Eel Pie Xtra - Rugby World Cup Special


"The Sound, the look of Blondie, it's all there!", THE SUN.
"This female singer spookily resembles Debbie Harry!" THE STANDARD.
"Good luck with your show!" DEBBIE HARRY.

Bootleg Blondie is the Official Deborah Harry & Blondie tribute band and the only Blondie tribute to play at the legendary CBGBs in New York City before it's sad closure in 2006.  CBGBs was the Holy Grail of American Punk and New Wave where the real Blondie first kicked off their career.

The Bootlegs have also played The Isle Of Wight Festival, the 100 Club & Hammersmith Palais in London, Eric's in Liverpool and appear regularly at many top venues and festivals around the UK and Europe.

Debbie Harris and the boys have met the REAL Blondie and been officially endorsed by the band.  Debbie's pride and joy is her guitar which she plays during her show and is signed by all the Blondie band members.

Debbie Harris, lead vocalist of Bootleg Blondie, has the looks, the voice and the attitude of the original Blondie Bombshell and like her herione is typically outrageous on stage.  She has been known to wear dustbin liners, thigh length boots and t-shirts with more holes than t-shirt!  Debbie Harris is the niece of the celebrated singer and actress Shani Wallis who played Nancy in Lionel Bart's musical film, 'Oliver'. www.bootlegblondie.com/
