Punkoween at the Face Bar!
Punkoween - tribute festival with three of the classic punk bands Blondie, Sex Pistols and the Ramones
Since forming early in 2018, Totally Blondie have rapidly gained a reputation as the best Blondie tribute band in the UK!
Blondie were one of the most iconic bands of the 70’s & 80’s, with posters of Debbie Harry adorning most teenagers’ walls, and they’ve continued turning out hits and great music right up to 2017’s Pollinator album. People of all ages, not just hardcore fans, know and love songs like Hanging On The Telephone, One Way Or Another, Call Me, Atomic, Heart Of Glass, Sunday Girl, Denis and all the other famous chart-toppers. And Totally Blondie make sure these fantastic tunes sound as fresh and exciting today as they did back then.
With a stunning lookalike and soundalike singer, an exceptional, professional live band, their full-on, passionate performances are winning over audiences up and down the country. So, come along and relieve those classic moments – it’s totally authentic … it’s totally awesome … it’s Totally Blondie!
The Pistols formed in 2004, and is a full blown Sex Pistols tribute act recreating the rawness of the original band.
They hail from good old London Town where the UK punk movement was born way back in the 1970's. The event that is The Pistols provides an excellent opportunity for Dads and Lads to bond, bridging the decades of rock music and introducing new, younger fans to the classic sound of 1977. Younger audiences are able to trace the punk family tree and see what it was the made the likes of Nirvana, Oasis and Green Day first pick up their guitars.
The Pistols are a frighteningly close authentication of the original band but with added flair, charm, wit and humour.
The Remones are a Ramones tribute from Reading. The Ramones originated from Queens, NYC. The Remones originate from just off the Oxford Road in Reading which is even rougher than Queens - especially on a Tuesday and Friday afternoon.
Look forward to a high octane ride with classics such as Blitzkrieg Bop, Sheena is a Punk Rocker, Havana Affair, Surfin Bird, Gimme Shock Treatment, Somebody put Something in my Drink, Bonzo goes to Bitburg, Beat on the Brat and many more total bangers from one of the most influential bands of the 20th century.
