Filling the big shoes of Dave Matthews Band with passionate mimicry and spot-on panache, Trippin Billies returns to the House of Blues for a special night of lilting jams and qualified funk. For almost 15 years, the tribute act has satiated the needs of Dave Matthews followers, building a rabid fan base that other cover bands such as ZZ Bottom and Huey Lewis and the Blog could only dream of. Bravely tackling the band’s signature intricate instrumentation and holistic vocals, Trippin Billies rouses audiences and confuses Dave Matthews’s mom with dynamic renditions of the group’s hits.
Diehard Van Halen fans revel and run with the devil as Fan Halen recreates the charging sound and striking image of the seminal band’s original incarnation. Voted one of the top 10 Vegas tribute bands by Vegas Rocks!, the surgically focused impersonators of Fan Halen transport audiences to a magical land where Diamond Dave high-kicks his mighty wail through eardrums while Sammy Hagar refuses to exist. David Lee Roth surrogate Ernie Berru nails the famously inclining voice and manic banter, gleefully chewing up a colorful stage that emulates the 1983 Diver Down tour.
