Contenders are one of the leading Pretenders tribute act. There’s no doubt that they very well know how to satisfy not only the followers of Pretenders works.

When Marko Babineau decided to put together this tribute, he thought that The Pretenders were the perfect blend of strong familiarity without been over-played. You think you know their two or three songs until you hear the set; it is literally a one-after-the-other of “I know this one too”.
Contenders have up to 2 hours of heavy radio rotation Chrissie Hynde songs. Even the deep B-side cuts are recognizable. That is why Contenders wins over every single audience they play for.
And, because Hynde is such a strong female icon, women of all ages are inspired, making every Contenders performance a spiritually uplifting experience.
