The Clone Roses
Widely regarded as the no. 1 tribute to Madchester legends “The Stone Roses” The Clones are going from strength to strength. The longest serving and best selling Stone Roses Tribute around, The Clones hail from the North-West.
Roses fans can expect to hear all the classic anthems including “Waterfall” “She Bangs the Drums” “Made of Stone” and of course “I am the Resurrection.” Their attention to detail is astounding whether it’s the same amps or setlist or clothing or sound, The Clones have it nailed. Stone Roses bass player ‘Mani’ has described them as “the second best Stone Roses in the world.” They regularly play huge shows at some of the UK’s best venues including Manchester Academy, Nottingham Rock City, Shepherds Bush Empire and all the o2 Academy Venues. They were the Roses tribute choice for Isle of Wight Festival and Kendal Calling, so there’s your stamp of approval.

Laid (James Tribute)
On Saturday 19th May 2018 Mike Hadfield, lead singer, had a VIP ticket to the sound check prior to the James gig at King George’s Hall Blackburn. During the question and answer session Mike grabbed the microphone and asked the band their thoughts of him setting up a tribute band to honour their music. After deliberating as a band, Saul spoke for them saying “Go for it!” and Tim Booth gave his blessing. Mike set to work gathering the troops to create a band of fans for fans - Laid - a tribute to James.
Laid have hit the tribute scene with lightning pace, receiving high praise everywhere they play. Bookings all over the country have come in thick and fast and the band have marked their territory as the leading tribute to one of the best bands to come out of Manchester.
Playing all the hits including “Sit Down”, “She’s a Star”, “Tomorrow”, “Come Home” and “Laid” they are a must see!
