BOOTLEG BLONDIE is the world’s No.1 official Debbie Harry & Blondie tribute band established in 2001, the only Blondie tribute to play the legendary CBGB in New York City and unique in that not only have they had the honour to be thanked on Blondie’s 11th studio album ‘Pollinator’, but also toured the UK in 2019 with one of Blondie’s founding members and legendary drummer, their good friend Clem Burke, to celebrate 40 years since the release of Blondie’s iconic album Parallel Lines! In an interview Andy described Clem as the coolest older brother you could ever want.
Both tours were a whirlwind of sell out shows, radio, press interviews and fab reviews, they drove nearly 5,000 miles and played to over 7,000 people!
On a day off during the first CBBB tour, Andy and Clem wrote a song. They went into a studio in south London and recorded the track ‘Enigma Soho Au Go Go’. Debbie put down some vocals and the single was released in April of this year both online and on vinyl by Pop-Up Music. Awesome!

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.
Debbie Harris, as seen on BBC1, is the niece of the celebrated singer and actress Shani Wallis who played Nancy in Lionel Bart’s musical film ‘Oliver’!
