The Sons & Heirs (A Tribute to The Smiths & Morrissey)
The Sons & Heirs (A Tribute to The Smiths & Morrissey)
The music of Morrissey, Johnny Marr & co. lives on with The Sons & Heirs, a New York-based tribute band that recreates the experience of seeing The Smiths in their prime. Singer Ronnissey, guitarist Ravi Marr, bassist Fredo Rourke, and drummer Flax Joyce deliver the songs and live atmosphere of The Smiths and solo Morrissey with careful attention to detail, down to the last flower left on stage. Since 2006, The Sons & Heirs have performed everywhere from Tel Aviv to Los Angeles, sharing the stage with the likes of Smiths bassist Andy Rourke and Morrissey drummer Spencer Cobrin.

"The best NYC-based Smiths tribute band...singer ‘Ronnissey’ and guitarist ‘Ravi Marr’ do fine impressions of the original Manchester rock icons" - New York Post

“…these guys love the band, and they’re really passionate about it” – Andy Rourke, The Smiths

"The Smiths will never re-form...so for most fans The Sons & Heirs are the closest they will ever get" - The Daily Beast

Spencer Cobrin was Morrissey's drummer from 1991-1998, which is a rather large chunk of The Stretford Bard's solo career. There he is in classic photos of the band, in the videos on The Malady Lingers On and Oye Esteban and the live recordings Live in Dallas and, not to mention that he also wrote some songs as well. Tonight littlefield welcomes Dj Spencer!
