My county cover band is doing fine, but I do get some venues that tell me they do classic rock only, including my favorite ski hill bars. I don't want to start yet another classic rock cover band, but I would be interested in doing a solid tribute band. I'd even do the period gear and garb. I have a great drummer and lead guitarist, and my adequate bass skills already lined up. I just made contact with a classically trained female vocalist that would be available and I think I can scare up a keyboardist if needed. My first ideas was the Steve Miller Band (this thread: http://www.talkbass.com/threads/steve-miller-tribute-band.1132545/ ) but I'm open to other ideas. I'm not much of a shredder, so VanHalen and similar are beyond my skills. I also don't want to compete against already established tribute bands in the area, although the only ones I've found locally are VanHalen and the Beattles, both of which are reported to be pretty sad. My goal is to put together a two hour set of songs, and pitch that to private events or split a night with another tribute band at the local concert event every 2-3 months. So any great tribute band ideas that would fly in the Pacific NW?
