WHO ARE WE?

The Name Is Band – Bond Tribute Band is a 10-piece James Bond Tribute Band from the UK available for any event anywhere in the world.

WESTON COLLEGE UNIVERSITY CAMPUS

The first four videos above:  Live & Let Die, Skyfall, From Russia With Love and The Man With The Golden Gun were recorded and filmed at Weston College.  The students of the Music Department at Weston College University Campus who were studying for their Music & Production FDA Course, invited our James Bond Tribute Band to come and record the Bond themes.  The students had not had an opportunity to record such a large band – and never one with a brass section.  So we said YES PLEASE!

So, we all spent a morning in the recording studio with the students and recorded  6 audio tracks: Diamonds Are Forever, Thunderball, Live and  Let Die, Skyfall, From Russia With Love and The Man With the Golden Gun.  Click on this link and you’ll be taken to our recordings so you can listen to them.

DO YOU EXPECT ME TO TALK MR BAND?

The recording students did such a good job that the filming department students also wanted to join in!  So we were invited back to film the band.  The first four videos were recorded in one morning again at the college.  Please note that, although we are actually playing the music in the studio for these videos – the audio has since been replaced with our live recording from the studio that we did a couple of weeks before. It was a little bit like a scene from a Bond Film with a Hollywood production process…. James Bond: “Do you expect me to talk?” Auric Goldfinger: “No Band… I expect you to mime!” The final result could have been Directed by Sam Mendes himself!

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE TEAM!

Please be assured however, that we DO actually sound like this when we perform at events and we DO actually set up the stage and look like this at all our events.  We ONLY ever perform totally 100% LIVE at every event and there are no backing tracks used in any of our performances – just 10 talented individuals who all work as a team to ensure the end result is spot on.

The other videos that feature on this page are all 100% live with no studio work or tweaking – they were recorded at a private event via a small recording device in the corner of the room so the sound quality isn’t the best but they give you an idea of how we look/sound.

HUGE THANKS GO TO:

Huge thanks therefore go to Tony Hobden, Audio Producer and Video Director who was also ably assisted by students Matt Gray and Tarrant Sheppard on Engineering and Production.  Matt Mcleod was our student photographer for the process and Vicky Gray was the make-up guru for our very own Bond Musicians.  Many thanks to Paul Raymond for arranging the time and facilities for the students and The Name Is Band – Bond Tribute Band  to do the recordings in such a great space! Thanks also to Hannah Marie Rimes and Cassie Louise on hair and make-up, loan of earrings and faux fur stole!  Also Carla Dakin as our Bond dancer and Jess & Dan Cox for support and encouragement!  We’d also like to thank Rob Taylor from Taylors Photographic for coming to our rescue with blurring out some of the videos.
