True Gold began life way back in 2005, when founding member Lee James put an advert out for musicians, which would form into a Spandau Ballet tribute band known as Highly Strung.
The band split in 2010, only to reform after many requests to do so, under the new name of True Gold 'The Spandau Ballet Experience'. The band is now sounding, and looking better than ever! Having performed in 100's of venues over the years, they have courted much praise from renowned artists.
True Gold are the 'official' Spandau Ballet tribute band having received praise from none other than Spandau's very own Gary Kemp, Steve Norman & Tony Hadley! True Gold have performed twice with Tony,
the second time coming in 2014 when Lee & Tony sang together on BBC's The One Show.
As Gary Kemp once said after seeing a photo of True Gold performing "Double Take! Is that Tony up there???"
These guys are brilliant. I had to double take to see if it was Tony (Hadley) or not! - Gary Kemp Superb show! charismatic performance, witty exchanges and splendid musicianship throughout, not a note out of place. Could have been the real thing! 5***** (Steve Chinn, The Artrix Theatre, Bromsgrove)
Fronted by Lee James, a man whose intensely powerful voice is uncannily similar to Tony Hadley’s dulcet tones. Outclassing other tribute bands with an authentic delivery and outstanding performance. (Sarah Lewis - Radio DJ and 80’s nostalgia writer)
These guys have the look, the voice, everything! We’ve just seen them at Butlins (Bognor Regis) Absolute 80’s Weekend, and they made our night! (Gavin Reeman - Butlins (Bognor Regis)
