In 2017, the sounds of silence seem to be drowning
out what really matters. In this day and age, the
universal lyrics of Simon and Garfunkel have become more
relevant than ever. Hailing from Stourbridge, England,
Dan Haynes and Pete Richards are the members of
Bookends, perhaps the finest Simon and Garfunkel Tribute
band in the world. They sing the songs that speak to the
times as importantly as they did 50 years ago.
Friends since childhood, Dan and Pete were young
musicians bonded through a shared love for the music of
Simon and Garfunkel. When they reached adulthood, both
men decided to keep the spirit of Simon and Garfunkel
The pair has received tremendous acclaim in their
home country with BBC Radio WM calling their performance
“a masterpiece.” Over the years, Bookends have been able
to fine-tune their vocals to the point that they now
sing in perfect harmony, just like Simon and Garfunkel.
They appear at the Spencer with a string quartet for a
night of pure musical poetry.
