Best Of Dallas

7 Of Our Favorite DFW Tribute Bands

Cover bands, impersonators, tribute bands, they're often the next best thing to the original act. Tickets are cheaper, and lines are usually nonexistent to get inside the club. Some of the band members even look and sound as if they're channeling their idols as their instruments ignite the stage. Zoso (Led Zepplin), Live Wire (AC/DC) and Strutter (KISS) are just some of the more popular ones enjoying the scrapes of fruit left behind by the originals.
