is second to none. With the commitment and attention to detail required to recreate the power and authenticity of a live Europe show.

Band members have played with some of the best & well respected names in the tribute world and there are many decades worth of experience between us.

We're tackling material from all era's including the hugely successful radio hits from the late 80's right up to the present, with tracks from the latest album “Walk The Earth” included in the set.

Gigs are stacking up and are being covered by an ‘ivory tinkling’ friend of ours, but we still require a dedicated keys player. We have our own studio close to Derby and can supply tea, coffee, biscuits and the occasional beer!!

If you, or someone you know, has any interest in joining then get in touch with as much background info as possible. Find us on FB
