SHADES OF PURPLE
SHADES OF PURPLE – The Deep Purple Tribute Band
As the first real Swiss DEEP PURPLE tribute band, SHADES OF PURPLE have been conquering concert venues at home and abroad since 2008. No matter on which stage the guys celebrate their sweaty tribute set, they leave behind an enthusiastic and happy audience!
Just like the original, the line-up of the driving five-piece from the greater Basel region is made up of passionate musicians who musically follow the great role model in a very authentic way during their shows. This is because, in addition to the fantastic musicality, the band places strong emphasis on using original instruments and amplifiers from the glorious days of the 60s and 70s. For example, the legendary, screaming Hammond B3 (this 200 kg piece is taken to every show without exception!), the Ludwig drum set in Silver Sparkling, Rickenbacker basses and of course the Fender Stratocaster Ritchie Blackmore Signature. It doesn't get more authentic than this!
Do you want to experience the feeling of that time again, the time when rock music was still young, unspent and wild? Then a SHADES OF PURPLE show is a "MUST" for you. In unprecedented musical authenticity, the five exceptional musicians bring blockbusters like "Smoke On The Water", "Black Night", "Child In Time", "Woman From Tokyo" or even breakers like "Burn", "A Gypsy's Kiss", "Speed King" and "Highway Star", just to name a few. But also the one or other lesser-known B-sides from the Deep Purple universe from 1967 to 1984 regularly find their way into the setlist of SHADES OF PURPLE. And so even fans who are very familiar with the set of the original get their money's worth and always discover the one or other lesser known song pearl.
DEEP PURPLE at it's very best has a name: SHADES OF PURPLE! - Don't miss it!
