Why just see one band, when four will be rocking the Tralf tomorrow night.
As part of their Tribute Band Series, Tralf Music Hall will be playing host to tribute artists Tim Britt (Dave Matthews), Ozzmageddon (Ozzy Osbourne), Fully Clothed Gents (Barenaked Ladies) and Ill Communication (Beastie Boys).
According to the Tralf, “Four of the region’s top tribute bands will join together for an amazing cross-genre salute to some legendary performers.”
We spoke with Britt, one of the performers for the night about the upcoming show.
“This is a great opportunity for fans of all genres of music to hear a wide variety of tribute music. They’ll get to hear music that is intimate, fun, heavy, loud, soft and about a million other descriptive words,” he said. “It’s not often you can go out and see the area’s best tribute artists of such different musical styles all in one night and people should embrace that and come to the whole show.”
Britt is pumped to be covering songs from one of his favorite bands, who have inspired him constantly in his own music.
“It’s great to think that I was picked to represent such an amazing group like the Dave Matthews Band —a group I have followed for over a decade and have attended over 75 shows. Now I get a chance to show others what their music means to me and why it’s so good,” he said.
Britt will be playing a 45 minute, acoustic set of popular DMB songs, mixed in with some die-hard fan favorites to open the show. Tickets are $10 and more information on the show can be found through the Tralf website.
Doors open at 6 p.m., kicking off the night with a band meet-and-greet until 7 p.m., when the show starts.
It may be an eclectic group, but this kind of show is one that doesn’t come around often. “Maybe you’re a big fan of one of the groups and not so much the other, regardless you should come and watch everyone to see them perform their favorite music by their favorite artists,” Britt said. “It will be a music buffet of sorts and I’m honored to be a part of it.”
