Bootleg Blondie

Bootleg Blondie is the official Debbie Harry and Blondie tribute band and the only Blondie tribute to play the legendary CBGBs in New York City before its demise in 2006. CBGB was the Holy Grail of American Punk and New Wave, where the real Blondie first kicked off their career.

Debbie Harris and 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 amongst others The Undertones, Slade, Bad Manners, The Beat, Heaven 17, Toyah, Hazel O’Connor, Visage, Bananarama, Altered Images, Howard Jones, Chas and Dave, Tony Hadley and can be seen at all the major venues and festivals around the UK and Europe.

Debbie Harris and the boys have met the real Blondie and are officially endorsed by the band. Debbie Harry got in touch in 2006 when she heard they were playing CBGBs in New York City to wish them good luck. When Clem Burke, Blondie’s charismatic drummer, found out they were making a replica of his Premier drum kit, he arranged for the band to meet him to sign the drum kit, which is now used at all of their shows. 

In 2014 Clem invited Debbie and band member Andy to a recording session at the Foo Fighters’ famous 606 Studio in Los Angeles, where they saw Clem and the impressive Neve mixing desk in action. The pair even received a congratulary video message from Harry herself when they got married and in 2016 they welcome Clem live on stage to perfom drums with the band. In 2017, their biggest accolade came when Blondie acknowledged the band's talent on their 11th album, Pollinator. 

Debbie Harris has the looks, the voice and the attitude of the original Blondie bombshell and like her heroine is typically outrageous on stage, and her pride and joy is Debbie’s guitar which she plays at every show and is signed by all the Blondie members.
