It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce that John (our Dave Grohl and good mate) is going to leave the band next year due to a change in personal circumstances. He is going to see out all of our existing gigs that are in the diary, so if you have already booked us, then please do not worry, we will still be doing the show.
However this is going to leave a big Dave-Grohl-shaped hole in our band that is going to need filling. We're sure there is someone out there who can fill John's boots. The full text of the official advert can be found below.
PLEASE SHARE THE HECK OUT OF THIS AND HELP US FIND A NEW DAVE GROHL!!!!
Established Foo Fighters Tribute seeking new Dave Grohl. Gigs already guaranteed for 2017.
The Food Fighterz are arguably the most authentic sounding Foo Fighters tribute band in the UK. We have been going since 2011 and have clocked up nearly 100 gigs in that time, establishing ourselves as one of the top tribute bands in the country, putting out a very authentic, high energy show. We’re not full-timers but we are very professional. We don’t take ourselves too seriously but we do take the music very seriously. We’re out to give people an authentic Foo Fighters experience. We are normal blokes, with day jobs and families, who do this at weekends for the love of the music. We regularly sell out top tribute venues like, the Roadhouse, Realtime Live, The Musician and The Sanctuary.
Our existing Dave Grohl is brilliant and we’re really gutted that he’s leaving (due to personal reasons) but we are sure that there is someone else out there that can fill his boots. If you think that someone is you and you want to play some really decent gigs and earn some pretty good money then give us call.
The ideal candidate will be based in the Midlands and must have own transport but we will look further afield for the right candidate.
We understand that finding some who looks like Dave and sounds like Dave and plays the guitar is a tough ask. The most important part is the voice. Looking the part would be good too (using wig if necessary). Your guitar playing doesn’t have to be to a high standard (as we have 2 other guitarists to fill the sound), so if you can pose with the guitar and play a few power chords in the choruses, then that will suffice.
We are looking for someone who is reliable, has their own transport, is willing to invest in gear to look the part, is down to earth, can do the Dave Grohl thing (without actually thinking he’s Dave Grohl) and is willing to chip in and help secure gigs in new venues.
