If you have been visiting this site recently (or the BM Message Board) you may have come across the videos of The Bond Band - the UK's premiere James Bond tribute band.
Specializing in James Bond themes and incidental music from all 21 007 movies, performances of the Bond Band in action can be seen on YouTube and at corporate events and parties across the United Kingdom. You can visit The Bond Band's web site for booking information.
From their site, a little information about the Band:
The Bond Band is a 12 piece band which performs all the music from the world famous James Bond films.
From the very first time the world famous James Bond Theme was heard in "Dr. No," the James Bond films have developed into perhaps the most popular series ever.
The exotic locations, the actors, the Bond girls, the villains, Miss Moneypenny, Q, the gadgets – they are all things we have come to expect in a James Bond film and of course a stunning, electrifying and engrossing musical score featuring an outstanding singer is always part of the experience!
James Bond film title songs have been recorded by some of the top artists in the world, including: Madonna, Louis Armstrong, Paul McCartney, Shirley Bassey, Tom Jones, Lulu and many more.
During the show, The Bond Band performs title songs from all 21 films plus some of the famous incidental music too.
What sets The Bond Band apart from other tribute bands their superb 6 piece horn section, backed by one of the tightest rhythm sections around, allowing them to re-create a full orchestral sound.
The Bond Band is available for corporate events and themed evenings, and is also excellent entertainment at weddings and parties.
Everything is performed live - you really are listening to the original music, with no pre-recorded or pre-programmed parts included. But to complete your evening we also offer a disco and much more!
The Bond Band works with various actors including a "Jaws" lookalike and of course a fabulous Sean Connery lookalike too! We can put together a special show your guests will never forget!
Members of the band have performed on international TV shows and have played alongside original Bond theme artists. Talk about a perfect musical act for a Bond event!
