Formed in Liverpool in Spring 2005.
This band needed to happen!
Not only does Gary possess a passing resemblance to the man Gillan himself his amazing vocal acrobatics certainly brings the Gillan stage persona thundering to life!
Gary has been performing classic rock around the venues of Liverpool and Wirral for many years and this experience on the boards shines through.
Ian Bamford's virtuosity on guitar superbly compliments that of Speed King Ritchie Blackmore.
Ian's faithful reproduction of Mr. Blackmore's twiddly bits is indeed a marvel to behold.
Like Gary Ian has been performing in local bands for years and toured Europe extensively with Frank Zappa tribute The Muffin Men.
On bass is the inimitable Keith Mulholland whose bass playing is second to none.
Now, if you are a true Deep Purple "anorak" Keith should be familiar to you. Keith was the bass player with Garth Rocket and the Moonshiners, Ian Gillan's alter ego in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Keith toured and recorded with Gillan and is still in touch with him.
So you never know who might turn up at a Cheap Purple gig!
On keyboards is our very own Jon Lord, Dave Goldberg. Apart from working with Cheap Purple he has been seen knocking out the odd tune or two in his excellent Fleetwood Mac tribute 'Rumours Of Fleetwood Mac'. he is also a member of " Liverpool Express" and the Merseybeats, However in Cheap Purple tickling the ivories Jon Lord style is the order of the day and, as in the tradition of Mr. Lord, Dave certainly keeps those ivories smiling!
Last but by no means least is our stalwart powerhouse of thunder, the amazing Adam Goldberg. Adam has been teaching drum kits a lesson for longer than he cares to remember.
Adam is in high demand on the local and national scene and is currently working with the very brilliant Xander and the Peace Pirates.
Cheap Purple has managed brilliantly to recreate the sound and feel of an original Deep Purple show, and has even had Ian Paice play drums with them, The power and energy blasts from the stage, transporting the audience back to the heady days of the 1970s when British Rock - true classic rock - ruled the World.
This band is a truly must see experience.
We don't currently have any future gigs listed for Cheap Purple.
