South Florida tribute bands grab spotlight while paying


Ticket to the Moon, an ELO tribute band.

Alex Sender, sitting at a corner table at Boca Raton’s Funky Biscuit, is a connoisseur of tribute bands — a phenomenon that has soared to new heights since the pandemic. 

Tribute bands now headline festivals and fill the marquees of local music venues. 

Sender ticks off the tribute bands he has seen: Turnstiles, a Billy Joel tribute outfit. Jade, which captures the Aerosmith experience. The Hot Rod Show, where musician George Orr performs Rod Stewart’s greatest and is a dead ringer for the legend. But he’s not stopping there.

There is Roll the Stones, which performs, no surprises, Rolling Stones songs. And The Boss Project, which of course is all about Bruce Springsteen.
