The One Hit Wonders of the 80s Return! 


The Copernicus Center Theater 
Sunday, January 20th, 8 PM 

It's not often that Tributosaurus breaks from our standard, trusted formula. Since August of 2002 we have become oneband, once each month.  When we do stray, it's for something truly unique and special.  

It’s time to bask in the greatest One Hit Wonders of the 1980’s. 

On January 20that the Copernicus Center Theater, we put on our musical leg warmers and headbands to revisit one of our most beloved and requested concerts. It’ll be a full night of songs you know you’ll know. 

There have been thousands of top 40 hits by bands and artists that never again approached the apex of the charts.  The 1980’s offers a tremendously diverse and eclectic batch of memorable flashes in the pan. Quirky new wave, one-offs, iconic electronic dance pop, 45’s with German B sides, bands you’re convinced had more than just that one famous moment; all will be represented in the epic set list. We’ll take you right back to the family couch, waiting for your favorite video to play on MTV in its heyday.  

This will be a long show: a healthy 2 sets yielding over 3 hours of music.  As always, we’ll have every musician necessary to pay proper homage, including horns, strings, percussion, extra guitars, keyboards, and backing vocalists aplenty.  The star of the night is, as always, the music itself.

Old Friends... 

At long last, this December Tributosaurus will re-visit a show we have only done once, in 2005.  It was December then too, and the previous month's Turkey Bowl games had left Curt Morrison with broken ribs and Chris Neville with a broken ankle - but we soldiered through, and it was glorious. We got scared off for a while - we know that somewhere Art Garfunkel had cursed us, but we are no longer afraid - we are emboldened. 

This is the perfect show to usher in the holidays.  Classic melodies and beautiful harmonies that we all know so well, they are part of our DNA.  This is music that speaks to you, your parents, your children, and everyone in-between and beyond.  Their lyrics are insightful and universal, and still carry meaning today.  We will focus only on the pair, no solo material (Paul has had his own show a few times now), but in this case that is not a hardship at all.

From the thoughtful ballads to the joyful folk-rock anthems, from the introspective narratives to the explorations of New York City, we will do it all.  We have a killer lineup of players to bring this delicately and specifically arranged music to life for you, and we cannot wait.  This one is a pleasure from start to finish, and you do not want to miss it.

So come on out and celebrate the holidays with its through this incredible music - see you there!

The New Year's Eve Shows are announced.... 

No one parties like The Rolling Stones, and New Year’s Eve is built for a party. 

That’s why it was an exciting and fairly easy choice for Tributosaurus to Become The Rolling Stones this New Year’s Eve at Wire, on both Sunday 12/30 and Monday 12/31.  We, and you, know that the place will be rollicking and up for grabs from song #1. 

But really, what’s not movable when it comes to putting yourself in a room with the catalog of The 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.  You need to know that our guest guitarist for all the gigs is Chicago’s own Greg Suran, on loan from his usual gig with The B-52’s. 

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 new year with us, and them.
