Bulsara and His Queenies are a remarkable 7-piece band that perform the music of Queen to an exceptional and spine-tingling standard.
Made up of young music graduates and a former physics teacher, they have their own identity: not quite what is expected of your typical ‘Queen Tribute Band’. There are no wigs, no yellow jacket and no attempt to look like Queen.
The quality of the musicianship is world class. Lead vocalist Gareth Taylor’s vocal resemblance to Freddie Mercury is extraordinary. Backed by superb vocal harmonies and a meticulously accurate back line, lead guitarist Robert Hudson’s ability to recreate the classic ‘Brian May sound’ has to be heard to be believed.
The band take pride in performing the ‘studio versions’ of Queen’s back catalogue and not the easier live versions; there is no attempt to recreate Queen’s famous 1986 Magic Tour.
Queen recorded over 190 songs and Bulsara and His Queenies storm through an eclectic repertoire which appeals to their ever growing worldwide fan-base without conforming to the middle-of-the-road and obvious ‘Greatest Hits’ collection. Of course you will hear several hits such as Bohemian Rhapsody (they do the operatic section live) and Somebody To Love, but also some Deep Cuts from Queen’s diverse back catalogue.
Bulsara and His Queenies are experiencing a meteoric rise to the top, taking bookings from across the globe and playing shows for high profile clients such as Twentieth Century Fox, The Mercury Phoenix Trust, The Make A Wish Foundation, as well as performing at several exclusive parties.
In September 2019 they will return to Montreux, Switzerland, to headline The Official Freddie Mercury Birthday Party for the second successive year – a feat accomplished by no other band.
Bulsara and His Queenies provide the most discerning Queen fan with a unique experience, proving beyond doubt that it is possible to perform Queen’s music without looking like them - and to be respected more for doing so.
Testimonials from the band’s Facebook page.
“The stars aligned with this spirited collaboration of musical maestros, each one a true genius of their craft, blending effortlessly together. Their music has the ability to take you joyously back in time, whilst their on stage presence keeps you very much in the moment.”
“Close your eyes and you’d be forgiven for thinking that you’d pressed play on a Queen record. Bulsara and His Queenies are the closest sound to Queen apart from the Queen herself!”
“If you love Queen’s music you are in for a treat. Even Queen love this talented band. Don’t miss out .”
“Without doubt, the best live band you will see this year and they play Queen’s music!!”
“As a life Long die hard Queen fan I saw BAHQ in Montreux and again last night in Halifax!! They really are the next best thing to Queen and really produce the best homage to a fantastic band. They performed amazing album track and made an old Queen fan VERY happy. The guitarists are too young to play so well!!!”
Home from a superb mind blowing evening. Rarely do I go through every single emotion in one night but I did tonight, sheer joy and admiration for a group of insanely talented people goes above everything else though. What is even more apparent however is how down to earth they are as well; could not want to meet a better group of people or watch them play live. Bulsara and his Queenies truly are magical, from the gut busting guitar solos, the deep frenzied bass playing, awesome rhythm section or the melodic harmonies there wasn’t a foot they could put wrong. Being a lifelong Queen fan, it’s been an epic night seeing songs brought to life rarely if at all played live by Queen!!”
“Becoming a world famous band that has an eye for details!! Making the old days of Queen come back to life again.”
“Wow. Have just seen Bulsara and His Queenies. To call them a tribute band does not do them justice!! Whilst they celebrate the music of Freddie and Queen, they are incredible in their own right. I’ve never been as close to such eclectic talent. Ever. COULD. NOT. RECOMMEND. ENOUGH.”
