What and Awesome Night! What an Atmosphere! Speak and Spell were great. At times we forgot we were watching a tribute band. Well done Guys. Totally loved it

To discuss a booking or for more information please email the band’s manager, Claire Whatley.

We play throughout Europe with a hard won reputation and continually evolving show playing classic era tracks with performance cues that the real Depeche Mode will never repeat. Take a look at the Social Media responses from our Black Celebration show

Behind the Wheel & Question of Time

Our shows span from the earliest days through the eighties, nineties and noughties to far more recent times, reliving and reminding our audiences of the journey of the world’s most successful electronic act.

Depeche Mode fans and even those behind the scenes of the real band invariably say how close our recreations are. This is because we are primarily fans who just happen to be musicians. We do it for the love of it, unconditionally. Check out the Bio for a more detailed history of where we came from.
