The Polis (A Police Tribute) (The Polis)

By | Published on Tuesday 13 August 2019

A four piece trio? The mighty Sting was played by two people here – a bass player and a vocalist. This was a cabaret-type venue, with table service going on throughout, rather than a concert. The Polis were a good live band who gave accurate and skilled performances, rousing the crowd to relive their own teenage years with great enthusiasm! Musically they were excellent; Andy Summers’ guitar parts were note for note and the drummer drove the night along with a vigorous Stewart Copeland impression. The singer was also very convincing, effortlessly hitting all the high notes and involving the crowd. By the time they ended with ‘Roxanne’ the audience were frenzied, but this time Dad wasn’t coming to pick them up!
