The 40 Watt Band are your men!
Consisting of dedicated musicians from Belgian alternative bands such as Cmon Cmon, Mercelis and Very Camel, The 40 Watt Band catches R.E.M.’s sound and vibe with great accuracy. Adding the voice of singer Bert Leijssen, which bears much resemblance to Michael Stipe’s, makes this band a must-see tribute act.
