KILLER Queen will turn up the heat when they pay tribute to to Britain's regal rock quartet Queen at the Grafton District Services Club on Saturday night.

The Brisbane-based band has been fine-tuning the show over nine years with full costumes, replica instruments, superb musicianship and with all the cast resembling the original members of Queen, including lead singer Freddie Mercury.

Killer Queen's success has attracted international attention and in 2011 they performed in Norway, Singapore and New Zealand.

This year they have tours planned for the US, Britain and Europe, and Brazil.

Killer Queen has received recognition within the entertainment industry for both its musicality as well as startling resemblances to the original Queen line-up.

In 2010, the band's John Blunt took to the stage in a look-alike competition for French television show "Qui Sera Le Meilleur Sosie?" in front of a global audience of seven million.

The band also appeared on television show Australia's Got Talent.

Their performances have attracted rave reviews and testimonials from a host of industry heavyweights including Dannii Minogue, Larry Emdur and respected music historian Glen A Baker.

Regularly requested for corporate functions and festivals, Killer Queen is sure to be the hottest ticket in town on Saturday night.

The band plays at the GDSC on Saturday night.
