The band have brought their glam rock party to venues across the country sharing stages with rock ’n’ roll legends Status Quo and Stiff Little Fingers and even on one occasion supported a Barney the Dinosaur puppet show.

The band have rocked every venue with a setlist born from the sounds of the 1970’s. T-Rex, Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars, Slade, Sweet, Mud, Bowie, ABBA, Rod Stewart the one where Video Killed the Radio Star and the Spirit in the Sky, Neil Diamond, and many other unexpected surprises all get the Alvin Purple Experience Glam Rock treatment.
