Earth, Wind, For Hire is a light-hearted tribute to tribute bands. Presented by comedian and musician Bill Bailey, the programme traces the history of the tribute band phenomenon, examining some of the more unusual acts that are playing today, how they manage to recreate the sounds and the look of the original artists, and what they add to the music of the bands they’re covering.
