WIZARDS OF OZ: The band was formed by Mike Jurgens in 1998 and based in Cheltenham Gloucestershire and is the longest running Ozzy tribute gigging in the UK. After an enforced lay-off following the resignation of guitarist Tim Jones (ex Idol Rich) and then bassist Pete Antonius (ex Tyrant) founder member Mike Jurgens (ex Tyga Myra & Wreckage) started looking for replacements and recruited guitarist Peter Squire from the Black Sabbath tribute "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" and then got Dave Hover in on bass to help pay a musical tribute to one of the all-time greats of Rock 'n Roll, Mr Ozzy Osbourne. The band is now a four piece due to Keyboard player Andy Greig decided to move on mid 2010.. ..The band says: "We're not an Ozzy lookylikey band by any stretch of the imagination, although we did try and get Mike to agree to a sparkly dressing gown and blond hair-do a là 'The Ultimate Sin' tour, but he was having none of it!! Seriously, though, we'd go for the music over the image, any time (and one look at any of the pics will explain everything, hahahaha!!)" .. ..The set-list is positively a win-every-time lucky dip into Ozzy's post-Black Sabbath career, with the emphasis just possibly on the Randy & Jake eras and even the occasional Sabbath song sneaked into the set for good measure! .. ..So come on in, get yerself a good spot somewhere down the front and, as the man himself so eloquently puts it...."LET THE MADNESS BEGIN" .

“It's the next best thing to seeing the Prince of Darkness himself. Local Ozzy Osbourne tribute band Wizards of Oz are to make a one-off appearance on stage in Cirencester in July. Ozzy Osbourne tribute band Wizards of Oz is probably the closest you'll get these days to seeing the Prince of Darkness himself without having to travel to Hollywood and befriend the Ozmeister, or one of his family or pets. The band knocks out almost perfect copycat renditions of Ozzy's hits, along with equally accurate versions of some of the classic hits from Black Sabbath. Songs on the set list regularly include classics such as "I don't know", "Mr Crowley", "Bark at the Moon", "Killer of Giants", "No more tears" and "Perry Mason". The band had recently announced they were going to take a well-deserved short break from performing, but say the temptation of playing a one-off gig at the Corn Hall in Cirencester was one they couldn't resist. ”
