We are Fleetingwood Mac, a young and exciting new tribute to the legendary band Fleetwood Mac.
We didn’t just want to be a another tribute band, with tacky wigs and fancy dress outfits. Instead, we wanted to bring across the live sound of Fleetwood Mac, with just one guitar, a keyboard, a drum kit, a man on the bass and of course, the vocals!
As much as we aim to create a genuine Fleetwood Mac sound, we can’t help but give it a modern edge, it’s just the way we play. How else are five people supposed to play tribute to a band that have lasted nearly 50 years?
A band who have over time have featured eight different Guitarists & Vocalists.
A band that tour arenas all over the world, with six extra touring musicians.
A band that started out as part of the sixties British Blues Invasion and ended up as one of the biggest mainstream groups of the eighties.
Let’s not even get into the scandals, relationships and excesses……
We work hard in rehearsals to get the details just right and do justice to some classic songs that play a huge part in many peoples lives. We also want to introduce the songs to a new generation of Fleetwood Mac fans, who just like ourselves, weren’t even born when the band were in their prime. We do not go on stage pretending to be Fleetwood Mac, instead we go on as what we are…five young musicians who love the music, and want to share that music to a wider audience.
Our first show was in March 2015 which was to a sell out crowd at the legendary venue the Cellars at Eastney. Over the summer we have played many shows, each one bringing us together and developing our sound. Portsmouth Summer show and playing a packed tent at Victorious Festival were two of the highlights.
We have just played a successful sell out show at the Portsmouth Wedgwood Rooms, and we’re now looking forward getting out and about to audiences in 2016.
Below are some of the songs you can expect to hear:
Go Your Own Way
Sisters of the Moon
I’m so Afraid

Never Going Back Again
