Oh No.. NOT again!!!! :aagh:
ALL UB tribs are worthy of respect..... the more the merrier :smokin:

Go see them all, support them, get some UB while the real guys are out of town. It all helps promote the real thang, brings fans together, spreads the word, converts some new blood, pleases the crumblies, keeps music, reggae and UB40 alive, out there in the pubs, clubs, theatres LIVE and kickin'

Johnny 2 Bad and the Rats suffered a lot of problems some time ago because of over zealous fans acting maliciously and slagging off people. It happened on both sides and none of us want it. It's nice to be complimented and to have loyal supporters but NOT at the expense of fellow musicians.
We in J2B have cleared the slate, exposed a malicious element, and made a pact with The Rats to support one another and all other UB tribs. We just want to play the music.... no politics.

"Better, best" etc is purely subjective and personal opinion but just bear in mind the sheer hard graft that is behind running a band and putting on a show. If people think there's big money in it then they are very wrong.. it's done out of respect and love for the music and for the buzz of playing it for people.

So, thanks for the voting everyone, we DO appreciate it BUT we really would ask people to appreciate ALL UB musos for what they do.
ONE LUV!!!!! :friends:

Hi Chocolate
No problem.......... just letting people know that the tribs are all ok together after a LOT of hassle in the past. Polls are great .... as long as they don't start the "crazies" off again!!!! :love:

Yes, at the end of the day, any tribute act is exactly what the title suggests. TRIBUTE :grin:
Tribute to the artists that they love and the music. :grin:

Bunch of musicians doing what they love and do best :grin:
Personally I have only Seen Rats and J2bad.Both do a excellent job,they give pleasure to the crowds that go to see them, and in return I am sure they get immense job satisfaction in what they do.
They probably, at times, come in for some harsh critisism :rolleyes: but then who dont :ooh: :rolleyes:

Long live Tributes :grin: who ever you are, you help us to carry on dancing when we are gig dry :aagh: You bring friends and family together and make the sounds that we love. :grin: :friends: :friends:

I haven't been fortunate enough to see any UB40 tribute bands, however I know they will all be doing their best in honour of the great band that is UB40
