The Kinks Experience

About The Kinks Experience

Made up from members of bands previously promoting original material, The Kinks Experience came together in June of 2015 in Glasgow.

Founder members bass player and life-long Kinks fan Alan Drover (ex Skelter) and guitarist Peter McClurg (ex The Rhymes and Skelter) had considered the idea for literally years but the right line-up was elusive.

The main challenge was getting the right Ray Davies. When it did happen it happened fast. Peter met Rikki McKay (ex Blackberry Jack and Kinks fan) and a plan was hatched to rehearse 3 songs at Berkeley Studios in mid-June and what was originally an ‘experiment’ was arranged.

That first rehearsal was so successful and the chemistry so explosive that the band were playing their debut sell-out show in Ayr that August as The Kinks Experience.

Drummer Tommy Clark (The Seventh Sons, The Standards) and keyboard player Arnie Burgoyne (Echo and the Bunnymen) completed the line-up and the band have gone on to become one of the most musically and visually accurate Kinks tribute acts in the country.

Playing authentic guitars, keys and amps to carefully keep the sound vintage, the band have worked hard on all the original arrangements of the songs - and they are all there from You Really Got Me and Dead End Street to Waterloo Sunset and Lola.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Kinks Experience are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
