How has it possibly been 20 years since Tributosaurus started?

It began simply: the idea to do a night of music by just one band, with a set list that pulled from their whole catalog and represented their entire career. And then, maybe we could change the band every month. Hell, we could be the Chicago Symphony Orchestra of rock and roll! They’re a really good classical cover band; this music deserves the same respect.

And you, the attendee, the concert-goer, the music appreciator, have helped us do this thing month after month after month.

Thank you.

Please join us for our 20th anniversary concert and celebration, on Thursday August 18th at Theater On The Lake, when Tributosaurus becomes The Who.

The Who is the band we became in August of 2002, so it had to be the choice for this show. It’s one of our very favorites to do. Danny gets to channel Animal from the Muppets and play lead drums as Keith Moon, Jon Paul gets to use his papal infallibility to play explosive lead bass as John Entwistle, Curt will wear a vintage baseball hat (probably) and play thunderous lead guitars as Pete Townsend, while Matt and Chris get to become one of rock’s all time golden gods as lead vocalist Roger Daltrey.

The set will pull the very best from the early Mod days where you can hear the roots of punk, from the rock opera heyday of Tommy and Quadrophenia, and from the classic rock album stuff that still owns FM radio. You’ll get massive hits, and a few carefully chosen deep cuts we love. All the songs will be delivered with passion and attention to detail, with whatever instrumentation the music demands.

This should be a hell of a night, and just like the last 20 years, it can’t happen without you.
