Sincere Flattery – The World of Tribute Bands

June 5, 2017

Tribute bands are big the world over, some like the Bootleg Beatles have definitely played to more people than the originals did during their career. What’s so great about them is not just their dedication to the cause but the creativity that goes into their names…some more than others!

    One of the best Led Zeppelin all-girl tribute bands around is Zepparella. Sad they’re not even mentioned!. Check YT for their fantastic cover of “When The Levee Breaks”…
