SHOW INFORMATION

OUR STORY

“I was 10 years old and in the car with my Godfather (Mike Cowley), he had the Purple Rain album on…I got about 30 seconds into ‘Let’s Go Crazy’ and my young mind was already blown! So I washed neighbour’s cars and mowed the lawn for the next few weeks until I had saved up the £10 I needed to go buy my own copy on vinyl…my first album! By this point I was hooked, all through my teenage years Prince’s music was a constant source of inspiration and along with my Godfather (again!) was the reason I wanted to play the guitar!

The band started about 14 years ago as the result of a bet with an old friend of mine who ran a music venue after he heard us jamming Purple Rain one night…since then it’s been a passion project, a group of friends who are all Purple Family and love playing his music together.

Since April 2016, the band has taken on even more meaning..it is a celebration of the music of, (in my opinion), the greatest contemporary music artist the world will ever see. And most of all, a thank U to my hero for all the wonderful gifts he left us. 💜”
