Supported by a special one hour show feom Dog of 2 Head Status Quo Tribute We also have A Superb Tribute to Marc Bolan, Formed in 2004 as JEEPSTER, the Chester and North Wales Based band quickly built a reputation as an authentic, raw and down-to earth tribute to the late Marc Bolan and T.Rex.
A run of electrifying local gigs quickly led to the national tribute circuit and many Marc Bolan conventions. A spot of globetrotting culminated in the band playing with Marc’s son, Rolan Bolan in Greenwich Village, New York City.
Reviews over the years have commended the attention to detail to The REX’s performances, in both sound and vision. The overall atmosphere of The Rex’s live experience comes from the light-hearted stage chemistry between the bandmates, frenetic paced boogie rhythms and authentic guitar and vocal stylings. Don’t expect to see wigs or feather boas, just authentic 70’s clothes, real hair…oh and a touch of glitter!
The band’s miniscule ego, self-awareness and respect for Marc Bolan’s legacy have earned them great acclaim over the years.
