The Rock City archives: 2014

UK Foo Fighters, Rock City Basement

  • Saturday 15th November 2014

When Jay formed this tribute act in 2006 he never dreamed he would be paying

homage to what would become one of rock’s legendary bands.

Foo Fighters (Dave Grohl’s band) played 2 sell out shows back in 2008 at Wembley

stadium in the United Kingdom, since then Jay has watched them tour the globe

collecting multiple awards along the way.

At every turn Jay has not only questioned the point/purpose of his tribute band but particularly,

his own ability to emulate a front man with as much charisma and energy on stage

as Dave Grohl.  What truly drives his passion today is the music and performing live.

That coupled with the overwhelming feedback he receives following every performance,

that surprises even him.  Oh…. and to help spread some live Foo around the planet of course

(even though Dave and the guys have that well and truly covered already).

Jay and the rest of his UK Foo Fighters (Arron, Alex & Jamie) have performed at

numerous festivals, corporate events, weddings, private parties and even ‘Garage Tour’

stops (just like the Foos) across the UK and Europe, sharing bills with acts such as

Feeder and BBC Radio One DJ - Zane Lowe.
