Dire Straits:UK is a dream come true for the 6 musicians that make up the band, who are for the most part a Theatre touring band, but happy to play other venues and private functions of course

For many musicians, the music of Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits has been the inspiration that had them picking up an instrument and starting to play but Few can say that they're lucky enough to perform their music live.

Dire Straits music has always been special. To the regular listener, the unmistakable sounds of Money for Nothing, Romeo and Juliet, Walk of Life and Sultans of Swing are instantly recognisable. For musicians, Dire Straits' music is a musical masterclass in musical arrangement, sound and production.

Dire Straits:UK was founded on principle of recreating the sounds and arrangements that made the songs so special - enough to please the most die-hard of fans as well as the regular music fan.

Dire Straits:UK brings the sound and vibe of the 85-91 concert era Dire Straits, performing the biggest stadium hits while also harping back to the early 80s albums for some instantly recognisable album classics such as Where do you think you're going and Lady Writer.

Dire Straits:UK put on an upbeat show full of the biggest hits that everyone will recognise alongside the epic ballads Romeo and Juliet and Brothers in Arms.
