Sweet And Tender Hooligans
From their website:
As the “ultimate tribute to Morrissey and the Smiths,” LA-based Sweet and Tender Hooligans have been paying homage to the legendary British indie band for more than two decades with their finely crafted tribute show. Performing to sold-out crowds throughout the US, Mexico and UK, frontman Jose Maldonado channels Morrissey so convincingly that Moz himself has even jokingly taken the stage with the opening line “Hello, we are the Sweet and Tender Hooligans and I’m Jose.” From their era-perfect style to Maldonado’s Morrissey-inspired coif, the band never fails to satisfy even the most rigorous Smiths purists, leaving fans to wonder “How Soon Is Now” in regards to their future tour dates.
Contributed cover versions of Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now and There Is A Light That Never Goes Out to Stop Me If You've Heard This One Before: A Tribute To The Smiths (2007).
