LOVED BY U2 FANS
"I just wanted to say a few words after being totally blown away by the U2Baby performances at the pre and after show parties, at the amazing Church venue in Dublin in November 2018. Over two days, U2Baby’s performances were that good, my girlfriend and I, actually left U2 at the 3Arena early, to ensure we got back in to the Church in time for the band’s finale. We were not disappointed, the Church was rammed, the atmosphere electric. The band were on fire, “Bono" had the crowd eating out of the palm of his hand, at one point, leaving the stage, climbing up on to the bar, raising the Irish tricolor above his head, what a showman. The set list was amazing, both old and new, with some surprises along the way. Attention to detail and their ability in recreating the sound, power and raw emotion of a U2 performance is truly mind blowing. I have been a U2 fan for over 30 years, seeing them 47 times to date, I never thought I would actually leave a U2 concert in Dublin, to go and see a tribute band, but I did. I will never forget the second night in the Church, U2 would have been proud of U2Baby’s performance.”
Terry Want, Norwich, UK
“Seen these guys at The Cavern on 4th April. They are amazing and it is very much like a U2 gig. I’ve been a U2 fan for 30 years and I’ve seen a few tributes but these guys are by far the best I’ve watched. Their set list was marvellous..... old and new mixed together brilliantly. Had a chat with them after the gig and they are
really nice chaps. I’d love to watch Bono and the boys watching these. 10/10”
Howard Arends, Website Review Submission
“These guys are the real deal... play with passion and sound and look like U2. I've seen them twice now. First time I was gobsmacked, second time emotionally! It was a big fan meet up at the Cavern Club in Liverpool and I closed my eyes and thought I was at Wembley again. Amazing band, NOT too be missed! Keep rocking lads.”
Paul “COYB” Roberts, Website Submission
“U2Baby are the ultimate U2 tribute band. Their professionalism is second to none. I’ve seen them several times. Miss them at your peril…”
Aaron Govern, @U2 Tours Staff and U2 Advisor to Record Collector Magazine
“Been at their pre and afterparty in The Church in Dublin on 06-11. If you don't know you'd really say they are U2! The music, gimmicks. it really seemed they just came from the 3Arena to play another concert in The Church.”
Cees Dool, from Facebook Reviews
“Front man really pulled out all the stops for Dublin 2 in the Church. What a showman. Really had to inspect him to check that it wasn’t actually Bono. The sound and the look is identical”
Shannon Breathnach, Dublin, Ireland
“What an absolutely fantastic night ! U2 Baby are amazing ! Thanks guys what a set ! Now .. let’s hope the real thing are as good as you 🎶🙌🏾❤️ xx”
Susan Huggan, Scotland
“U2Baby are the nuts!! These guys look & sound the part. So worth seeing. Amazing guys.“
Deanne Martindill, Facebook Review
“Me and my dad went to the Cavern gig on Friday night and it was the best night ever!! It’s one birthday that I will never forget! To be given a harmonica as a birthday present just topped it off- amazing! 10/10”
Chloe Croft, Facebook Review
“Just wanted to say a few words after seeing U2Baby at The Marrs Bar in Worcester this Saturday....Wow ! What an absolutely incredible show (again) ! We have seen them on a few occasions now, and as avid U2 followers, this tribute band ALWAYS deliver a very special performance. The look and sound of this band are perfect. More over, the feeling that they create is second only to U2 themselves, however with this band, you can get so much closer and more personal !They always recreate that high energy and deep emotion that can only be felt by listening to U2’s live music, and they take you on an epic 2 hour journey which you won’t want to miss ! Go and see this fantastic band !”
Jemma Phipps, Facebook Review
“Amazing show, the closest you can get to a U2 concert, Richard and the band they are easy to approach very nice people - top notch.”
Diego Sabino, London
Much much much better tribute band than I could ever imagine, outstanding live performance in Worcester-Marrs Bar, can't wait to see them again.. Well done!”
