TRIBUTE FRIDAYS dates are Friday, March 2 and Friday, March 9 at 8pm. The lobby bar will open for Happy Hour at 6:30pm. Party on!

TRIBUTE FRIDAYS 2012 will include:

Tributes to Aerosmith and Bruce Springsteen
March 2 - 8pm
$10 - $40

AEROMYTH has become known as the top Aerosmith Tribute band worldwide! Performing all over the USA and International dates such as Mexico, Canada, Honduras, The Dominican Republic and El Salvador since 2002. Chris Vandahl does an amazing portrayal of Steven Tyler, including all of his dance moves, costumes, stage show and amazing recreation of Tyler's outrageous vocals!

Chris Vandahl is often mistaken for Steven Tyler, being stopped for photos and autographs in public places such as airports and malls. Not only does AEROMYTH have an amazing Steven Tyler look alike, but all band members really look and sound like the Aerosmith band members they portray as band members, walk, talk, act, perform, and look like AEROSMITH.

In fact at a recent Aeromyth performance at the Key Club in Hollywood, Dave Navarro was quoted as saying, "I thought I was hearing an Aerosmith Album!" Performing all of their greatest hits, from classic songs such as "Walk This Way," "Sweet Emotion," and "Toys," to more current hits like "Dude Looks Like A Lady," "Jaded" and "Don't Wanna Miss A Thing."

THE RISING is a brotherhood of friends, some with ties that date back nearly two decades. Much like Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, they take the stage more like a gang, than a band. They collectively roll up their sleeves and go to work, night, after night. They were all cut from the worn denim of blue-collar towns, and paid musical dues playing dive bars, and juke joints. What you hear is the musical truth. What you see is the embodiment of friendship, and what you feel is the “spiritual healing,” that can only be supplied by a great rock ‘n’ roll band. 
 The word "tribute" is defined by Webster’s as such: “Something given, done, or said to show gratitude, honor, to praise.” 
Honor must come with responsibility, and that responsibility is to maintain the honor you bestow. It would be easier to kind of, sort of care, or take a bunch of short cuts, and pretend you are respecting an artist, and more importantly their fans. The Rising does not pretend.

Their passion is real. Their talent is real. Their blood, sweat, and tears are real. There are no pre-recorded tracks, or pretend playing. There is no make-up, or make believe voices. The band uses all of its collective power to hold true to the artistic vision, to both honor the artist, and the fans.

Performing songs spanning the nearly five decades of Bruce Springsteen's catalogue; from "Greetings From Asbury Park" through Springsteen's 2009 release "Working On A Dream", they deliver each song with the same power, heart, and soul as Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band. 

C'mon up to The Rising - the "House-Rocking " "Earth -Shaking", "Heart-Stopping", tribute to Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band.

Tributes to Elton John and Billy Joel
March 9 - 8pm
$10 - $40

PIANO 2 PIANO LIVE - The Tribute to Sir Elton John & Billy Joel Show is a night of hit songs, energetic performances, outrageous costumes, and true Rock and Roll at its finest!

Tribute Artist David James (Billy Joel), and Jeffrey Allen (Elton John) capture both artists in their high energy, interactive rock ‘n’ roll show.

Just like the original tour, each artist performs a solo set with their incredible rock ‘n’ roll band then joining together on stage, Piano to Piano rockin’ out respectively to their greatest hits…also adding funny performance bits, sing-a-long parts, and spontaneous humor.

Jeffrey and David through their performance, capture Sir Elton John and Billy Joel through the years starting in the 70‘s to current day. Jeffrey is especially known for his captivating entertainment prowess and his unbelievable recreation of Elton’s outrageous costumes; David, for his dazzling fast and furious finger work showing what a monster piano player Billy Joel really was with songs like Root Beer Rag and Angry Young Man. See you there Honky Cat!
