London Calling

It’s their very first appearance at Tribfest, and we’re pleased to announce, Black Market Clash, a tribute to The Clash will be performing in the VIP Big Top at Tribfest 2016.
 
Black Market Clash were formed in late 2014, by four time served musicians who all share a mutual love for the original music of The Clash.
 
They have a strong, energetic performance on stage which remains faithful to the original spirit of The Clash, but also manages to be refreshingly different.
 
The band consists of Steve Marriott on vocals and rhythm guitar, Charlie Perkins on drums, Dave W on lead guitar, and Vicky Fitz playing bass.
 
They’ll be playing all The Clash classics, so get ready to sing along to anthems such as ‘London Calling’, ‘Should I Stay or Should I Go’, and ‘I Fought The Law’.
