Foo Fighters Tribute band – Foo Fakerz – are creating a big buzz on the popular Western Australian tribute-act scene. Having formed in early 2022, the goal was to celebrate and deliver the unmistakable music of the Foo Fighters to venues throughout Perth and WA with a stunning level of energy, authenticity and accuracy.
The core element of the live Foo Fakerz show is set by the immensely talented rhythm section duo of Marty Pye and Dale Ward. They are the pulse and groove, setting up the huge live sound and vibe on stage. Marty pays homage to the legendary Taylor Hawkins (RIP) with his passionate performance, trademark Hawkins long blonde hair and unmistakable leopard skin pants. Dale blends in his cool and clever ‘Nate Mendell’ bass lines to help pave the way for guitar slinging powerhouse of Mel Griffiths, fitted out in Chris Shiflett style bandana and checkered shirt, delivering all those famously tasty Foo Fighters riffs.
Up front, Pete not only delivers those familiar bellowing Grohl-esk vocals, but re-enacts Dave’s signature stage moves and even some of his most crowd exhilarating speeches. This stage persona tops off the visually and sonically dynamic show that is the Foo Fakerz, leaving even the most die hard Foo fan fully satisfied. Our set list consists of an ever evolving selection of Foo Fighters classics and deeper cuts which aims to please all fans across all the Foo eras.
