  1. Just heard about the Tribute Band Week. I believe that anything is possible, so tell me there is still time to book the best Bob Seger tribute band I’ve ever heard. These guy are from Michigan not far from Bob’s home town of Ann Arbor. If you are interested in hearing a sample of them please go to their My Space website: http://www.myspace.com/nightmoveslive Name of the Band: Night Moves
    Contact: Kathy Barclay 574-320-6004

  8. Tribute bands suck. If you’re going to be a musician, write your own damn music and quit getting paid at the expense of ACTUAL HARD WORKING MUSICIANS!!!
    Did Picasso re-paint a DiVinci?
    Did Ansel Adams re-shoot Manray?
    Has Chuck Palahniuk rewritten Shakespeare??
    OF COURSE NOT! CUZ THEY”RE ALL TALENTED!!!
    Tribute/cover bands are nothing but bad actors and washed up musicians…
    I LOVE Letterman, but a little less after this week.

  9. My favorite band is The Soft Parade, http://www.thesoftparade.com , a The DOORS cover band. The are so righteous. My favorite band is The Soft Parade, http://www.thesoftparade.com , a The DOORS cover band. The are so righteous.

  10. My all time favorite band is “APPLE” A TRIBUTE TO THE BEATLES from So. California. You’ve got to see them. They must be the best on the planet. Of course they have a left handed Paul and the harmonies are voices from angels.
    Karla Ross

  11. The must be having “Under a Blood Red Sky”-The U2 tribute out of Colorado!! They be silly not too.
    They are by far the greatest U2 tribute out there!!

  12. Sorry William, but the best U2 tribute band is Unforgettable Fire.

  13. WANT TO BOOK ANY OF THE TRIBUTE ACTS ON THE SHOW OR THE VERY BEST OF ANY ACT YOU CAN THINK OF? CALL USE AND WE CAN LINE IT UP FOR YOUR CLUB, FAIR, OR EVENT. TRIBUTES ROCK!! RAZOR SHARP PROMOTIONS 207-784-5321

  14. There is only ONE… IRON HORSE (the Worlds Greatest MOTORHEAD tribute band!) The sound (exactly) and the look…and some of the lifestyle! ironhorsechicago.com

  15. SWAN SONG – A TRIBUTE TO LED ZEPPELIN… a band this big could only be from TEXAS!! The longest running Led Zeppelin tribute in the Southwest! http://www.SwanSongTributeBand.com

  16. If it were not for cover bands, the greats in music would not be know past a generation.

  17. Tribute bands suck. Cmon! Go see the real deal! Do we really need men, dressed in drag, wearing womens wigs, and singing “Pour some sugar on me” for the thousandth time, to women who are old washed up cougars, who could care less how well the music is played, but want to relive their youth and remember the days when they actually could fit into a sexy tight pair of jeans, and were in high school?
    Give me a break people. Tribute bands are a disgrace. They actually make the live music scenes worse. Chicago has alot of these bands and it gets quite old. People have no clue what true talent is anymore.

  18. LIVE WIRE- THE WORLD’S #1 AC/DC TRIBUTE CONCERT EXPERIENCE.
    …the closest you’re gonna get to the real thing.

  25. Hello, awesome post, I really enjoyed reading this. This post gave me the kick to try my own article, please check out my post by clicking my name at the top of this comment, Many thanks

  26. Thank you for a great post

  27. Great post!

  28. Good post, thanks

  29. Wonderful to read!

  30. Whats up, I am excited to skim the whole content of this blog and am very happy and thrilled to say that the author is doing a very great service here to put all the goodies and information at one place, i will spread the word on this information with a reference on my site.

  31. Your name says it all, there are way too many original groups that lack in talent and songwriting abilities, but they have good looks. So Corporate hires a writer to write, and musicians to record, they get the credit, then dumbasses like you think they are “talented musicians”. What do you think when your “talented” original musicians remake covers of other bands songs. Only dinks like you would write “Did Picasso re-paint a DiVinci?
    Did Ansel Adams re-shoot Manray?
    Has Chuck Palahniuk rewritten Shakespeare??”. Tribute bands don’t re-paint, re-shoot, or rewrite anything, its all about an authentic experience all the way down to the finest details. You’re an idiot to think that tribute bands don’t write their own songs, many do, but when you are hired to perform as a tribute – they play what they are hired to play. Also, many tribute band members are more talented then the groups they pay tribute to. You have to be able to play well if you are going to have a successful tribute band, not so with original bands (learn 3 chords and form a band). Tribute bands do work very hard, and fill a need that needs filled, if you have the guts and talent to pull it off. As for you, why is it always the morons that try to act knowledgeable about things they know nothing about, and, in exercising your 1st amendment rights removes all doubt about that.

  32. Another moron exercising his 1st amendment right about “true talent”, unsuccessfully trying to act knowledgeable about something he knows nothing about. I guess you probably THINK you respect women to, don’t ya punkass! No one is twisting your arm to go see these tribute bands. Maybe THAT is why you hate women, and are such a sour puss. You have a woman that twists your arm to go see tribute bands. Dumbass.
    You say “They actually make the live music scenes worse”. Funny, usually they are better musicians than most cover bands and original bands. As for talent, you haven’t got a clue. Your head is to far up your ass to even know what “true talent” really is. Many tribute band members are as talented, if not more, than the groups they pay tribute to. All have to be talented musicians if you are going to have a successful tribute band, not so with original bands (learn 3 chords, form a band). Tribute bands work very hard and fill a need that needs filled. There is a market and a demand for them, if you have the guts and talent to pull it off. Get use to them punkass, they are growing in numbers.

  33. Great post!

  34. Good post, thanks

  35. Stars get almost everything made available to them so conveniently but they don’t think about the folks who are out here having financial problems, human beings getting killed evicted rotting in jail whilst they got the whole world in they palm but i’m guessing people won’t always fight for a a lot better tomorrow where i exist at a tomorrow isn’t always promised . And their young children buy it so god damn effortless and even now ungrateful man i’d personally Murder for benefit.

  36. Stars get every little thing provided for them so very easily however they don’t take into account the those who are out here battling, people getting murdered evicted rotting in jail whereas they were given the world in they hand but i reckon that people dont always wrestle for a better tomorrow where i stay at a tomorrow isn’t always promised . And their little ones get it so god damn trouble-free and however ungrateful man i’d personally KILL for boon.

  37. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
