TRIBUTOSAURUS SIGNATURE SERIES :
ONE HIT WONDERS OF THE 70s

at The Copernicus Center Theater
Friday, March 8th, 8 PM

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

It’s time to play the greatest One Hit Wonders of the 1970’s.

We created the Signature Series to showcase concerts that do not fit into the usual charter, and on March 8th at the Copernicus Center Theater, we revisit our very first show of this type.

The One Hit Wonder is not a rare bird.  There have been thousands of top 40 hits by bands and artists that never again approached the apex of the charts.  We decided to divide this massive collective into distinct eras, making the pool of songs a bit more manageable.  The 1970’s offers a tremendously diverse and eclectic batch of memorable flashes in the pan.

Left over psychedelia and folk from the 60s, the heart of the disco era, the richest vein of art rock ever, the beginnings of the 80s electronica; all will be represented in our set list.  We’ll play anthemic songs you’d expect, quirky novelties you’d forgotten, and flat out classics you’d always assumed were part of a larger catalog, but were not. 

This will be a long, epic 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.
