James Bond Party

Posted in: News | No Comments | Posted on by Moneypenny

If you are looking for a classy, suave and sophisticated James Bond Tribute Band for your James Bond Party then you are stopping on the right web page as The Name Is Band…Bond Tribute Band are a fantastic James Bond Tribute Band.  We travel anywhere in the UK and abroad and only play 100% live.

If you were watching television in 2016 you would have seen the Banksy “art” display at The Tropicana in Weston Super Mare.  On the 19th August 2017 we were booked to perform at this iconic venue.  After the Banksy art installation the local council are seizing the opportunity and slowly building the Tropicana into an events space.  Part of this internal space is now The Reaper Bar, receiving much investment from a local promoter to get things started and build the space into a live music venue.

Mark Whitehouse saw The Name Is Band perform in Bristol in October 2016 and asked us to play for a James Bond themed event at The Reaper Bar in August 2017 and we were delighted to be asked.

Mark isn’t your normal promoter either it seems.  In preparation for this event he created an online video teaser as promotion which involved spending a few hours on the beach as the sun was setting with fast cars, a Bond look-a-like, some henchmen and a few fake guns.  What his team produced was a trailer for our band to firstly promote the event and, on the night of the event, act as an introduction with the full film shown.

This ended up with a fight scene and our female vocalist acting as a Pussy Galore style turncoat who shot the henchmen instead of Bond and was then escorted off-stage whilst The Name Is Band launched into their cover version of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.

The promoter also spent hours collating film images which he cut and paste into a projection for the rear of the stage to be played whilst the band performed.

If you would like to see the 100% live videos then please follow this link:

To see the next instalment of the video you will need to keep checking back on our webpage as the band will be appearing very shortly in their own screening of The Name Is Band… Bond Tribute Band epic film! Watch this space!
