For years I’ve had people say to me that my voice sounds like Sting. Initially I was a bit taken aback by these comments however, I now regard statements such as this as an amazing compliment so I asked myself “why not put this Sting-esque voice of mine to good use and form a Police tribute show?”
Hence The Synchronicity Police (also affectionately known as “TSP”) was created.
TSP was born out of an obsessive passion of all things Police and Sting by myself and long time mates Greg Adamopoulos (Andy Summers) and Dave Branton (Stewart Copeland). We recreate a 2 hour live Police experience utilising all of the classic Police hits such as Message In A Bottle, Walking On The Moon and (of course) Roxanne which has been a crowd favourite at my own live shows.
Very recently we have added renowned keyboard player Victor Oria to the mix and in the future we’re going to expand the repertoire to include the very best of Stings solo catalogue.
Here is a recent review of our Fringe show (Steph Glaser, Independent Weekly March 9th, 2010):
“… Corey Stewart, Greg Adamopoulos and Dave Branton were The Police.
Ripping the bass during the first set, Stewart belted out favourites such as Don’t Stand so Close to Me, De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da and Wrapped Around Your Finger while Adamopoulos jammed on guitar and Branton pounded the drums. They also covered B-sides such as When the World is Running Down and It’s Alright for You. Stewart’s singing, especially the wails and screams, did more than justice to Sting, while Adamopoulos and Branton amply honoured Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland.
The first set ran slightly short, but the trio absolutely rocked the second set. The middle-aged crowd appeared to relive the 80′s while they sang, danced and pumped their fists to the power hits Every Little Thing She Does is Magic‚ Message in a Bottle, and King of Pain. The band didn’t disappoint with a seemingly endless encore that included Roxanne, Every Breath You Take and So Lonely.
This is truly a tribute show and it’s easy to see the band members are hard-core fans.”
The above review was a good one and I’m very proud of TSP and what we’ve achieved so far. I know that we would rock any venue that decides to have us.
