 Music on the Square


2009 Music on the Square Survey


U2 Tribute Band
Friday, October 2, 2009
Courthouse Square

The lights go down, it's dark and the soaring sound of a rock band bound for greatness collides with the low ceiling of a small club. It's like 1978 all over again, when U2 first stormed the pubs of Dublin, Ireland. But this is the 21st Century in San Francisco, and the band is Zoo Station, a quartet that bills itself "The Complete U2 Experience." Since 2001, this talented force has delivered the visual, musical and spiritual thrill of a U2 concert to bars, clubs, outdoor festivals, private parties and corporate events along the West Coast of North America. Singer Bon almost leads the show, flying high with the vocal strength and confidence of Bono's The Joshua Tree days. The band's primary job is replication, but periodically Zoo Station innovates as much as it imitates.


Next week- Special Bonus Show! Final Concert.

neverlandNeverland: A Tribute to the King of Pop is a 15-piece tribute to one of the most amazing entertainers in the world, Mr. Michael Jackson. Based in San Francisco, the group was formed by local producer and agent Mark O'Hara in March of 2009 to honor Michael's musical genius and legendary showmanship. With five lead vocalists, four horns and a six piece rhythm section, the ensemble is best described as a "Rocking and Remarkable MJ Musical Revue". Neverland plays all of Jackson's classic hits including Billie Jean, ABC, Don't Stop Till You Get Enough, Rock With You and Thriller. Rather than be limited by a MJ impersonator and pre-recorded backing tracks, the band's unique approach is to celebrate the larger than life performances, imagination and infectious spirit of this legendary artist. MJ • 1958-2009 • May He Rest In Peace
