Live/Wire: The AC/DC @ Arlington Arts
May 24 @ 8:00 pm

AC/DCLive/wire: The AC/DC Show

Live/Wire is The AC/DC Show. The hugely successful and unique six-man tribute to rock music’s greatest band AC/DC, complete with cannons, a wall of Marshalls’ and over two hours of High Voltage Rock ‘n’ Roll in a show critically acclaimed for its closeness in look and sound to the real thing. Both Bon (Dave) and Brian (Podge) are present on the Rock and Roll train for a night to remember and with the Rhythm section ‘locked in’ the freedom of the stage and the music is given to Simon as Angus Young who gives an uncanny performance with meticulous detail in appearance, energy and playing.

The band aim to put you slap bang in the middle of the show with hit after hit, and you are expected to join in ! There’ll also be one or two gems thrown in for the aficionados!

We’d be hung, drawn and quartered if we didn’t play all the classics, Back in BlackRosieHighway to hell are all there, and the songs keep on coming until the cannons fire ceremoniously to bring the evening to a superb crescendo. If by this time you are still standing…we salute you! Long Live AC/DC, Long Live LIVE/WIRE!

The Alter Eagles @ Arlington Arts
Jul 19 @ 8:00 pm
The Alter Eagles are delighted to bring their two hour-plus tribute to one of the greatest bands of all time to the Arlington Arts Centre for the very first time. Since they started in 2004, the six piece have built a reputation as one of the most faithful tributes around, ensuring that the audience enjoys a loving note-for-note recreation of songs like Hotel California, Lyin’ Eyes, New Kid in Town, Take it Easy, Tequila Sunrise, Take it to the Limit and Life in the Fast Lane – as well as more recent Eagles’ classics like How Long, Busy Being Fabulous and  and Long Road out of Eden; there’s even time for key Don Henley and Joe Walsh solo numbers like Boys of Summer and the classic Rocky Mountain Way.  Expect rocking twin lead guitar breaks, sumptuous four part country harmonies and an attention to detail that’s second to none. 
 
So what makes a great tribute? It’s more than simple mimicry, according to singer/guitarist Jay Stezaker. “It’s not as if we dress up like the Eagles or anything like that – we’re more interested in the music.”
 
“It’s been a real education,” says guitarist and singer Steve McCormack. “One of the Eagles’ great strengths is that they make everything sound so simple, but when you come to pick it apart, you realise how much is going on and what great songs they really are.”
 
The process can be painstaking but it’s always worthwhile. “There’s a real buzz when you crack a particular harmony or when Mike and Steve nail a guitar duet. Once that’s happened, we just want to get the song out there and start playing it in front of people,” says Stezaker.
 
The band members are Steve McCormack (vocals, guitars) Jay Stezaker (vocals, guitars) Alan Tomkins (keyboards, guitars, vocals) Rob Beattie (bass, acoustic guitar, vocals) Mike Bradley (guitars, vocals) and Jacob Booth (drums and percussion).

T.Rextasy @ Arlington Arts
Sep 13 @ 8:00 pm – 10:30 pm

T.RextasyT.Rextasy

Marc Bolan, with his band T.Rex, was one of the most flamboyant and charismatic stars of the original glam rock era.  With Bolan’s special ingredient of Rock-a-Boogie songs, the band had a string of huge hits throughout the 1970s including Love to Boogie, Telegram Sam, Jeepster and 20th Century Boy.

T.Rextasy have now been performing around the world for over 20 years, a career that ironically out lives Marc’s very own T.Rex.  The band is now accepted as the world’s only official live tribute band dedicated to Marc Bolan & T.Rex, and the only band endorsed and approved by Marc Bolan’s family, estate, original ex-members of T.Rex, and Bolan’s catalogue management.  The band has been described by many as ‘beyond the boundaries of tribute’.

Truly a rock’n’roll concert for all ages – If you would like to know exactly what a Marc Bolan concert was like in the 1970s, this show is for you!

T.Rextasy – awarded the accolade of ‘The Best Live Tribute Band in the UK ’ by BBC1 TV.

‘T.Rextasy are the tribute act who break all the rules by being bloody brilliant.  Danielz is an exact replica of Marc, he’s uncanny. – The Independent on Sunday
