Press Reviews

Tucson Weekly
Tribute bands--groups that perform covers of one specific band--are a curious. (If you don't believe me, check out the 2001 documentary Tribute, which follows six such bands and is ridiculously entertaining, funny and sad.)

Now, I get the allure of these bands. If you never got a chance to see the Beatles perform their music live, a tribute act is the next-best thing, your only option to hear those songs preformed live. And it would only make sense that such acts would perform the music that have such a huge, devout fan base that they'll settle for the next best thing.

For example, Tucson's Wasted Aces perform the music of KISS. There are an awful lot of 40-somthing former KISS Army members out there looking to relive their youth, so it makes perfect sense to me. Our Whole Lotta Zep. of course, performs the music of Led Zeppelin--a no brainer considering Led Zeppelin are as big as they've ever been and don't seem to be in a rush to make reunion tour plans.

So when I saw that a band called Be-Geiled was opening for Whole Lotta Zep this week. I have to admit that I got a little giddy. Really? Could it be? Pinch me, but after a little web sleuthing, I discovered it was true: Tucson now has its own J. Geils Band tribute act! The sheer lack of market value of these intrepid Peter Wolf fans marks them as having some serious cojones. And I, for one, am proud to be a resident of the town that's home to possibly the most obscure tribute band in the biz.

Now if you'll excuse me, I've got to get back with the Dream Weavers, my new Gary Write tribute act.

Whole Lotta Zep and Be-Geiled perform at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov 1, at The Hut, 305 N. Fourth Ave. Admission is $5. Call 623-3200 for further details.

Still working on that hot first release.



Be-Geiled is a high energy Rockin' Blues Doo Wop band paying tribute to the legendary J. Geils Band. This lost genre between the Psychedelic 60's and the disco era of the 70's. The idea came about because of the simple fact that this music makes people happy and have fun. The J. Geils Band is the greatest live house party band and we knew this high energy music in just about any venue, and WOW, what a great time we are having watching fans dance to great tunes that bring back so many fantastic memories.
