Bootleg Blondie is the official Debbie Harry & Blondie tribute band – Clem from the real Blondie has actually played with the Bootleg band at one very memorable gig.

Lead vocalist Debbie Harris has appeared on two shows for BBC1 when she was picked out of 15,000 applicants to represent Debbie Harry on Even Better Than The Real Thing hosted by Paddy McGuinness. The shows attracted an audience of 10 million viewers!

Debbie Harris, lead vocalist of Bootleg Blondie, has the looks, the voice and the attitude of the original Blondie bombshell, and like her heroine is typically outrageous on stage. She has been known to wear dustbin liners, thigh length boots and T-shirts with more holes than T-shirt! Debbie’s pride & joy is her guitar that she plays at every show and is signed by all the Blondie members.

Bootleg Blondie have played the Isle Of Wight Festival, the 100 Club, the Hammersmith Palais and the Electric Ballroom in London, Eric’s in Liverpool, and have opened up for among others The Undertones, Slade, Bad Manners, The Beat, Heaven 17, Toyah, Hazel O’Connor, Visage, Bananarama, Altered Images, Howard Jones, Chas and Dave, and Tony Hadley.
