WhitefakeWhitefake are a Whitesnake tribute supergroup side project type thingymebob hailing from the North West of England.
The project was drunkenly agreed on the 21st Dec 2012 and officially born on the 27th Dec 2012.
The band consist of 3 highly accomplished and experienced musicians...and Scott lol.
First off, we have Mark C. An amazing singer with the vocal range that will blow yer mind. And can play a mean axe too. Mark has been fronting bands in the North West for years. (Anthem, N.I.B, D.O.A, Marauder)
Then we have Mark M on guitar. Another North West gigging veteran who has played with the likes of Renegade and Marauder.
On Bass, we have Woody. A fantastic bass player and probably the most accomplished musician of the band. Woody has played in Steelfield and Marauder.
Then we have the big ginger plum on the drums Scott, who has sidestepped his explorer guitars and front man duties from Metalleeka and decided to get back behind the drum kit after a 4 year absence from twatting stuff lol. Scott has played in Without Reason, Steelfield.
On the keyboards we have the extremely talented Ian Starship Entersynths Sharrock, who plays with every other band in the known universe hehe.
On stunt guitar we have the speed merchant himself, the awesome Paul McGill of Sabre
So there you go. A most excellent and experienced lineup who will at best give you a storming evening of Whitesnake classics, most of which are about shagging lets be honest, and at worst, will give you a bloody good laugh and a great evening of entertainment.
