Founded in 2018, The Straits UK are made up of five musicians all with a passion for delivering quality music and performance every time. Residing in Newcastle, the idea to form a tribute to Dire Straits originated with the front-man and drummer, who happen to be father and son. They have both been lifelong Dire Straits fans, meaning attention to detail is second to none.
Performing all the hits from The Dire Straits back catalogue, with authenticity that has been likened to ‘listening to the real thing’ by many. Come with us to experience and re-live the unmistakable guitar and keyboard sounds of the Alchemy, Wembley ’85, On Every Street tours and much more! In fact, close your eyes and you'd be forgiven for thinking it was Knopfler himself playing. A must for all Dire Straits fans!
