“Undoubtedly the best Dire Straits tribute in Europe”

Money for Nothing was formed in 2000 as a tribute

to one of the world’s premier rock bands – Dire

Straits. The abundant energy and the excellence

and musicality of their performance makes Money

For Nothing a “must see” for any rock enthusiast or

Dire Straits fan. The line-up features top-class and

experienced musicians that make this band a worthy

tribute to Dire Straits. The band have studied Dire

Straits in great depth to re-create their tribute to be

as close as possible to the real thing and a respectful

tribute to their idol and guitar legend.
