Sorry to use this worn out approach, but thought with the wealth of knowledge contained within the membership, it would be great to capture the collective wisdom on cover bands. Thought starters: Do's & Don'ts Better to identify a small, but fervent niche OR aim more broadly? What are the most successful niches for cover bands (i.e. glam metal revival, Led Zep tribute, 80's, etc)? Play it like the record or put your own spin on it? Songs that make the crowd go crazy? Songs that miss? Who are the best cover bands out there? What can we learn from them? What's your experience taught you?
