purple tribute bands
|The Purple Project [UK]
UK-based classic rock act ‘The Purple Project’ continue their mission to keep classic Deep Purple alive with an up-coming show at the West County’s renowned ‘Wharf’ venue in Tavistock, Devon, on Saturday 26th November 2011.
Over the years the band has built a solid reputation for delivering blistering shows to audiences in the UK and Europe – including appearances at the Harley Davidson Bike Festivals in Faaker See, Austria, and St Tropez, France. The band was also engaged to play for an unofficial after-show party in Cork, Ireland, when Deep Purple played in the town last year. Band members have appeared on stage and worked with Doogie White, Nick Simper, Bernie Marsden and Micky Moody.
The Purple Project's two-hour show covers material from Deep Purple's extensive album back-catalogue, including live favourites as well as a few classic tracks not so often heard live in concert, such as 'Stormbringer' and 'Perfect Strangers'.
The Purple Project are playing at The Wharf, Tavistock, on Saturday 26th November. Tickets: £10 in advance or £12 after 6pm on the night.
Demon's Eye (Germany)
Deep Purple tribute band Demon's Eye have recorded an album with Doogie White on vocals. THE
STRANGER WITHIN will be released on the 18th of March, 2011. The band have also lined up six German dates with Doogie for April 2011.Demon's Eye have previously played shows with both Jon Lord and Ian Paice.

Axe Attack [UK]
Neil Priddey of the former tribute band Deepest Purple has got a new
covers band going called Axe Attack. The do the whole gammut of 70s and 80s rock, including amongst their material tracks by Deep Purple,
Gillan, Rainbow and Whitesnake. Rather than a web site they have a
blog going, keeping people up to date.
Extra house-points for the great pastiche of those K-tel covers albums for their new poster design!
fan of Deep Purple leaves our gigs disappointed! We take great
pride in faithfully reproduced every facet of Deep Purple's
music and performance, and then some. We concentrate on the
classic age of DP (70-75). There are a whole bunch of live
videoclips on our website that are relatively quick to download
and really speak for themselves!"
