By |September 21st, 2017|Categories: All Ages, Classic Rock, Event, Rock, The Cave, Tribute Act|Tags: , , |Comments Off on Pyromania: The Next Best Thing to Def Leppard

Pyromania, the #1 Def Leppard tribute, is a perfect recreation of the music Def Leppard had brought to the table. After 14 years of developing their act, Pyromania has made itself known as the next best thing to Def Leppard. Even Def Leppard themselves has promoted Pyromania and their efforts to honor the band. Setting numerous attendance records, the band has been voted the third best tribute band of all time.

” After reviewing our choices, it was unanimous that Pyromania is the best Def Leppard tribute band…”

– Katie Daryl, producer of The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands on AXS TV

Many tribute bands will dress up and talk the talk, but those who walk the walk don’t need to talk about it. Pyromania is one of the tribute bands that walk the walk, and let their performance speak for them. A quote from an engineer sheds light on how accurately Pyromania emulates […]

Desperado: #1 Tribute to The Eagles

By |September 13th, 2017|Categories: All Ages, Classic Rock, Country, Event, Rock, Shows, The Cave, Tribute Act|Tags: , , |Comments Off on Desperado: #1 Tribute to The Eagles

The legendary 70’s rock band, The Eagles, has made a huge impact on the world. From the radio to Guitar Hero, their music has spread across every outlet and into the ears of the masses. The content of their music has inspired the work of a myriad of musicians throughout their compelling history, as well as served as a corner stone in the lives of the average person.

Calling upon the basic inner workings of the human psyche, The Eagles often touches the hearts of almost every person that hears their music. With general concepts particularized for the average person, they can always relate to their audience. Hotel California, for example, is about consumerism in California and the propaganda served to romanticize California life. Lead guitarist Don Felder spoke about it in an interview. “As you’re driving in Los Angeles at night, […]

Metallica Celebration: Masters of Puppets

By |September 12th, 2017|Categories: Rock, Tribute Act|Tags: , , |Comments Off on Metallica Celebration: Masters of Puppets

Back in the early 1980’s Heavy Metal music had evolved to include many sub-genres such as black metal, death metal, and speed/thrash metal. At the forefront of the speed metal movement was a fiery group formed in Los Angeles California who would go on to become one of, if not, the most beloved Metal bands ever! Their name, Metallica.

Dead Man’s Party

By |September 11th, 2017|Categories: All Ages, Classic Rock, Event, Rock, Shows, The Cave, Tribute Act|Tags: , , |Comments Off on Dead Man’s Party

Oingo Boingo has had a rather interesting history. As they formed in 1972 under The Mystic Knights of Oingo Boingo, their goal was to develop a interdisciplinary performance art act. The leader of the band is Danny Elfman, an American composer and songwriter, who has completed extensive works in film scores with industry legends such as Tim Burton. The band put together a theatrical performance with an eclectic mix of ska, rock, pop, and world music. As the band evolved, they transformed into an 8 piece ska influenced new wave band. As they went through this transformation, they decided to shorten their name to Boingo. Since then, they achieved significant success until their retirement in 1995. In their last show before retirement, they looked back at their history and called themselves Oingo Boingo in a fit of reminiscent and conclusive nostalgia.

Now, to […]

Visions: A Tribute to What Really Matters

By |September 10th, 2017|Categories: All Ages, Alternative, Event, Rock, Shows, The Cave, Tribute Act|Tags: , , |Comments Off on Visions: A Tribute to What Really Matters

Visions is a high quality tribute band that accurately emulates the music of Rush. While the wardrobe and physical props are the only focus for most tribute acts, Visions focuses on the music above all else. With a rather sophisticated repertoire, Rush’s music is not easy to replicate. Their progressive style will test even the most solid musicians, from the abnormal harmonic and melodic structures to the subtle nuances their song writing styles manifest. Rush’s music is so particular that there aren’t many tribute acts that honor them, much less successfully satisfy the ear of the dedicated Rush fan.

Rush has some of the most entertaining performances in modern rock history. Their fresh and unpredictable instrumental music always keeps you on your feet, with constant changes and twists that the normal rock band cannot compete with. At the same time, their lively and insightful lyrics will encourage you to let […]

They are always developing their act to make it fresh and better every time, incorporating new aspects of the performance. “We tried to expand potential for opps by injecting a theater experience. It’s not just a tribute […]

An Interview with Super Diamond

By |August 23rd, 2017|Categories: All Ages, Classic Rock, Rock, Tribute Act|Tags: , , |Comments Off on An Interview with Super Diamond

 

Recently, we have had the pleasure of speaking with and interviewing Super Diamond’s frontman, Randy Cordero. He is a very cool guy, and we enjoyed picking his brain.

His love for music started early on in his childhood. His first 8 track his parents gave him was one of Neil Diamond’s. As he grew up, he was influenced by other bands in the 70’s and 80’s new wave age. These influences and his passion for music formed him into what he is today.

His band has accomplished a great deal, both collectively and individually. I asked him what the journey was like to create this band. He said, “ we had no idea we were going to end up doing what we did. We thought it would be fun to play Neil Diamond songs in San Francisco clubs. A lot of the band members were […]

The Righteous and the Wicked

Red Hot Chili Peppers is more than just a musical group; they are a cultural icon. The rare style and technique they manifest has stood the test of both time and critique. Anothony Keidis’s (front man) charismatic style of singing reflects a great deal of soulful wisdom. Flea exudes a fun loving attitude and personality the audience thrives off of. Their style of playing is so unique that few can recreate it at the same caliber, except Righteous and The Wicked: a tribute to Red Hot Chili Peppers.

This is a group of four well established and experienced musicians who came together to perpetuate the heart and soul of RHCP. They bring every ounce of passion forged by the original band, and convey it articulately on stage. They are bringing the fire to the Cave’s world class stage on Friday, August 21st!

Zeppelin USA: A Perfect Embodiment

By |July 15th, 2017|Categories: All Ages, Classic Rock, Tribute Act||Comments Off on Zeppelin USA: A Perfect Embodiment

Any tribute band can add the props, effects, and character traits of the band they are celebrating. However, what makes a tribute special is the ability to emulate and perpetuate the energy that made the original band so iconic and meaningful to the listeners. For Zeppelin USA, every performance is a commemorative immortalization of the legendary band we know and love.

Robert Plant is one of the most sophisticated vocalists in rock and roll’s long and diverse history. The nuances and inflections are so unique that most singers, no matter how high caliber they are, fail to imitate it in the same strength and intensity. Brody Dolyniuk from Zeppelin USA, however, can hit it right on the mark. Furthermore, his invigorating stage presence hooks you in as though you were watching Plant himself.

The entire band consists of world-class musicians, all of which add a special element to the performance that […]

It is always a treat to enjoy world-class musicians in a high caliber concert venue, especially when they can encompass the vibe of your favorite band in such a powerful way. Desperado is more than an average tribute band. They bring the particular energy of the legendary band we all know and love. These talented and accomplished musicians can deliver a performance one holds fondly in their memory.

“A Desperado performance isn’t just about an audience enjoying their favorite Eagles hits… It’s about that & much more. The professional visual impact, astounding accuracy & obvious soulful appreciation & personal enjoyment which is shown by the performing musicians takes the great music of the Eagles far beyond the typical ‘tribute’ band experience. A Desperado audience has a memorable, world class, ‘Major Artist Concert’ type of musical experience that they will talk about to their friends & peers, for years to come.”
