A Little More About the Bands:
Since 2003, Illinois-based singer-songwriter Dan Hubbard has released eight albums and toured extensively through the Midwest and both coasts. In the process, he’s shared the stage with some of the industry’s top artists, built a strong fan base, become a refined songwriter and earned critical acclaim for his efforts. With his foundation in the classic sounds of Tom Petty, Van Morrison, Neil Young and Jackson Browne, Hubbard carries songs of love, loss and soul searching. Like the influential front-men before him, Hubbard delivers a message that people can relate to in good times and bad.
In 2015 Hubbard collaborated with Nashville producer and 3-time Grammy Nominee Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo) to record his 4th solo album. The self-titled Dan Hubbard was released in February of 2016, and Dan is currently touring nationally in support of the record.
Bringing fans the music of The Dave Matthews Band for close to twenty years, Trippin’ Billies has become the gold standard for tribute bands. Based out of Chicago, the Billies have toured extensively throughout the U.S. performing at many of the same theaters Dave himself once graced.
Comprised of some of the best musicians in Chicago, (WXRT) one need not be a diehard DMB fan to enjoy a show. The high-energy performance and caliber of musicianship will have you singing along by the second chorus. But if you are a fan of the Dave Matthews band, don’t walk, run to see this band. Relix magazine has named them top five tributes in the country for good reason, come find out why.
The music of Zac Brown Band brought to you by some of the Midwest’s best! Whiskey’s Gone is raising the bar for tribute bands in musicality and showmanship to create an experience to remember. Calling Peoria, IL their home, Whiskey’s Gone is hitting the ground running in 2016. They are playing the area’s most popular venues and festivals and will continue to gain momentum with every appearance.
