Bob Marley Tribute Acts
Bob Marley Tribute Acts are a speciality of ours as Cherry Ripe Management has exclusive representation of its own Bob Marley & The Wailers tribute band called ‘Trenchtown Experience’ which has been the No 1 Bob Marley tribute in the UK since 1992. However, the original band is a large one and we have over the years represented smaller groups and even solo tributes to this iconic artist.
Some of these play to backing tracks and some play live - and some even with an acoustic ‘unplugged’ sound. So we do have a wide range of Marley tributes to suit all sized events and most budgets. Please investigate some of our excellent Bob Marley tribute acts here.
UB40 Tribute Acts
UB40 Tribute Acts are also very popular and we book some of the best ones in the country. We have close associations with past and present band members of UB40 itself which gives us great insight into the very best tribute acts to this hugely successful band that have had over 50 hits in the UK and sold 70 million records worldwide.
The original band is a large one, but again we have smaller versions - although we will always recommend you book the larger versions that include horn players and backing singers, if your budget will allow, of course! Please click here for some clips of our favourite UB40 Tribute Acts.
Ska Tribute Acts
Ska Tribute bands were some of the first tribute bands in the UK- before ‘tribute bands’ were even a thing. The Specials’ 2-Tone Records label signed other bands like Madness, The Selecter, Bad Manners and The Beat, all of whom recorded post-punk informed tribute covers of original hits from the 60’s by Jamaican ska artists.
Ska originated in Jamaica first and was a very popular music genre with British mods and then later with many skinheads between the mid-60’s and mid 70’s. Those 2-Tone bands wrote their own songs too, but started out as ska tribute bands essentially - and today there are several we can provide for your event, so please explore our excellent contemporary ska tribute bands here.
