The Police Academy

This page contains downloadable resources for use by agents, promoters and anyone connected with any event events with which The Police Academy are involved - and includes logos, images, text, set lists, and our technical specification. If you are involved in promoting an event, please also read the notes section below.

Notes for Promoters

We request that in any advertising literature we are referred to by our full title, “The Police Academy” rather than the shortened “Police Academy” or a generic title such as “Police Tribute”. This is important to us as it helps to distinguish us from other bands that are using the name “Police Academy” as well as other Police tribute bands, and it helps us to build our following.

Promotional Text (~200 Words)

Many tribute bands claim to have one particular element of their act "just right" - the look, the sound, the equipment, the musicianship... Yet rarely do you find a band where each one of these individual components has been painstakingly addressed in just as much detail as the last. The Police Academy, however, do exactly that. Recreating and reproducing a totally authentic experience that allows audiences to enjoy and immerse themselves in some of the best known songs ever written by truly, one of the World's greatest ever bands. Roxanne, Message In A Bottle, Every Breath You Take, King Of Pain, Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic and Walking On The Moon are just few of the highlights in a set that could legitimately be described as "all killer, no filler". The high-energy and engaging nature of the band's performances ensures that they willingly command your full attention from the very first note to the last, totally immersing you in the music and ensuring you have just as much fun as they do along the way.

Stage Plan

Sample Set Lists

Whilst we don't play exactly the same set at every show, below are typical running orders we would use. We rehearse more songs than we play in any one show, so some may be rotated from one show to another, and the exact order may change. We can split our set into two smaller sets if required, however our preference is to play a single set of up to 90 minutes.
