TOTALLY BLONDIE are said to be the most authentic Blondie tribute around – a claim Chichester audiences can judge for themselves.
Lead singer Aurora, only child of drummer Daniel Colson and his wife Jacqueline, developed her passion for music while growing up in Nancy, France.
For four years, Aurora was lead singer of Wild Willy Barrett’s French Connection, an original quartet featuring a mélange of French, Irish and English acoustic arrangements but, despite her acoustic and jazz background, Aurora always wanted to front a rock band; and performing in a Blondie tribute band has always been in the back of her mind.
She said: “For years, people have stopped me in the street to tell me how much I look like Debbie Harry. During a recent concert, someone in the audience even shouted out ‘Debbie Harry 1977′ when I came on stage.”
Thanks to the versatility of her vocals, her confident stage presence, and her natural Debbie Harry looks, Aurora and the band give audiences the “Totally Blondie” experience.
Blondie were one of the most iconic bands of the seventies and eighties with Debbie Harry’s posters adorning most teenagers’ walls. Totally Blondie perform all the classic hits such as Hanging On The Telephone, Sunday Girl, One Way or Another and Atomic, plus some of the finest album tracks.
Tickets are £10 in advance or £12 on the door.
