  This Wednesday - Tributosaurus Becomes THE BAND

There’s a moment in “The Last Waltz,” the amazing documentary about the final concert by THE BAND, when Martin Scorsese asks Levon Helm about the musical landscape in his home state of Arkansas. Levon says “bluegrass and country music…if it comes down into that area and if it mixes there with the rhythm and if it dances, then you've got a combination of all that music.”  Scorsese asks what that’s called. And Levon simply says “Rock and Roll.”

Come join us as we play Rock and Roll on December 5th at Martyrs, for 2 shows as The Band.  For some of us, this is as good as music gets.  Deep, deceptively simple grooves, soulful harmony vocals, layered keyboard excellence, great lead guitar, and much more.  We’ll draw heavily from the self-titled 2nd album, hit the debut “Music From Big Pink,” and give you a few versions from the Waltz itself.  There will also be a couple Levon Helm solo tunes as an added bonus and belated homage. 

 Certain bands stand, even decades later, as emblems of the best music can aspire to.  Come enjoy The Band with us.

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.
