Band Biography
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. During this time the band's web site became the most popular on search engines Google and MSN and the vast majority of venues - from small clubs to huge festivals - have made regular return bookings.

The band draw on much experience of live music and the performing arts and in performance make this music their own.  An early R.E.M. album loaned to Stipe’s frontman, worked its magic and convinced him to make a first visit to see R.E.M. live, ‘That was the best live performance, ever,’ says Rick.

The Fans
R.E.M. fans say really great things about Stipe. Here are some quotes taken from pages which can be accessed via the Reviews section of the band website.

Arguably better than the live performance by REM themselves(dare I say that?)

My advice to you – If you hear Stipe are playing a gig near you then drop everything and go and see them.

Stipe's outstanding performance of R.E.M. music is second to none not to be missed

“Where this band succeeds is in the accuracy of the sound ... the lead singer's voice is a fairly uncanny likeness of Michael Stipe’s … a brilliant rendition of the songs, fully convincing and delivered with confidence.” - Platinum Al

The Future

Stipe have over sixty R.E.M songs in their repertoire. The list is continuing to grow. Just like R.E.M this enables the band to change their set considerably and keeps everything sounding fresh.

There are many tribute bands that claim to be the ultimate or the U.K’s No.1.

Stipe take this to another level; off-stage down-to-earth and approachable - on-stage enthusiasm and energy make compelling viewing maintaining the essence that is R.E.M.

Stipe ARE the definitive R.E.M. tribute!

booked Stipe for their event

“We have seen Stipe numerous times over the past year, Alexander’s is a venue they play regularly, but this occasion was unusual being a Sunday rather than a Thursday night slot. Although they have always put on an excellent performance, this was possibly the best we have seen yet - so it was worth the late night, even though I had to get up for work on Monday morning. Of course Stipe are now also TV celebrities, having recently appeared on BBC1’s “The One Show” performing “It’s the End of The World As We Know It” in front of Michael Stipe. Maybe the extra boost from Michael’s endorsement has made a difference! Rick (vocals) was looking particularly smart, in his suit and Michael Stipe-style striped shirt & tie. The set got off to a rousing start with “Living Well Is The Best Revenge”. It was the first time I had heard them play this opener from the current album “Accelerate”, and they certainly delivered the energy that really is essential for this song. During the fir...”
