The Piggies are able to adapt their show to suit most types of audiences, from a full-scale theatre production to an intimate private party. This sixties tribute band are thoroughly entertaining and if you like the 60’s era, you will absolutely love this highly polished tribute act.

“From the moment that these four talented musicians stepped out of a full-scale replica of Dr. Who’s Tardis, complete with original sound effects, it was clear that this was no ordinary tribute band. Using the word “Ultimate” for any event of this kind may seem risky, but this show certainly delivers the goods – their uncanny impersonations of 1960’s icons such as The Beatles, The Monkees, The Searchers, Gerry and the Pacemakers and The Rolling Stones were nothing short of perfect” – Grand Theatre (Swansea)

“They are a cover band, but a cover band who really become the artistes they are impersonating. Only the most wonderful classic songs were performed during the almost two and a half hour concert. The last half hour of the show the audience were all stood up dancing, screaming, clapping their hands and singing along to the songs. The evening was full of nostalgia and the audience got to re-live many precious old memories” – Park Theatre Orebro (Sweden)

“This was a really excellent show – a slick and impressive production with almost 50 of the best hits of the last century and all played live by four terrific musicians, playing a hometown gig at the peak of their talents” – Grimsby Auditorium

“The great thing about this show though is not just the talent of the performers but the humour that goes with it. They didn’t take themselves too seriously and told us that, just like in the sixties, all instruments on the night were played live. They effortlessly moved from one anthem to another and the costumes they donned were just the thing to add that extra bit of pizzazz. Without a doubt though, the best performance and costume had to come from their version of Mick Jagger. Not only did he have the voice for it, he had the lips and moves as well” – Wyvern Theatre (Swindon)
