Britpop Tribute are a Welsh tribute band, formed in Barry in 2015. The group consists of singer/keyboardist Duncan Creasey, guitarist/singer Alex Everitt, bassist Jay Fraser, and drummer Bleddyn Howells. Their debut gig was at the West End Club in Barry in December 2015 where the band were surprisingly given the duty of headlining the bill.
What is Britpop? During the 90's, a huge wave of new bands came to the forfront of popular music with an anti-Americanism look (Elastica and Blur particularly). It was said to be the second coming of the mod culture. A guitar pop music movement which changed British music forever. This surge of music, fashion, and attitude, was given a name by the press... Britpop
Britpop was described as the 'second coming' of the mod scene, particularly as Paul Weller returned to the music scene as a solo artist with a completely new sound, one that matched all the other bands coming out of Britain at the time. Another sub-genre of Britpop is Hi-Fi. So if you put the two together...
Our first headline gig came in February 2016 at The Buck in Barry. Following the gig came the departure of the band's first bassist Harley Worthy, his replacement; Matt Blumberg. Matt's stint in the band was however short lived due to his other commitments. However, Matt did 3 gigs with the band in March 2016 at The Plaz in Bargoed, Meze Lounge in Newport, and The Bunker in Cardiff.
Our next recruitment became Jay Fraser who brings crisp groove and incredible talent to the band's rhythm section. But, loss of members does not end there. Original drummer Joshua Sinclair departed the band due to his work commitments. Josh's last gig as the drummer was at Cadstock Music Festival in Barry in July 2016. Josh was soon replaced by ex Monophonics (Stereophonics Tribute) drummer; Bleddyn Howells.
It was at this point towards the end of 2016 that the band turned themselves around. It became a show, rather than a gig. People were coming for not just a singalong, or a dance, they came to see a production. The history of Britpop and recreation of the Oasis vs Blur battle

Ystard Rhondda Rugby Club: "Absolutely fantastic band, I had the pleasure of putting them on in Ystrad Rhondda Rugby Club last year. It was a great night, and they went down a storm with the enthusiastic crowd. I can thoroughly recommend these to any Pub/Club/Venue wanting a night of mostly 90's tunes."
