Tribute acts give fans the closest experience to seeing their favorite bands, unlike taxidermy acts, which deliver the looks, but not the notes. Take the stuffing out of your evening with this GrouponLive deal to see Trippin Billies at Viper Alley in Lincolnshire. For $6, you get one general-admission ticket for Friday, March 9, at 9 p.m. (up to a $16.81 value, including all ticketing fees). Doors open at 7 p.m.
Filling the big shoes of the Dave Matthews Band with passionate mimicry and spot-on panache, Trippin Billies claims the intimate Viper Alley 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.
Before the Billies trip onto the stage, Jackpot Donnie breezes through an original set of reggae-infused rock. Seventeen high-definition monitors throughout the venue ensure fans don't miss a single cut while marveling at the fossilized guitar hidden under the stage or dining on brick-oven pizzas and Angus sliders (not included with this Groupon) at Viper Alley's Reverb Kitchen.
