Fronting the band is the brilliant guitarist and Mark Knopfler sound-alike, Aled Williams. Behind him the line-up features top-class and experienced musicians that make this band a worthy tribute to Dire Straits. Aled and the entire band have studied Dire Straits in great depth to re-create their tribute to be as close as possible to the real thing. Not only ‘can the boy play’ but his voice is also what makes Money for Nothing so unique. You will also see an array of guitars like Mark would play. 2020 is their 20th Anniversary and set to be the biggest and best yet!
