Stipe have been around since 1996 and was originally called ‘Driver8' then ‘Stipe'. Formed by Richard Southern, the original line-up gigged mainly in the North of England and Scotland. Over the next few years Richard also fronted Midlands based "Monster" playing many gigs throughout the U.K and Europe . Honing and perfecting Michael Stipe's very individual stage persona.

In 2002, Richard decided it was time for a new version of the band called ‘Stipe'. This line-up debuted on January 1st 2003, and over the next few years built up an enviable reputation as an authentic and entertaining tribute, playing all over the UK with regular visits to Ireland and also Europe including Malta, Italy and Sicily.

In 2014 the lineup was refreshed bringing back some of the original members, along with new talent, to produce the strongest and most authentic sounding REM Tribute.

Kingsley Beat is a new indie songsmith on the scene, imbued with the spirit of Madchester, with a good measure of West London attitude thrown in. Fresh from supporting ex-Inspiral Carpets legend Tom Hingley at the 100 Club, Kingsley Beat is causing quite a stir with his refreshingly unique melodic craft. In cahoots with the Ramshackle Music Collective, Kingsley Beat sings a lyrically skillful repertoire of original modern indie classics.
