deep purple tribute bands

The Purple Project
The Purple Project
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.

"No 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!"
