About yesshows

Yesshows was founded in 2016 during a progressive rock night in de Boerderij in Zoetermeer (the Netherlands).

The band consists of five top musicians who bring the music of Yes from the Yessongs era with the same passion and energy as Yes did in the 70s. The comments from the worldwide Yes fans are very positive. Some even talk about Yesshows as one of the best Yes tribute bands in the world.

Through this website you will be informed about our upcoming concerts, watch the live promo films and read the comments of the Yes fans.

If you want to feel that energy and passion, then you should not miss this.

We perform the songs with the same energy and intensity as Yessongs.

How about Close to the Edge and And you and I ?

How about Roundabout and Heart of the sunrise ?

How about Perpetual change and Starship trooper ?

How about that beautiful Relayer song called Soon ?

How about Wonderous stories and masterpiece Awaken ?

This is really nice!

Nice job guys

That was truly brilliant !!! Love & peace

Martin - the musicianship here is brilliant. By far the best Yes tribute I've seen. Keep up the good work, and post more here for all of us to enjoy!

Amazing cover! I play drums, but this, one of my favorite songs ever, is simply too intense for me..Tip of hat to the outstanding drummer! Everyone else too.!

Yes songs are perfectly suited the female voice, I would love to see a show,

Probably the best real YES Tribute Band I've heard. I really enjoyed it. They didn't miss a beat!!! I'd rather hear them than the Allen White Band playing Yes music.

I been a yes fan for40 yrs now my friend has a band that play yes music like u guys ur a great bass palyers keep rocking it

Excellent, every note, every nuance captured- DAMN! I do wish the singer was not flat in some places, but I couldn't do it, so...props.

Absolutely outstanding musicianship. All parts they nailed it.

That gave me chills. Beautifully done!

RESPECT! Excellent rendition, you nailed it, tone, timing, force, feeling.....and it is a gargantuan track!

Omg, they sound just like Yes! Awrsome!

I am really blown away by this! Wow! fantastic. I am a lifelong Yesfan and am really impressed by this!

Tonight's show at the parkvilla theater in Alphen aan den Rijn was great! I am a big Yes fan since the late seventies. You guys and girl play Yes so Yes-like. It was fantastic and I certainly will come to one of your future shows. It is great that bands like yours help to keep the classic symphonic music alive. Thanks for a fantastic evening.
