Bio

The Watch are an early-Genesis tribute band who also record their own material. Billed as The Blue Show - the Foxtrot album - they start with acoustic-based songs and build the tension as they add more powerful numbers. Exactly the way Genesis themselves used to do it around 1970/71

These guys really knew their subject, with singer Simone Rossetti sounding exactly like Peter Gabriel. As they moved into the powerful numbers such as Time Table and Can Utility and the Coastliners, you could feel the atmosphere build. By the time we got Musical Box and In the Cage, the band were feeding off a rapturous reception.

Guitarist Giorgio Gabriel (his real name!) managed a beautiful rendition of Steve Hackett's classical solo piece Horizons, made all the more captivating by playing it on 12-string.

Performing everything from Foxtrot could only mean one thing - the highlight of the evening would be Supper's Ready. It was flawless:absolutely stunning. Tears flowed. Like most of the audience I've seen all the Genesis tribute bands of the last few years, no-one outwith Genesis themselves has played this song better. I would dare to say they were the best tribute band, Genesis or otherwise, I've ever seen.

...a strong and powerful performance - Steve Hackett - Genesis guitar player
