Hey Hey -- We're The Monkees in April! 

This past month Peter Tork passed away - so it's time to celebrate the group that brought us so much joy and so many great songs, of which he was an integral part.

Maybe you know The Monkees from their delightfully goofy, oft-syndicated tv show.  

Maybe you’ve heard a couple catchy Monkees tunes at the movies, but have never considered their larger body of work.  

Or, maybe you’ve come to realize that behind this seemingly frivolous knock-off of Hard Day’s Night era Beatles lurks pure songwriting excellence.  

Tributosaurus happily delves into all of that goodness, as we become The Monkees on Wednesday April 3rd at Martyrs, and on Friday April 5th at Wire.  

Seriously!  Do you realize who was behind these consistently top notch songs?  Some of the best American songwriters of the time, or any time.  Carole King and Gerry Goffin.  Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil.  Neil Diamond.  Boyce and Hart.  Then, the band themselves took over and churned out some wonderfully odd and unique tunes.  

Tributosaurus will give you the very best of the catalog.  Daydream Believer, Stepping Stone, Pleasant Valley Sunday, the iconic TV theme, and so many more.  Plus, we'll dig into the odd and catchy later era stuff Mike Nesmith, Davy Jones, Peter Tork, and Mickey Dolenz wrote themselves.  You’ll hear songs you love, and maybe learn some new ones too.      

Two chances to join us in celebration and performance of a uniquely American phenomenon, that sold more records than The Beatles and The Rolling Stones COMBINED in 1967.  

We like to Monkee around!

The St Patrick's Day Van Morrison Show Is On Sale 

Our St Pat's Tradition continues...

It has become a Tributosaurus tradition on St Patrick's Day to pay tribute to Ireland's favorite son, Van Morrison.  One of the world's finest singer/songwriters, Van is always a ton of fun. Once again this year, we are paying homage on the Saturday of St Patrick's Day weekend! 

We will bring you music from many different eras of Van's catalog - from the meandering gritty self explorations to the pop hits,  and even a few traditional Irish songs.  We will be joined by some great guests - Kalyan Pathak, Tom McCarthy, the Paleolithic Horns, and of course the usual cast of characters. 

We'd love for you to come and celebrate with us.

Zeppelin Shows are SOLD OUT 

The February Led Zeppelin shows are SOLD OUT.  

Thanks to all who bought tickets, and we hope to see the rest of you at the next one!

Tributosaurus will, as always, showcase meticulous, faithful re-creations of the original arrangements. Hear Theremin, as many guitars as needed, & all vocal harmonies or effects reproduced in style. 

Led Zeppelin is one of the most influential and impactful bands in the history of rock and roll. The blues was the basis for a collision of hard rock, folk, iconic wailing vocals, and guitar wizardry that continues to be evident in the sounds of music today. You can argue, effectively, that Zeppelin fathered heavy metal, set the template for decades of hard rock, and set a standard virtually no rock band has been able to match. 

Tributosaurus will delve deeply into the audaciously brilliant early records, and soar to the height of rock star excess in the famed mid 70’s period, all while striving to capture the majesty and epic beauty of the songs as originally recorded.
