The Trippin Billies

www.trippinbillies.com/home

 

bringing the nation dave matthews for close to twenty  years 

Born in the pubs on the north side of Chicago, reminiscent of Luther’s College, Trippin Billies took to the “stages” of these small rooms in the early nineties as an acoustic duo. It wasn’t long before lines grew to long for the small bars and calls started coming in from around the Midwest. As a result the band was forced to rise to the occasion, and they’ve done just that. Having the luxury of living in a city called home to many great musicians, Trippin Billies is comprised of some of Chicago’s best. This talent coupled with their mutual love of high energy performance has moved them above the bar band circuit and into concert settings. Whether it’s a club in Iowa City, a Hockey arena in North Dakota or a summer festival in Rochester, New York or Lincoln, Nebraska, the show is always the same, just that, a show.

Their tour schedules have come to resemble that of the Dave Matthews Band before their ascension to their current status. Midsize venues sell out consistently across the country and the famous theatres whose names were once inked on the cover of DMB boot legs listened to by the band, now comprise the tour schedule of Trippin Billies. The theatres they once approached with trepidation and awe have now come to feel like home.

Red Woody

www.redwoody.com/

Since its inception in 1999, Red Woody has been redefining what a cover band is all about. There were a couple things we wanted to focus on that would separate us from the other cover bands in the area. First…… play songs that the people want to hear. We felt there were too many bands playing solely 80’s rock, or just classic rock. Red Woody’s philosophy-there are great songs from every decade, why not play them? Some of the Artists we cover are Journey, Matchbox 20, Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, Bryan Adams, Goo Goo Dolls, AC/DC, Mellencamp, Luke Bryan, Bruno Mars, Poison, Skynyrd, Black Keys, Kenny Chesney, Petty, the Killers, the Stones…..In a word….diversity. Secondly……we wanted every show to be a party. At a Red Woody show, we want you to feel like you are in the front row of your favorite concert. Have fun!!! We know that free time is sometimes limited, and there are a lot of choices you could make as to what to do with your Saturday night. If you choose to spend it with us…..know that we are going to do everything in our power to help you let loose and leave that daily grind behind. Questions still?? Just come out and see a show!!!!!

Got Funk?

One hot fourth of July in 1998 at a wild keger a guitarist/songwriter, straggler/guitarist and two singing sisters crossed paths only to discover the obvious, we could play music together. Down our stone road we stumbled across a man who knew how to keep it real low, another who could keep the flow, and one with the focus of the direction to go. We were quite funktional together, and so a bad-ass funky blues rock band was formed. After a decade we're still going strong!
