Thread: Tribute bands: how much liberty can you take?

  1. #51
    Here's the real answer. If a tribute band wants to make real money, they will play the music as close to the original as humanly possible. That's what the general public wants. Nothing wrong with that. I've certainly seen tribute bands that I've enjoyed.

    But, overall, I prefer that they do something a little different with the source music. (Heck, I feel that way about a band playing their own music too!) At the very least, play some songs that the original band rarely or never plays. Bands like The Bad Plus often do cover songs as part of their shows. It's fun to hear a song that you know but done in a totally different way.
