The abundant energy and the excellence and musicality of their performance makes Money For Nothing a “must see” for any rock enthusiast or Dire Straits fan. The line-up features top-class and experienced musicians that make this band a worthy tribute to Dire Straits.

What an amazing show. Thank you to all the band but also the fans. The feedback has been amazing and we can’t wait to have you back.” – Playhouse Whitley Bay “What a truly amazing performance, thank you so much guys for the effort you put into it all to make it a night to remember indeed. Please do come back soon, lots of friends up here who want to see and hear you again. Thanks also to all the staff at Whitley Bay Playhouse for being such splendid hosts once again.” – Phil K “Absolutely fantastic show at The Tivoli. Just flawless.” – Andre B
