Russ ocasionally performs with a full blown Tribute Band which tours larger clubs and arenas.
"It's great to play with a full band again now and then," he says, "but when you take into account there are sometimes at least seven musicians to pay, it puts the show in a whole new price bracket, and let's face it, the way things are, it's out of reach for some venues. The solo Tribute is inevitably more affordable but that's not to say that I wouldn't go all out with a band in the future. Never say never !"
He goes on to add, "The problem is, finding other dedicated musicians who look and sound the part."

Why You Should Be Dancing with Russ

Taken from an article in The Wiltshire Times Friday 19th September 2008

By Charley Morgan          A ONE-MAN Bee Gees tribute act from Trowbridge will be helping to raise money for a worthy cause when he takes to the stage later this month.

Russ Matthews, will be playing to audiences with a very special piece of memorabilia at the Lady In Red Ball in the Civic Hall on Saturday September 27.

The guitar he will use for his act was signed by Bee Gee Robin Gibb last week and has become his prized possession.

Last Sunday Russ scored an invite to attend a  garden party at his idol's home in Thame, Oxfordshire, through one of his talent agents.

He said: "I was chatting to him (Robin) and he was very laid back. He was interested in my tribute and I told him I play the same guitar that his brother Barry uses onstage. I couldn't believe it when he agreed to sign it !"

Russ said that after Mr Gibb signed the guitar a professional photographer, who had been taking pictures nearby asked if he could buy it from him.

He said: "A chap who was auctioning off Bee Gees memorabelia told me that the value of the guitar would have increased six fold with the signature. I am going to use it on stage, but I am going to see how it goes as I don't want the signature to rub off.

But I will be using it at the ball."

Russ, who has been a professional singer since the 1990s has been impersonating the Bee Gees since going to their last concert in England at Wembley Stadium in 1999.

Despite the fact the Bee Gees were a three piece band, the one man act makes sure he supplies all the harmonies needed by pre-recording a backing track depending on which brother he is impersonating on stage.

What People Say

“Professionalism and perfection” two words that quite simply describe your Bee Gees tribute, your attention to detail in both presentation of the lyrics, backing and artistic presentation was quite remarkable, you must have spent many hours in producing such a wonderful act. All this coupled with a tremendous lighting display, managed effectively by your lighting engineer recreated the Bee Gees era exactly. Seldom have I seen a more class act than the show that you created that evening for our charity ball.


Thank you so much for your assistance also in taking charge of the stage management for the other bands appearing and your expertise in organising the running order for the whole event. I wish you on behalf of my committee all the very best for the future.


Kind Regards
