Local tribute bands portray their heroes and see a bigger payday

There are tribute bands and then there are cover bands. Cover bands play songs from a number of different artists, within genres or across time periods. These are the guys who dress normally and perform at a friend’s wedding. Tribute bands adopt the style, mannerisms and music of a particular band, and their success depends on how well they can approximate the experience of seeing the original.
