Pretentious  a tribute to  
Band Bio

Pretentious is L.A.'s original tribute to The Pretenders, faithfully recreating the classic Pretenders' live show from the 80s, including Pretenders' hits like "Middle of The Road", “Back on The Chain Gang”, and "I'll Stand by You".

Hynde and company are definitive rock icons, and Pretentious have captured the essence of the Pretenders spirit with their spot-on renditions of timeless Pretenders’ songs. Playing hallmark Pretenders classics like "Precious", "Mystery Achievement", “Tattooed Love Boys” and "Brass in Pocket", Pretentious pays homage to the original Pretenders line-up of Chrissie Hynde, Martin Chambers, James Honeyman-Scott and Pete Farndon.

With the eerily Hynde-like vocals and punctuating rhythm guitar of Dina Gathe (in the role of Chrissie Hynde), the thumping bass of John Tosdal (as Pete Farndon), the energetic drumming of Eddie DeJoy (as Martin Chambers), and the unabashed guitar solos of Brian Keith (as James Honeyman-Scott), the Pretentious live show offers an authentic recreation of the pure rock and roll energy and Hynde sensuality that have made the Pretenders world famous.

We hope seeing a Pretentious show will inspire you to learn more about, purchase the records and DVDs of, and go to see one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time: The Pretenders.

We'd love to see you at a show, and long live The Pretenders!
