Now in its tenth anniversary, the Deep Purple Family Tree started as an annual event in the West Midlands paying homage to the music created by the members of Deep Purple and it has grown to be the most successful one off multi tribute band event in the UK. So much so that for the latter half of 2016 and all of 2017 the show will be taken around the country playing the best theatres, Art Centres & Academies.

Featuring three of the UK's best tribute bands, Whitesnake UK, Pure Purple & The Blackmore Legacy, the DPFT show is an electrically charged event for lovers of classic rock and live music alike.

A show you won't want to miss !!


Formed in January 2005, Whitesnake UK play tribute to the very best of David Coverdale's multi platinum selling, Whitesnake. From the early classic ...Moody/Marsden line-up to the present day USA incarnation, faithfully reproducing classic songs such as 'Fool For Your Loving', 'Is This Love' and 'Here I Go Again'. With a combined musical experience of over 100 years Whitesnake UK can proudly boast of having some of the most accomplished personnel in any tribute band.


''COS WE ARE!!!'


Pure Purple specialise in the era when Ian Gillan, and Roger Glover joined Ritchie Blackmore, Jon Lord and Ian Paice to form the classic MK 2 line up. Pure Purple perform their songs with the same infectious energy and passion as Deep Purple did in the 1970’s and go to great lengths to sound as authentic as possible too with Marshal Amps, Hammond Organ, Fender Guitars and Leslie Speakers.

Some of the songs you can expect to hear are MKII classics such as Highway Star, Child In Time, Woman From Tokyo, Smoke on the Water, Black Night, Strange Kind of Woman, Lazy, Speed King, Fireball and from a few years later Perfect Strangers.


The Blackmore Legacy were formed in late 2014 from the ashes of Rainbow Rising and were formed to recreate the real Ritchie Blackmore sound, style and on stage persona with breath-taking accuracy. The members of The Blackmore Legacy Band, as with all the real Richie Blackmore's bands, have been selected for their individual ability to emulate the legendary musicians who have graced the Deep Purple Family Tree.
