Dire Straits’ legacy is alive and well thanks to the musicians who made history with the band. The Straits features members of the original line-up, performing songs from Dire Strait’s discography. For fans that have missed one of the best-loved groups of the eighties, The Straits offer a fantastic musical experience!
Dire Straits' Alan Clark and Chris White with five hand-picked, world class musicians - Terence Reis, Steve Ferrone from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Mickey Féat, Adam Phillips and Jamie Squire - performing the music of Dire Straits.
It’s been more than four decades since drummer/producer Bobby Colomby and friends assembled the first group to successfully blend rock and jazz into a genre-crossing sound and style. So successfully, in fact, that the band’s second album, Blood, Sweat & Tears, topped the Billboard charts, beat out the Beatles Abbey Road for Grammy Album of the Year, and produced three major hit singles “You Made me so Very Happy,” “Spinning Wheel,” “And When I Die.”
Over the next four decades, Colomby, who owns the B, S & T franchise, kept the band in the public eye via a succession of players.
