Fleetwood Mac Tribute Band - The Chain

Fleetwood Mac Tribute Band - The Chain
by Vee (Mystic Rock Boutique)

Wait a minute baby,
Stay with me awhile...
Said you'd give me light
But you never told me about the fire.

Drownin', in the sea of love
Where everyone would love to drown.

Lyrics: Sara - Fleetwood Mac

I just discovered this tribute band from Pittsburg, PA 'The Chain'& If you love Fleetwood Mac you're going to be delighted with The Chain. I'm a big fan of good music like Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Pink Floyd to name a few of my favorite bands. Fleetwood Mac was a band that had great popular songs on the radio that I liked & considered by most people as a great band with great musicians. This band 'The Chain' does Fleetwood Mac justice. The vocals are superb and the musicians do an excellent job covering the songs pretty much spot on. I'm really impressed with Kimmy (Stevie Nicks), her vocals are so close to the real Stevie it's unbelievable!!

The band is made up of 6 musicians/artists, all dressed just like Fleetwood Mac!

Founder - Jim (Doc) Stamps - Mick Fleetwood, Drums/Percussion
Kimmy Scholl - Stevie Nicks Lead Singer
Rob Gamerro - John McVie Bass
Sandy Anderson - Christine McVie Keyboards & Vocals
Keith Cole - Jeremy Spencer Guitar & vocals
Tony Acker - Lindsey Buckingham Guitar & Vocals

They have been playing together since 1991 as a cover band called 'Harder Edge' playing all sorts of classic rock songs. During that time the lead singer Kimmy and drummer Jim/Doc always had people saying to them that they looked like & sounded like Stevie Nicks and Mick Fleetwood, so after so many comments to that effect they decided to try doing strictly a Fleetwood Mac tribute and in less than a years time they're getting gigs all over and being recognized as a great Fleetwood Mac tribute band.

Their shows sell out quick!! They play all the great Fleetwood Mac songs like Sara, The Chain, Gold Dust Woman, Gypsy, to many to name! At the end of their shows they pick like about a dozen people in the audience and give away their CD as a token of their appreciation for supporting the band. Their wish is to make Fleetwood Mac come ALIVE for the fans, make fans happy, have fun, & just enjoy the tunes. If you have a chance to catch one of their shows go and check them out!
