Help Youth Services with Tributosaurus 

Come out Saturday night July 24th for an extremely rare Tributosaurus live show: 2 bands in one night! 

Our good friends at Youth Services ( do important work, meeting the mental health support needs of the young.  Their mission, since 1992, is to foster the social and emotional well being of children, and they continue to do so with a therapeutic, activity-based model. 

This weekend, we’re headlining their summer concert at the North Shore Center For The Performing Arts in Skokie.  It’s an outdoor event space in the back parking lot, where you may have seen us last October doing the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young. 

For this event we’ll do two sets, one becoming Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, and one in which we become The Rolling Stones.  We’ve previously done sold out shows as these artists earlier in the summer, so here is a unique chance to catch a set from each, while supporting a great cause as well! 

Join us this Saturday night in the great outdoors of Skokie, for Petty, the Stones, and to do some good.

Help us help Tim Fox with a Steely Dan show in late July 

The late show featuring us and Psychles is now SOLD OUT.

Please don't let that stop you from contributing here:

Sometimes terrible things befall the best people.  Sadly, this is the case with our friend, Tim Fox.  Many of you will know Tim as a fantastic bass player and musician, and many will know his wife, Erica Lessie, who frequently joins us on the Cello, or their son, Augie, who has been spotted doing dance moves with us at the Beverly Arts Center.  Right now Tim is in a battle with Cancer, and he badly needs our help.  Being a musician is a wonderful profession in many respects, but the benefits are severely lacking, and an illness like this can be devastating.

Tim is also an extremely schooled instrumentalist, and in keeping with that level of excellence, we are preparing to do a 90 minute set of Steely Dan's great songs.  We will be joined by a slew of guests who are on board to help, and we hope to be joined by you as well.  It's an all-day affair, and lots of great acts will be appearing throughout the day before our show at 8pm, and following us will be Chris Siebold and Psychles.  If you are interested in attending early, check out the other links on the Martyrs' calendar.  Please contribute - it matters.

Tributosaurus Returns to Live performance - and what better way than to pay tribute to The Rolling Stones!

We don’t need to offer you biographical or historical context here; THEY’RE THE ROLLING STONES. What you need to know is we’ll have a killer horn section to handle, among other things, some Exile On Main Street staples.  You need to know we’ll delve back to the beginnings of their recordings, and make it through and past some disco era dance killers, and everything in-between.  

You need to know that like many of you, we have this music traveling through our veins.  And maybe you’ve noticed this; when we really, deeply know the material…..the satisfaction of the experience reachers higher levels. 

It will be a thrill to channel The Rolling Stones, both spiritually and sonically.  Come celebrate the return of live concerts with us, and them. 

Tributosaurus Becomes THE ROLLING STONES
