The bands confirmed so far for Rockore are: Simple Minded, The Other Side, The Fillers, Oskar Braves, The South, Joe’s Band, Bad Manners, Party Fears Three and A Tribute to the Human League: Love Distraction formally Dare. More information on these bands are below:
Simple Minded pride themselves on being the world’s best Simple Minds tribute band and rightly so! The bands line up consists of, George Porter – Vocals, Stevie Mason – Bass, Archie Dickson – Guitar, Stuart Clyde – Keyboards and Paul Carnegie – Drums.
Simple Minded have been lauded by past and present members of Simple Minds including singer Jim Kerr.
All the guys in the band are massive Simple Minds fans, so there’s a great deal of energy and enthusiasm in the band to deliver a brilliant set. In the bands own words they love what they do, absolutely love it and hope everyone who comes to their gigs loves it too.
Singer George and bass player Stevie have both worked with original Simple Minds members Derek Forbes and Brian McGee on their own projects. I guess this really underlines the authenticity of Simple Minded and validates what this group is all about. They really are a band that you must see performing live!

Joe’s Band are back again after their outstanding set at last years event.
Formed in 1976 while attending Woodberry Down comprehensive school in Stoke Newington in London, Bad Manners went on to become heavyweight Ska legends and a much loved 80’s band. Just a few years after their formation, they signed to Magnet Records and the group became a household name.
Between 1980 & 1983, Bad Manners spent 111 weeks in the UK charts and the band had 12 hit singles, which included Lip Up Fatty, My Girl Lollipop and Special Brew.
After a successful chart career, some of the band members left in 1986 and their line up has been interchangeable since, but Buster Bloodvessel has always remained and he continues to play the classic anthems to audiences all over the world.
Their numerous TV appearances include many performances on Top Of The Pops along with slots on Tiswas, Cheggers Plays Pop, The Time Of Your Life, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and The Time & The Place. Buster often dressed up for Top Of The Pops, much to the bemusement of the show’s producer and who can forget him clowning around in a frilly dress and a pair of DM’s for the Can Can, playing the part of Henry VIII while singing to a blow up doll during Lorraine and also pretending to be a human blackhead while performing Just A Feeling to the nation!
In 1981 the group performed in front of a television audience of millions at the Brit Awards and Buster himself also starred in the movies, Sammy & Rosie Get Laid and Out Of Order in the late 80’s, before landing a part in an episode of Boon in 1990, while Special Brew has promoted a popular biscuit and also a large UK supermarket chain on TV adverts in recent times. The group also starred in the hit 2 Tone movie, Dance Craze along with Madness and The Specials. In 1996 the volcanic vocalist opened up his own Fatty Towers hotel in Margate, catering and looking after those holiday makers and food lovers who have huge appetites and his residence’s ’18 – 30 stone club’ went down in folklore, even to the approval of some of Britain’s famous food critic’s!
Bad Manners have always been a non stop party band and continue to hold that high accolade to this day, touring extensively both in Britain and abroad.
Lace up your boots, pull up your braces and get ready to party with Buster and the boys. You won’t forget it!
