STEVIE WONDER shows for New Year!  Not on New Year's Eve though...…

Pop champagne and celebrate the arrival of 2024 with Tributosaurus in style….like smart, civilized, adults: not on New Year’s Eve. Spend that night with your loved ones, or go to a big party, or just stay home and out of the fray, but spend December 28th and 29th with us to ring in the New Year with some of the greatest music ever created.

A common question to us in Tributosaurus, when we’ve been spotted out in the wild (or the crowd), is this: “who is your favorite artist to perform?”

We have a wide array of answers.  Tastes are varied, memories of these last 21 years numerous. But we all agree that one of the absolute most fun, most challenging, most thrilling artists to become is one we haven’t done nearly enough.  One whose legacy is unquestioned, whose catalog is nearly unmatched in depth and greatness.

Stevie Wonder.

Join us on Thursday December 28 and Friday December 29 at Theater on the Lake for 2 special nights as Tributosaurus becomes Stevie Wonder. We’re pumped.

A child genius whose early teenage era is the stuff of legend, Stevie fully bloomed under a revised Motown record contract that allowed him full artistic control, beginning with his 14th (!!) album, Music Of My Mind. He played every instrument on every track, with a couple minor exceptions.  Thus began a run of excellence that is nearly unrivaled.

Talking Book.  Innervisions. Fulfillingness’ First Finale. Songs in the Key Of Life. Classics, every one, with incredible songs you know and will feel lovingly recreated with passion at Theater on the Lake.  We’ll have everything we need to deliver the goods: multiple guest vocalists, horns, synthesizers, chromatic harmonica, a killer set list that draws heavily from the classic period.

The one thing we can’t provide is you.  Bring yourselves, please. It’s gonna be the best New Year’s Eve party in town!

Tributosaurus Becomes Stevie Wonder
