Dark Horses Classic Rock Experience are specialists in live classic rock covers, regularly gigging in the West Midlands, Warwickshire and beyond. This group of musicians are dedicated to recreating the powerhouse sound of the heady days of classic rock. Fronted by an amazingly talented vocalist, the band deliver a performance that will transport you back to that golden era  of music, in an acknowledgement to the talented artists that provided the soundtrack to many people’s lives.

It’s often said if you can remember the sixties, you weren’t really there - so now is the time to catch up with the psychedelic era without the aid of drugs - and enjoy early seventies rock without having to wear loon pants, light joss sticks and drink awful red barrel bitter - unless you really want to of course.
These days some people would have you believe that the music of that age was infused with glitter, glam rock and disco - totally  ignoring the fact that there was a whole ‘underground’ movement of creative artists catering for the non singles buying public. In fact, many bands eschewed the commercial pop charts entirely, and their music was only available in album form, where their creativity could be fully explored. This is the era that Dark Horses seek to recreate, and revive as live, exiting music once again. Whether you were around to experience these classic bands in their pomp, or are hearing these songs for the first time, Dark Horses perform them with a conviction and verve that comes from a love of this most inspiring of musical periods.


REVISITING THE FORMATIVE YEARS OF CLASSIC ROCK

It’s become a regular occurance recently that yet another famous name from the world of rock has gone to play that last “great gig in the sky”, leaving many fans with a tinge of regret that they never got the opportunity to see them live. Lemmy, David Bowie, Freddie Mercury and many more have now joined the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Keith Moon, having first made their indelible mark on the world of rock music.

They may be gone, but they certainly are not forgotten, as Dark Horses pay homage to the icons of classic rock.

Are Dark Horses a tribute band? Well, maybe, but it seems very restricting to only feature one artist, when there are a wealth of influential acts to enjoy - Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Pink Floyd, Mott the Hoople, Free, AC/DC, Deep Purple and many, many more. It’s like a mini mega festival compressed into two hours, minus the stench of the porta-loos.

Dark Horses are five very experienced musicians, with thousand’s of gigging hours under their belts, who came together with the sole intention of breathing new life into these classic songs. David provides powerful main vocals - and authentic sounding guitar, bass, keys and drums from Sam, Andrej, Neil and Lewis complete the line-up. Full pa and lighting are included ... providing the audience with a musical  trip into a bygone era that’s just itching to spring back to life.
