We love to play music of the artists we admire and do not want to limit ourselves to cover a single artist/band. But we also want to deliver more than just a random choice of our favorite tracks: we want more coherence and offer something more special to our audience. That is why we developed several concepts, generally involving video/multimedia and/or interactions with the public. Here are a few examples of such concepts.
Example 1. Vote for your playlist.
We frequently offer the possibility to the audience to vote, a few weeks before a show, for the tracks they want us to play. In that case we make an online form available with more than 220 tracks we have covered these last years. The guests vote, and we play what they choose, with pleasure! That makes the show as enjoyable as possible for everyone!
Example 2. Dave Grohl and friends.
Dave Grohl is one of the most productive and inspiring artists in the History of Rock music! How could we, as a cover band, not share our enthusiasm about his creations, collaborations and his career (so far)?! So we did it. Dave Grohl and Friends is a multimedia show featuring video and live music. It covers many bands with which Dave has played either as a constant member or as a one-shot collaborator (live or in studio). The list is endless, but the most representative ones are the Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Queens Of The Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures, Tenacious D, L7, Juliette & The Licks. Aside from the music, we also show several short videos (excerpts from live shows, interviews, documentaries, etc.) where Dave and his friends share pieces of their thoughts, ideas and memories.
Example 3. QOTSAttribute
We propose a tribute to The Queens Of The Stone Age -a.k.a. QOTSA- a cornerstone of modern Rock music. QOTSA display several features that are not found together in many other bands: they show a high level of technicity in their play, they are moved by some sort of rage, self-denial and self-destruction, while at the same time many of their songs provide a high dose of musicality, stuning melodies and grasping guitar riffs. They are able, in the same gig, to trigger massive crowd moves on almost-tribal parts as well as light-spirited sing-along moments. QOTSA is like a panther about to leap on its prey. There is plenty of room for subtlety, none for hesitation. Their music is as tight as it can be. Through the years, QOTSA has also invited or collaborated with many famous artists, such as Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters), Sir Elton John, Mark Lanegan, Nick Oliveri, Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), Alex Turner (Artic Monkeys), Julian Casablancas (The Strokes), Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Brody Dalle, Shirley Manson (Garbage), Alain Johannes, Chris Goss, and recently the producer Mark Ronson. Video mixing is also part of the show!
