Top 15 Tribute Bands

Here are some bands who can rock out the classics when those rock heroes aren't available
Australian Pink Floyd Show
-Obviously, you know whose music these guys cover. These guys have dug a serious career out for themselves, almost exactly duplicating the complex lighting rigs, and their music. If their wish was to meet the actual Pink Floyd, their wish was granted, as they were asked to play at David Gilmour's 50th birthday party

-Led Zeppelin cover band. It's been said many times, many ways that Led Zeppelin is the all-time influence on almost every rock band out there. But, it's difficult to copy Robert Plant's wailing stage vocals and Jimmy Page's impressive guitar riffs. These guys have been able to proudly claim their title as the ultimate Led Zeppelin tribute band.  They are able to accurately capture the tight, but loose spirit of the band and also the music

Live Wire
-AC/DC tribute band. Live Wire, based out of New York, these guys have come very close to sounding like the real, authentic Australian rockers, playing on three continents, being on CBS This Morning and even getting their music on XM satellite radio. They are the only and I mean ONLY AC/DC tribute band to be featured on the real AC/DC's official site, as well as their Facebook page

The Atomic Punks
-These guys pay homage to early Van Halen, as in David Lee Roth, not Sammy Hagar, which in my opinion, is a little sad and a little offensive because Sammy Hagar was the front man too, not just David Lee Roth. It's said these guys are the best in Van Halen music, sometimes even better than the real band. Michael Anthony has jammed on stage with them

-Kiss cover band. Aptly named after the song of the same name, Strutter formed in 1988, during the period of Kiss' no makeup, pop era. This band has spent more than 20 years recreating the sound, look of Kiss

Just Like Priest
-Judas Priest cover band. These guys are a tribute band from Southern California that take their name from a remark from their first show, when an audience member said "I don't know who you are, but you sound just like Priest." The name fits, as front man Frank Casciato hits those wailing, high pitched vocals like Rob Halford himself. While guitarists Kevin Pittsey and Brian Olsen play "Dueling Guitars" just like K.K. Downing and Glenn Tipton themselves
