Chris Clark who portrays Simon le Bon has been a professional musician for nearly 20 years. Bearing a striking likeness to Simon he is also a fabulous "sound-alike".
Lee James is widely recognised as the most authentic performer to Tony Hadley, playing across the UK and Europe for over 10 years. Lee has performed with Tony on various occasions, including BBC's The One Show and is endorsed by Gary Kemp and Tony himself. Martin Kemp when seeing a picture of Lee on Facebook commented "you got it dude!" High praise indeed!!
