Kazabian – Kasabian (UK)
Kazabian are the Worlds first and only (as far as we know) Tribute to the UK’s Number One Band, the mighty “KASABIAN”.
Since our first gig in March 2010 we have played a host of Clubs, Pubs, Festivals and Universities already, and supported the likes of The Noisettes at Oxford Uni, Olly Murs at Leicester Uni and The Holloways at BugJam Festival 2010.
August 2010 saw us play our biggest gig to date in front of 25,000 at Liverpools Mathew Street Festival.
The band members, 3 Matts, an Alex and a Lee have played in various original bands over the years and saw an opportunity and a definite gap in the market for a Kasabian Tribute, so far nobody else has attempted one, which is not surprising giving the difficulty level being so high. It has to be said Kazabian have certainly set the bar extremely high, not only sounding exactly like them but also looking like Kasabian, and that is no easy task given the complexity of the tunes.
With the boys all being huge Kasabian fans, they spent months of intensive rehearsing to ensure that the live show is as close to the real thing as it can get. Once you seen them live you’ll realise what an awesome achievement it really is.
The rise and hype about Kazabian has been massive since they exploded onto the Tribute scene back in March 2010.
They have played a host of Clubs, Pubs, Festivals and Universities already, and supported the likes of The Noisettes at Oxford Uni, Olly Murs at Leicester Uni and The Holloways at BugJam Festival 2010. They have also recently headlined their 1st Tribute Festival in Maryport.
August 2010 – Along with their 1st venture to Northern Ireland, Kazabian are playing the biggest tribute festival in Europe, TribFest and are also playing Matthew Street Festival to a 30,000 strong crowd in Liverpool on the August Bank Holiday.
Kazabian got a mention from Tom Meighan (Kasabians Front Man) in Julys issue of Q Magazine, who moaned thatof Kazabian had more gigs than the actual band – it is believe that Kasabian are very happy to have a tribute band.
The future looks very bright for this tribute band, who play all the singles and more from the 3 studio albums – Kasabian, Empire and West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum – a 4th album is on the way which the lads will get straight onto.
Tracks include massive hits – ClubFoot, Underdog, Shoot The Runner, LSF, Empire, Where Did All The Love Go, Vlad The Impaler and Fire
Described as “as good as the real thing” by many punters, in fact so good that many have been bewildered and confused thinking they are the real thing – they have clearly nailed the sound and feel of a live Kasabian show.
Kazabian are very proud to be doing what they are doing and have never let the crowds down with stunning performance across the country.
Get loose and do not miss out if you ever get the chance to see KAZABIAN…these guys are on Fire….and it’s only the beginning.
‘Only a handful of Tributes in this Country can actually claim to be like the real thing…
Kazabian are one of them…’ JAMES BECK, KU BAR
