Unforgettable Fire, or "UF", was born on New Years Day in 1995 as one of the very first U2 tribute bands to ever perform in America. After over seventeen years of playing in some of the most prestigious venues on the East Coast, UF has formed a reputation among many to be one of the closest experiences to being at an actual live U2 show. The members of UF are also very dedicated fans of U2, and will not settle for anything less than complete authenticity. In addition to performing a very impressive array of U2 material from pre-Boy to the most recent No Line On The Horizon and beyond, the band does everything in their power (from wardrobe to lighting) to recreate the live U2 concert setting for their audiences.
Almost Queen succeeds in blending the vocal layering and studio precision that is a signature of the band with the energy and spectacle of a live stage production. Elaborate lighting, effects and costumes aptly frame the seasoned musicians who step into these very large shoes to effectively render an authentic "Queen experience". The band can boast an unbroken string of sold out theaters from New York to San Diego, while headlining major rock festivals in a number of foreign countries as well as the US. The showmanship on stage is reflected by the extensive resumes of the band members, who have toured with the likes of Thin Lizzy, Dee Snider, and Angel. Lead singer Joseph Russo, is also a veteran of the Broadway stage, and has performed in several Broadway tours throughout the world. He and the other Almost Queen members Steve Leonard, John Cappadona, and Randy Gregg flex all of their musical chops in proudly presenting to you the penultimate live Queen concert.
