On April 27, the South East Association for Special Parks And Recreation (SEASPAR) will present a concert fundraiser featuring tribute band Tributosaurus playing the hits of Journey at the Tivoli Theatre in Downers Grove.
Since 2002, Tributosaurus has been paying homage to a different artist once every month. Their goal is to exactly re-create the sounds of the original recordings as closely as possible, whatever that may entail. Consequently, the core members of the group have become incredibly adept at designing sounds, transcribing performances, recognizing and creating widely varied arrangements – managing to do this with a completely new catalog of material every show. Every month they feature a wide array of guests, including horn sections, string sections, ethnic instruments and ensembles, multiple guitarists and keyboardists, and many singers, both lead and supporting.
On April 27, power pop melodies galore, screaming guitar solos, iconic keyboard parts, and supersized background vocals are the order of the day as Tributosaurus takes on one of the great hit machines of 80s rock – Journey. From their humble beginnings as a prog rock Santana spin-off, to their platinum-coated glory days, there’s a little something at this concert for everyone.
Proceeds from the concert will be used to support SEASPAR’s recreational programs and services for individuals with disabilities served by the park districts of Clarendon Hills, Darien, Downers Grove, La Grange, La Grange Park, Lemont, Lisle, Westmont, and Woodridge, and the villages of Brookfield, Indian Head Park, and Western Springs.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m. VIP tickets are $60, and general admission is $40. Tickets can be purchased online from SEASPAR.org, or by calling SEASPAR at 630-960-7600. Tickets may also be purchased at the SEASPAR office, Anderson’s Bookshop, BankFinancial, or the Tivoli Theatre Box Office, all in Downers Grove.
This event is generously sponsored by BankFinancial and Classic Cinemas – Tivoli Theatre. The Tivoli Theatre is located at 5021 Highland Avenue in downtown Downers Grove.
