A group of musicians and singers that play the songs of a band they admire, often dressing in the style of the original band members. Tribute bands have become a subculture all their own. It all started years ago when fans and friends got together to celebrate the music of their favorite bands. Today, Tribute Bands have become an important, and lucrative, part of the rock landscape.
Some of the more popular Tribute bands perform the songs of the The Beatles, Michael Jackson, The Eagles, Queen, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, ZZ Top, Journey, Yes, Kiss, Boston, Pink Floyd, ABBA, and many more.
