THE DEEP PURPLE FAMILY TREE show brings together the perfect combination of Deep Purple, DIO and Whitesnake classics for a true fan of Deep Purple and Ronnie James Dio, Ian Gillan, David Coverdale, Jon Lord, Ian Paice, Cozy Powell, Ritchie Blackmore etc. etc.
Deep Purple are one of the greatest hard rock bands in history. They have been popular worldwide and have influenced many other hard rock and heavy metal bands.
Through the years, Deep Purple has been known for its outstanding in-concert performances, no matter which line-up recorded them. Purple’s live performances have been legendary, and over the years they have released more live recordings than almost any other band.
WHITESNAKE UK produce a fantastic show featuring not only all the usual Whitesnake classics from the Moody/Marsden line-up to the present day USA incarnation.
The Whitesnake UK show not only includes classic songs such as “Fool For Your Loving”, “Is This Love” and “Here I Go Again”, but will try to include something from EACH and EVERY studio album, performed with all the energy, passion and majesty of a Whitesnake live show, we’re sure you’re going to be completely bitten! DIO Trilogy are the UK’s tribute to the music of Ronnie James Dio and as the name suggests their live performances are based on Dio’s career panning three eras from Rainbow, Black Sabbath and Dio but don’t be surprised if we do include material from Elf and Heaven and Hell as well.
Forming a tribute to such a great performer like Ronnie James Dio is no easy task. In addition to his unique and skillful vocal style, Ronnie had played in bands with some of the best and most influential and respected musicians in rock/metal history. The band members of Dio trilogy are a group musicians that are able to play at the highest level to reproduce the sound and with Graham Knight’s showmanship not only do they pay tribute to the music of Ronnie we try to give an audience and experience that will bring back memories of Ronnie’s monumental concert experiences.
PURE PURPLE specialise in the era when Ian Gillan, and Roger Glover joined Ritchie Blackmore, Jon Lord and Ian Paice to form the classic MK 2 line up.
Pure Purple perform their songs with the same infectious energy and passion as Deep Purple did in the 1970’s and go to great lengths to sound as authentic as possible too with Marshal Amps, Hammond Organ, Fender Guitars and Leslie Speakers.
Some of the songs you can expect to hear are MKII classics such as Highway Star, Child In Time, Woman From Tokyo, Smoke on the Water, Black Night, Strange Kind of Woman, Lazy, Speed King, Fireball and from a few years later Perfect Strangers.
Albums from the MK 2 era include ‘In Rock’, ‘Fireball’, ‘Machine Head’, ‘Made in Japan’ and later included ‘Perfect Strangers’ and ‘Hell or High Water’.
