Tribute bands - where the name is better than the band

Recommended Posts

I remember WaterOfTyne once mentioning that there was a local tribute act named Joanne Joanne (it really needs a Geordie accent) and I've always kept an eye out for tribute bands with names that crack me up.

I've just seen that a local club (Tropic Of Ruislip) has next month the band SNOG - a tribute to Kiss.

A friend of mine has always wanted to form a mariachi band covering rock bands called Juan Jovi!  I'd pay to see that, I really would!

Proxy Music is an obvious stand-out.

Blobby Williams?

Deft Leppard?

Lez Zeppelin?

 

All real apparently...

Not a tribute band as such but I've always thought my mates band name was superb, but you have to say it with a Yorkshire accent;

An old Guns N Roses band near us used to go under the name of Pistols N Petunias

Al Murray used to play in a Jewish heavy metal band called Guns n Moses.

 

It wasn't very PC...

 

Their set appeared to be a very loud and fast version of Hava nagila...

I always liked Howlin' Wilf, although he wasn't really a tribute act.

'Dorothy's Dog' (although a covers band).

This wasn't a tribute band either but I believe Wilf started in Ken Dodd's Dad's Dog's Dead. One of my favourite band names.

Sgt Pepper's Only Dart Board Band have apparently retired. But some of them are reforming as the Unravelling Wilburys.

There's an ABCD  trib act.  And a Bon Jovial

Dread Zeppelin are real as stated earlier and i have their first album, and it's a killer. If you haven't seen or heard them,  the singer , Tortelvis , dresses and sings like... well , you know.

They cover mostly LZ tracks but done reggae style.  Weird and brillliant

This cracks me up..

I am sure there was an Irish band going under the name "Duff Paddy" which kinda works!
