Who We Are

We Provide The Closest Performance to the REAL thing

We are Planet Duran – The UK’s Premier tribute to the amazing Duran Duran. The members of this band all hail from the City of Birmingham as of course do the original Duran Duran. ‘Planet Duran’ were originally formed a few hundred yards away from Duran Duran’s old rehearsal rooms in the back streets of the old industrial area of Birmingham’s City Centre.

You do not get any closer to the name Simon LeBon (SLB) as our singer Simon Lee Baker (SLB), Please feel free to checkout our videos on either our Facebook page or this website .

Band Background

The band are made up of professional musicians who over the years have played in several very successful tribute and corporate acts. If fact between all the members they clock up over 120 years of gigging experience all over the UK and worldwide.

It is important to us that we act professionally for our clients, so we carry Public Liability Insurance and all our electronic equipment is PAT tested (certificates can be emailed if required) along with risk assessments.

Fully Available

The type of events Planet Duran can perform at are wide ranging – here is a few examples:
Theme nights, live music venues, clubs, festivals, parties and even weddings should the Bride and Groom be massive Duranies.

Venue Support

At all time the band members are courteous to others on and off the stage. We do not use profanities in our set so we are friendly to all ages.

We can also provide an automated DJ service if required or a manned DJ service at extra cost.

Team

Our success depends on the strength of our team. We have a multi-talented team who are professional musicians for over 2 decades – See ‘Members’ MENU (at the top) for details.
