The National Tribute Music Awards are the UK’s biggest award ceremony aimed at honouring the incredible musical contribution made by the country’s leading tribute acts. Organised by Champions (UK) plc each year, the event regularly sees a star-studded line up take to the live music stage. Building on more than 15 years’ worth of experience in the music and entertainment sector, The National Tribute Awards is one of Champions’ most exciting events.
Featuring appearances from some of the country’s best-loved celebrities, the event is eagerly anticipated by music professionals and event guests alike. The event recognises tribute music excellence across a staggering 14 categories, which includes awards for Best Newcomer, Best Multi-Tribute Artist or Band, Best Video Production, Best Band, Best Female Artist, Best Male Artist, Best Theatre Tour, Best Look-Alike and Best Sound and Lighting.
In addition, the event’s Lifetime Achievement Award and Music Industry Award represent further highlights. Apart from recognising contributions from the artists themselves, the National Tribute Music Awards also recognise the work of numerous professionals in the tribute entertainment sector, featuring equally coveted awards in categories such as Tribute Agent of the Year, Best Marketing & PR and Booking Venue of the Year. As a result, the awards’ unique setup ensures that guests are left with lasting memories of the occasion. Presenting an evening filled with lavish dining and exhilarating entertainment, the National Tribute Music Awards incorporate all the features of a top gala event.
An unquestionable highlight of the tribute music calendar, the event sees guests dance the night away to the music of some of the biggest tribute bands in the United Kingdom today. Just this year, the National Tribute Music Awards featured live performances by top acts such as Rogue Minogue, Ultimate Jess Glynn and Little Fix. Furthermore, the evening featured a dizzying array of further tribute acts eager to secure a prize for themselves. Tribute bands like Absolute Bowie, Talon and ELO Experience are just some of the bands that have taken home one of our coveted awards.
Bands like Hats off to Led Zeppelin, Green Date, MacBusted, Oye Santana and the Black Eyed Peaz have also made popular appearances in the past. The event has proven time and time again that the country’s solo tribute acts are a musical force to be reckoned with. This year, the awards featured appearances from the likes of Paul Reason as Robbie Williams, Jimmy Jermain as Cliff Richard and Mark Summer as Elvis Presley. With each act displaying an authenticity rarely found in the tribute world, the event sees the country’s best-loved acts come together in celebration of their craft. Solo performances that have emerged victorious include Jeff Dingle as Bruno Mars, Donna Marie as Lady Gaga and Andy Monk as Simon Cowell.
Through celebrating the accomplishments of our tribute entertainers, the National Tribute Music Awards play an important role in driving the success of the sector. With such a bright future ahead of them, we’re likely to see many more talented performers take to the stage in the years to come.