Petr Toman, Marrs Bar, Worcester
“The full package. Seen you a few times and it just gets better and better. The look, The sound, The Atmosphere ... Second to none.”
"Man for a second I thought it was U2, the sound, the clothes and the attitude..."
Alf Dunstan Petersen, Norway
"It takes true devotion to sound like that! You guys are incredible! One of the best U2 cover bands I've heard!"
Gigi Gonzales, New York City, USA
"Soaring vocals & quality musicianship combine for an impressive & enjoyable tribute indeed! Eagerly awaiting your US West Coast tour!"
Deborah Perpetua, Washington, USA
"Just watched U2Baby in Aylesbury. What a great set-list, even better than the real thing. Great crowd, great drink and great company. The band? Edge was on fire, and "Bono" was a little pocket dynamo, hit the high notes and did a really beautiful Every Breaking Wave. The drums were tight, the sound mixing was spot on and the whole band seemed to really have a great time. I've seen a few U2 tribute bands over the years and these guys were by far the best, by a long shot. If you get the chance, go see them, I'd go again."
Mark Leddie, posted on Facebook after Shootpool Aylesbury 2017
"So glad we came, we had a brilliant night, my voice has gone this morning! You guys are so talented. Will definitely be seeing you perform again. My David said he felt like he'd just been to an intimate gig with U2 for fifteen quid."
Karen Chisman following Norden Farm Centre for the Arts
"I am the most loyal and longest serving u2 fan ever. I've seen them over 65 times! I know every song, every lyric... I never ever thought you could get a tribute that sounds so much like Bono and the band. Absolutely brilliant :)). Made my day."
Andrea G, Maidenhead, UK
''I've heard of U2Baby long before I actually got to see them live. And I have to say, I was blown away! If you need a little U2 fix, during this withdrawal period, I highly suggest you go see this band. Besides (freakishly!) reminding of U2 in looks, they sound great, too! During the gigs at the Church Pub, they took us back to the Innocence+Experience tour instantly, by playing the well known setlist, as well as some major surprises. The audience responded so well- they seemed to have such easiness to them and they connected with fans immediately. I will definitely go see them the first chance I get!''
Amra (who Bono christend Miss Sarajevo) - who has been on stage multiple times with U2
"Your band is f*&^*@g awesome."
Trish Weedon who has been on stage twice with U2 on the Innocence to Experience tour 2015
"I watched, I listened, I shed a few happy tears, I sang along and danced. At times their performance was so powerful it was like watching the real deal all those years ago. Only two bands have ever caused me to feel such raw powerful emotion. One is U2 & the other is U2Baby. When a performance grabs you heart and soul and causes your emotions to leak uncontrollably from your eyes you know they're damned good!"
Lissy - Worcester
We get flown in to Dublin, the home of U2
"One of Europe's leading U2 tribute bands."
Hotpress - July 2017
“U2Baby performed two magnificent shows for us the weekend U2 played Croke. They are THE U2 tribute that we fly to Ireland for our major events due to their authenticity, professionalism and absolute attention to detail. The guys are easy to work with and we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for the closest tribute to the real thing you can get."
Darren Moore, General Manager, The Church Cafe Bar and Restaurant Dublin
"It was 40 years ago yesterday that I joined my first band, they've done ok over the years (although nothing to give 29 Fingers any cause for concern ha ha). So off I went to Dublin to join in the #U240 celebrations and had to do a double take when I saw the U2 tribute band U2Baby rocking it up in a crowded, hot and sweaty Church Bar by the Liffey. With a few pints of Guinness blurring the edges (no pun intended) I was transported back to '78 and the Dandelion Market Saturday afternoon U2 gigs. If you like U2 go and see this band..."
Ivan McCormick, one of the guys that was in Larry Mullen’s kitchen before U2 became U2
“I thought U2Baby were amazing. I think I prefer them to U2 - and it was much easier to get in!”
