STUNG is here to fill a void we all long for...the sound of The Police...live!
This San Francisco Bay Area band has quickly made a buzz wowing audiences at the hottest Area night clubs and events around the Bay (SF Black & White Ball, Bay to Breakers "Footstock" Concert, Bimbo's 365 Club), and around the world (Holland Tribute Band Festival). Having even been blessed by a sit-in performance by Police founder / drummer STEWART COPELAND at his Beverly Hills Birthday Party, this trio of gifted musicians have established themselves as the premiere Police experience! STUNG remain dedicated to bringing back that authentic sound that audiences have missed for so long...the sound of the early, the original...The Police.
The sound of The Police is so very distinctive...the poly-rhythmic textures of drummer Stewart Copeland, the guitar sound-scapes of Andy Summers, the reggae bass lines and unmistakable high-pitched wail of Sting. From their 1978 breakthrough album "Outlandous D'Amour" through 1983's swan song "Synchronicity", The Police constantly bridged elements of various music styles, blending reggae with punk, jazz, funk and rock, and made a sound all their own. No one sounded like the Police...
...until now.

When you hear STUNG perform their stunning re-creations of The Police's amazing collection of songs, re-creations of the music by drummer Chad Sylva and guitarist Douglas A, Ott and the dead-on wail of singer/bassist Brooks "Bee" Lundy, audiences sing along to many of their favorite Police songs, reveling in the old gems and re-discovering the many B-sides that groove. From early Police hits like "Roxanne" and "So Lonely", to chart toppers like "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic", "Every Breath You Take" and "King of Pain", all those elements are there; the hyper-syncopated rhythm, the dreamy, ethereal guitar, the high pitched wail...you can close your eyes and forget, for a moment, that it is NOT the Police...and then you've been STUNG!!!

Some say it's the best Police performance in the Bay Area since Day on the Green '83...the last real Police show the Bay Area would ever see.

So come and see for yourself. Come and get STUNG!!!

"..Some may say....I'm wishing my days away..." - The Police

 

" What a great CD that is! I am truly amazed at how good it is, even down to the tiniest details. I've had many a Police fan fooled into thinking it is a tape of the Police rehearsing for an upcoming reunion... Please call me a STUNG fan."
Cheers and regards,
Ian Copeland
(Agent for The Police & Stewart's brother!)

"I was very impressed with how well you covered those songs. Not a simple undertaking, to say the least."

"Hey STUNG guys, ROCK on, We look forward to doing more shows with you... "

"I sat in on a STUNG show over the weekend and they were excellent. For a few seconds I shut my eyes and could swear I was hearing The Police in early 1979.... these guys can play...They have an appreciation for early Police work, which they pull off admirably."
- Stephen S. Sayad
"I'm impressed, it's about time the USA had a Police Tribute Band, and you have filled the void!"

"... OK...I was a little nervous considering the daunting task of covering such prolific musicians but they not only pull it off... they actually sound just like them including Sting's voice...and even Stewart Copeland. I'm not kidding! If you have some time, check them out!"
 
"Very, very nice work on the STUNG disc - I freakin' love it..."
- Smokin' Jay, NOTORIOUS
"...STUNG is the real deal, and it is utterly refreshing to hear these Police songs done live and so well. We should be thankful there are bands today with talent and an awareness of the greatness of The Police, with so much crap out there, especially on TV (and the radio isn't much better). Keep it going STUNG!
 
"HOLY S#*T!!!
I just listened to the
STUNG cd you gave me tonight..! Holy S#*t!!! That is all I can say! YOU ROCK!!"
"You think you're back in time seeing The Police live at some obscure club when they started out. "
 
"If the POLICE aren't going to get back together, at least I have STUNG to fill that void!!!"

"...I love the POLICE and I can't believe this! It's totally unreal, and surreal!!"
