Best Tribute Band Ever!

Last night my family and I attended the annual Concert in the Park for our community's Billy Barker Days Festival. It featured the following three tribute bands:

The Hip Show (Tragically Hip)
Aerosmith Rocks
Who Made Who (AC/DC)

The Hip Show really did do a great job, but I'm not much of a Tragically Hip fan. Given what unique voice Steven Tyler has, I wasn't expecting much from Aerosmith Rocks. Turned out they were actually pretty good. The singer not only sounded pretty close most of the time, he had all of Steven's moves down pat. All in all, they were quite entertaining.

Who Made Who were last to take the stage, and to say we all were blown away would be a major understatement!!! As someone else said, they sounded more like AC/DC than AC/DC has in recent years. The singer did a very impressive Bon Scott, but he was able to imitate Brian Johnson exceptionally well. He sounded exactly like Johnson back when he was in his prime - even in the highest registers (eg. "Shoot the Thrill," Back in Black," etc.). "Angus" was probably twice the size of the real Angus, but apart from that, he had all the moves and mannerisms down. "Malcolm" also had the mannerisms down, but didn't look right with his goatee. Anyhow, if you ever get an opportunity to see these guys, take it! First rate all the way.