Guggi - renowned artist and Bono's best friend since the days of Cedarwood Road
We play festivals, MUSIC VENUES, AND THEATRES
"The U2Baby duo helped us out by standing in at last minute to headline Thrupp Live - they played a blinding one hour set of all the best known U2 songs and looked and sounded just like Bono and the Edge."
Tom Clark . TAD Studios
"I booked U2Baby - a U2 tribute act - for a music & beer festival called Stonesfield Septembeerfest. In short they absolutely nailed it. The crowd loved them. If Bono and Edge had showed up I don't think it would have sounded any better. Brilliant performance guys. Together with Brendan McGreal awesome sound engineering it sounded fantastic out front."
Chris Bartle, Music Organiser, Stonesfield Septembeerfest
"Went to an 80's tribute festival at Ashton-on-Mersey Rugby Club in Sale. U2Baby were fantastic. They made my husband's night by playing his favourite song Bad. U2Baby are the best U2 tribute band we have seen. They all looked and sounded like the real band. Would definitely see them again."
Samantha Ince Visser, at Manchester's 80sFest 2016
""Bono should be worried, as the singer could easily take his job! Favourite memories of the night were New Year's Day and the fact they included two tracks from their first album Boy and explained how they started the band. "We'll shine like stars in the summer night, We'll shine like stars in the winter night, One heart, one hope" at the end of my favourite song 'With Or Without You' and finishing the U2 set with 'Bad'. I also liked the inclusion of snippets of songs like Ruby Tuesday - U2Baby have certainly done their homework. The best U2 tribute band I have seen."
Gill Watts, at Manchester's 80sFest 2016
"Looking for a band to headline a festival is always going to be difficult especially when it is your first but from the very start U2Baby have been nothing less than a joy to work with. So many people came up to me after the gig to say how wonderful they were as a band and more than one said that they felt it was THE real U2 on stage due to the careful attention to detail. I cannot recommend this band highly enough. ”
Gillian Potter-Merrigan, Director, 80sFest 2016
"U2Baby headlined Trib Fest Bahrain 2018 and gave the 5000 strong festival crowd an amazing show that they absolutely loved. The boys really rocked it and the crowd sang along to hit after hit. I've had superb feedback on their set from the attendees. We will 100% be having them back for this and other events in the future."
Owner and Promoter of Trib Fest Bahrain
"What an amazing start to our monthly Tribute Nights. U2Baby rocked, the crowd loved the opportunity to listen to their favourite music all night. 80 tickets sold in advance with a further 70 on the night and they stayed . With two encores what more could a venue ask for, thank you! U2Baby - definitely recommend this band great show xx"
Shoot Music Venue Aylesbury
"There are tribute bands that once you've seen them play you don't want to see another tribute to the original. U2Baby are that kind of tribute. Their technical setup was a breeze, they handled their own monitoring and I mixed Front of House via feeds from their desk. We are looking forward to having U2Baby back at Fat Lil's very soon."
Zac Spink, Music Director, Fat Lil's Live Music and Comedy Venue, Witney
"Chequer Mead prides itself on quality entertainment. When it comes to tribute bands we only book the best in the business. U2Baby fall into that category. With an uncanny portrayal of Bono, both vocally and visually, and backed by an incredible band, U2Baby are a must for any booker, promoter, or U2 fan."
Pete Jenkins, Centre Manager, Chequer Mead Theatre, East Grinstead
AUDIENCE reaction VIDEOS
AND even by SOUND ENGINEERS!
"It was a real pleasure to mix these guys. Using their stand alone system for in ear monitoring, they sent me 6 channels + drums to mix. With no monitoring send needed, FOH was a real pleasure to mix. The technology used by U2Baby made my job real simple. Their hard work and technical know how made for an easy and proficient mix! Well done guys! It was a perfect formula - keep it up!!"
Brendan McGreal, CornishUnderGround
"Loved your band and your technical knowledge and show rig made it a whole lot easier for my sound team. Great working with a bunch of professional musicians who are also nice blokes to boot. See you on the next one mate!"
