BOOTLEG BLONDIE is THE official Deborah Harry & Blondie tribute band and the only Blondie tribute to play at the legendary CBGB in New York City before it’s sad closure in 2006. CBGB was the Holy Grail of American Punk and New Wave, where the real Blondie first kicked off their career. The Bootlegs have played the Isle Of Wight Festival, the 100 Club & the Hammersmith Palais London, Erics in Liverpool and can be seen at all the major venues across the UK and beyond!. Debbie Harris and the boys have met the REAL Blondie and been officially endorsed by the band. Debbie’s pride & joy is her guitar which she plays during her show and is signed by all the Blondie band members. Deborah Harry got in touch in 2006 when she heard we were playing CBGBs in New York City, to wish us good luck with our show and when Clem Burke, Blondie’s charismatic drummer, found out that we were making a replica of his Premier drum kit, he arranged for us to meet him to sign our bass drum skin. During the 2010 Blondie tour of the UK we took Clem out for a trip around London in our tour bus, he signed that too!!!! In 2014 Clem invited Debbie along to a recording session at the Foo Fighters’ famous Studio 606 in Los Angeles where Dave Grohl made the film Sound City Reel to Reel featuring Paul McCartney recording the Grammy winning track Cut Me Some Slack.
