Whitesnake UK play tribute to the very best of David Coverdale’s multi platinum

selling band, Whitesnake.

From the very beginnings of the Moody / Marsden line up to the current US led

incarnation faithfully reproducing such timeless classics such as ‘Fool For Your Loving’, ‘Don’t

Break My Heart Again’, ‘Is This Love’, ‘Here I Go Again’ and many others.

With a band line up comprising professional recording artists who have shared stages

with the likes of Kiss, Motley Crue, Saxon, Kid Creole, Toto, Mr Big, Faith No More, Status

Quo, Bon Jovi, Blur & Whitesnake themselves. Members from some of the world’s most

respected tribute bands, extensive worldwide touring from Europe to the USA and Japan to

Australia, syndicated worldwide tv appearances, multiple features in the world’s leading rock

music publications & a combined musical experience of over one hundred and twenty years,

Whitesnake UK can proudly boast to having some of the most accomplished personnel in any

tribute band.

Formed in 2005, Whitesnake UK have performed extensively through the UK gaining a

reputation for being THE tribute to Whitesnake whilst at the same time creating an

unforgettable live show which has seen them play to sold out shows & festivals making them

one of the hottest tribute acts currently working the UK circuit

Whitesnake UK concentrate on reproducing that classic Whitesnake sound without the need

for artificial backing tracks, gimmicks or wigs for that matter !

Having reformed in 2015 after a three year hiatus, Whitesnake UK are back stronger

than ever, selling venues out across the country . Their extensive list of shows throughout

2023 (as well as being personally chosen by tribute giants, Live Wire…..the AC/DC show to be

their special guests at their largest shows) just proves just how in demand they are.

Whitesnake UK won’t be resting on their laurels any time soon though, Shows & festivals

across Europe are already confirmed for 2024.

Fully supported by past & present members of Whitesnake with a 110% live

experience that will have you out of your seats dancing & shouting for more,………Whitesnake

UK are certain to deliver !

If Carlsberg did tribute bands………………………………

TIM READ

Lead singer, Tim Reed is the epitome of the legendary ‘snake’ frontman himself.

Mesmerising the ladies and championing the men with his stage prowess & vocal

brilliance. A lifelong snake fan, Tim was the guitarist for UK stalwarts, Chrome Molly as

well as nwnhm luminaries, Demon. Though he will probably be mostly know for his

decade long stint with Limehouse Lizzy. Tim is an all round accomplished musician and

has recently released his debut album “Read Out Loud” to rave reviews.

DANNY LEE JAMES / GREG DARBY

Guitarists, Danny Lee James & Greg Darby are as close knit a guitar duo as you’ll find.

Complementing each other’s style’s with ease & finesse. From the bluesey early snake

riffs to the all out thunder of latter day snake virtuoso’s Reb Beach, Doug Aldrich & now,

Joel Hoekstra.

Both accomplished guitarists, Greg has extensive touring experience with cult band, King

Rocker, whilst Danny has travelled the world as an original recording artist with

Fahrenheit & also as the guitarist in Dressed To Kill, the world’s longest running kiss

tribute.

DUNCAN COOK

Ivory tinkler & all round gifted musician, Duncan Cook is the band’s glue. Enhancing all

era’s of the snake’s music with his flowing keyboard skills. From the likes of Wine,

Women & Song, to the flowing power of Best Years, Duncan’s keyboard wizardry will

leave snake fans mesmerised.

PAUL THOMPSON

Bass player and the baby of the band. Paul already has a very extensive portfolio of

prestigious shows across Europe to his name as well as numerous recordings with

various recoding artists. Crunching your rib cage with that unmistakable Whitesnake

groove, but the real reason the band bring him along is he’s eye candy for the girls

MATTHEW BLAKOUT

Last but by no mean’s least….Every snake has a tail….& WSUK are extremely proud to

have a ‘tiger’ as its tail. Matt Blakout from legendary Welsh glam rock icons Tigertailz is

the WSUK time keeper.

Visual and exciting to watch, Matt’s experience & resume is even more impressive.

Having played the world over and sharing the stage with the likes of Whitesnake

themselves amongst some other of the biggest names ever in music history, Seeing is

believing….and Matt never fails to deliver !
