“…Duran frontman Simon Le Bon would probably endorse these guys. Musically, they were bang on the money. Playing to a packed house, they covered all the essential tunes…” – Rob & Nady (Yasmin Le Bon’s sister), owners – Joe’s Restaurant (Oxford)

“…The Duran Duran Experience were the icing on the top of the cake for the 2012 UK fan convention in Birmingham. Our guests from all four corners of the globe danced their shoes off and sang their hearts out of their chests. The band delivered a diverse set list of fan favourites, both classic and current hits through two fabulous sets. The Duran Duran Experience’s attention to detail ensures their sound is authentic and most of all infectious to listen to. 5 stars all round!…” – Dave Stott, Organiser: UKDDCON2012
