R.E.M. Tribute Band - Shiny Happy People


Shiny Happy People are a UK based R.E.M. tribute band who, like the original band from Athens GA, are a four piece outfit faithfully recreating the songs of Berry, Buck, Mills and Stipe.

Formed in mid-2009 with a wealth of professional music experience including hundreds of live shows, BBC recording sessions, major summer festivals and television appearances, these individuals entertain on all kinds of level/stage - from private parties to headlining at outdoor events.

Shiny Happy People are without doubt the most authentic sounding R.E.M. tribute band around, giving audiences the best of R.E.M. and a real show to remember!
