Formed in 2015, Dire Straits:UK is a 6 piece self contained band featuring some outstanding musicians performing Guitar, Keys, Saxophone Rhythm Guitar, Bass Guitar and Drums.
The band has been making consistent sales at their recent South Coast based shows, and the response to our presentation of Dire Straits’ music has been overwhelmingly positive.
The Saxophone parts are performed by Steve Turner, 9 year member of chart topping band ‘Madness’; the Keyboard parts are performed by Rick Benbow who has touring and recording credits for the likes of ‘Jewel’ and ‘Status Quo’; Rhythm Guitar is performed by Lachlan Horne and the lead guitar parts are performed by, un-doubtedly, the most accurate tribute to Mark Knopfler - David Knight.
The band tributes the mid-80’s and early 90’s concert eras of Dire Straits, a time when they were one of the biggest stadium rock bands in the world.
During the 1.5 -2hr hour show, you’ll hear closely recreated performances of classic Dire Straits songs including Sultans of Swing, Money for Nothing, Romeo and Juliet and Walk of life along with other classic and popular album tracks.
In fact, DS:UK goes further than any other UK based tribute band in re-creating the Dire Straits sound and you only need to compare Promo Reels to hear the difference in Dire Straits UK’s attention to those little details.
