The Counterfeit Police have been together for just over 15 years. The band was formed by Paul Metcalfe in 1997 after friends and fellow musicians kept commenting on his vocal and physical similarities to Sting and how he should form a Police Tribute Band! Paul and the band are all big Police fans and it gives them a great buzz to be able to go out on stage and perform such great music.
Paul Metcalfe (Sting) has over 25 years’ experience as a professional singer and entertainer. He has a dynamic stage presence and an awesome vocal ability which together with his looks mean that people could be forgiven for thinking they were actually watching the man himself performing on stage. He likes to keep it quiet but he appeared as Sting on ‘Stars In Their Eyes’ a few years ago. Andy Marshall (Andy Summers) and Anthony D. Kiley (Stewart Copeland) are both highly experienced and talented musicians who have a string of credits between them including The Blow Monkeys, Chris De Burgh, George Michael, Shirley Bassey, Dina Carroll, Curtis Mayfield and Bjorn Again. The Counterfeit Police perform all the huge hits in the show including Roxanne, Every Breath You Take, Message In A Bottle, Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic, Don’t Stand So Close To Me, Walking On The Moon, De Do Do Do De Da Da Da, So Lonely, Spirits In The Material World, Can’t Stand Losing You, Invisible Sun, King Of Pain and Wrapped Around Your Finger. They also, whenever possible, like to include other great Police tunes in the set such as Bring On The Night, Synchronicity I, Synchronicity II, Bed’s Too Big Without You, Driven To Tears, Tea In The Sahara and more.
