BOOTLEG BLONDIE is the official Debbie Harry & Blondie tribute band and the only Blondie tribute to play the legendary CBGBs in New York City before its demise in 2006.
CBGB was the Holy Grail of American Punk and New Wave, where the real Blondie first kicked off their career.
In addition to their appearance at CBGBs, in 2016 Clem Burke (Blondie drummer) came along to a Bootleg Blondie gig and actually joined the band on stage to play drums! He said afterwards that watching and playing with Bootleg Blondie was very emotional.
In May 2017 Bootleg Blondie also had the honour of being mentioned on Blondie’s 11th studio album ‘Pollinator’ and in January 2019 Clem Burke joined the band playing full shows on a major UK tour.
Debbie Harris, lead vocalist of Bootleg Blondie, has the looks, the voice and the attitude of the original Blondie bombshell. Like her heroine she is typically outrageous on stage and has been known to wear dustbin liners, thigh length boots and t-shirts with more holes than t-shirt!
