  Tom Petty This Friday, August 17, at the Beverly Art Center...
and on the 24th at Skokie's Backlot Bash

This summer, we wanted to make sure to pay tribute to one of our all time favorites - an American legend, and one of the great rock and roll songwriters of all time - Tom Petty.

Twangy guitars over rich organ beds, driven by rock solid bass and drums are the sound that catapulted Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers into the spotlight, but it was the evocative lyrics and strong melodies that kept them there. And as Tom moved into his own spotlight, his legend grew, and he took his place among the greats.

We will present hits and deep cuts that span his amazing career in loving tribute to a legend who is still building his legacy today. We will take the stage at the fabulous Beverly Art Center this Friday, August 17th, to bring his music to all our South Side fans - but Northsiders, don't despair, you will have a chance to catch this show in a festival atmosphere at the Skokie Backlot Bash on the following Friday, August 24th.  Both shows are all-ages so skip the sitter and bring the kids along.  You can't lose!

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 20 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 in a long time.  One whose legacy is unquestioned, whose catalog is nearly unmatched in depth and greatness.

Stevie Wonder.

Join us on Thursday February 9 and Friday February 10 at Martyrs for 2 special nights as Tributosaurus becomes Stevie Wonder. It’s been a while, and 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 Martyrs.  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 a party.
