The time has come to pay tribute again

We all have our different ways and timelines for deciding life is back to “normal.”

Maybe it’s your own vaccination status, or a combination of being vaccinated and living in a place with high vaccination rates.

Or maybe it’s about the experiences — going to a soccer game where the discomfort was more about being soaked by the rain and not being in a crowd of 21,000 other people, or running your first race in 580 days.

But I saw a sign the other day that surely indicates we’re getting closer to the way we were.

I would have to imagine that being in a tribute band requires a special kind of commitment.

Lots of people can cover songs, maybe even most or all of an artist’s repertoire, but if you’re going to be in a band like Dirty Deeds The AC/DC Experience, you have to embody the performer, to “mimic the antics and appearance of AC/DC in such a way that will keep you wondering if you’re experiencing the real thing!”

And while I’m no expert on AC/DC, even I know that Brian Johnson has very distinctive singing style, so that’s what people are going to want to hear.

If AC/DC’s music isn’t quite your speed, tributes to Elton John, Tom Petty, The Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, Foreigner and Journey and Neil Young will be on offer this summer at the park where I live.

The concerts have been a staple for the six years I’ve lived here, but like so many other things, were canceled last year.

So even though our July 4 celebration won’t be back until next year, the return of tribute bands can only be a sign that nature is healing.

    1. Like I said, we all have our own ways to determine when things are normal again. 🙂

      There was a tribute band playing a few years ago before the town fireworks when we were there. I think it was an Eagles tribute. They weren’t bad.
