The Counterfeit Police are a stunning live tribute to The Police, one of the definitive rock bands of the 70's and 80's. At the height of their career they were one of the biggest bands in the world, had a string of massive worldwide hits and became global superstars. In 1982 The Police received the Brit Award for Best Group in the UK, whilst in the US they were ranked the #1 most played band on American radio in the 1980's.
The Counterfeit Police capture all the energy and excitement of a Police gig, with fabulous songs, a great front-man, superb musicianship and lots of audience involvement. They perform all the hits including Roxanne, Every Breath You Take, Message In A Bottle, Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic, Don't Stand So Close To Me, Walking On The Moon, De Do Do Do De Da Da Da, So Lonely, Spirits In The Material World, Can't Stand Losing You, Invisible Sun, Wrapped Around Your Finger as well as many other classic Police songs.
The Counterfeit Police have established themselves in the top league of Tribute Bands in the world. They have performed all over the UK and abroad at a wide range of private and corporate functions, as well as in theatres, festivals and music venues. The show includes costume changes and can come complete with an amazing 10K PA rig and lighting. The band can perform for anything from a few songs up to a full two hour set.
The Counterfeit Police have been together for just over 10 years. They were formed by Paul Metcalfe in 1999 when he finally gave in to the pressure from friends and fellow musicians who kept commenting on his vocal and physical similarities to Sting and how he should form a Police Tribute Band! The band all grew up listening to The Police and to be able to go out there and do it, and do it well, gives them a great buzz.
