Tribute bands or as some would call them, "cover bands" have been around since the advent of popular music. The tribute band explosion can be traced to the early 1980's with the successful run of the Broadway show BEATLEMANIA. AXS TV has capitalized on the popularity of these acts with their "Worlds Greatest Tribute Bands" show that broadcasts LIVE every Monday night at 8:00pm(pst) this season from the world famous Whiskey A Go-Go on Sunset Blvd. The acts that have appeared on WGTB over the last 3 seasons since the show premiered sounds like a who's who of popular music. The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Beastie Boys & The Eagles are just a few of the bands that have seen their music interpreted by fabulous musicians in tribute to their popular music and style.
On January 13 2014 it was Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac taking center stage in the form of a band called Bella Donna and they did not disappoint. Michelle Tyler as Stevie Nicks embodied the essence and mystical vibe of the timeless Ms Nicks. Backed by a tight, well oiled band and back up singers Bella Donna recreated the feeling of a true Fleetwood Mac concert with the crowd inside the Whiskey A Go-Go responding in rousing approval. Hosted by the always gorgeous Katie Daryl the Worlds Greatest Tribute Bands show is really something that should not be missed.
