Indie-rock fans will be presented with a treat tomorrow evening (Friday) when one of the UK’s top Stone Roses tribute acts takes to the Banbury stage.
The Total Stone Roses are due to perform a gig at The Mill Arts Centre at 8pm, playing a 90 minute set that features some of the best Roses material.
It will include a number of memorable classics such as She Bangs the Drums, Fool’s Gold and Waterfall.
Other popular hits that are set to feature on the playlist include I Wanna Be Adored and Love Spreads.
The Total Stone Roses comprise four professional musicians who graduated from the prestigious Leeds College of Music, learning and perfecting their craft over a number of years.
All four members are in their early to mid twenties and aim to bring the same passion and youthful charisma that the original band were renowned for back in their prime.
This youthful drive is what took The Stone Roses to their heady heights of fame in the late 1980s and early 1990s, making them stand out from the rest of the music scene.
The release of their self-titled debut album amounted to the group’s breakthrough success in 1989, gathering critical acclaim on an international level.
They disbanded in the mid 1990s following a number of changes to their line up but announced plans to reform in 2011 and have been doing gigs ever since.
With interest revived in the original band following their reunion, the last year has seen Total Stone Roses perform gigs across the UK, building a solid fan base that has made them a force to be reckoned with on the tribute scene.
Above all else, they strive to resemble the sound of the original Stone Roses and are meticulous in recreating their material for these live performances.
The Total Stone Roses will appear at The Mill Arts Centre on Friday, July 3 with music starting from 8pm.
The gig is fully standing and suitable for anyone over the age of 14.
Tickets cost £15.50 each. To book, or for further information, go to www.themillartscentre.co.uk or call 01295 279002.
