SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The nation’s “most successful Dave Matthews Tribute Band” will perform in Iowa City this weekend.
At 8 p.m. Saturday at Blue Moose Tap House, 211 Iowa Ave., Trippin Billies will perform. Admission is $10 to $12.

Originally from Chicago, Trippin Billies first started as an acoustic duo in the early ’90s playing at small venues.

The group’s set started to become a hit, and fans began to line up outside small bars to view the performances.

Because of this, the band had to rise to the occasion, and the members started to play in concert settings for larger crowds.

They also increased the number of band members, which comprises some of Chicago’s best musicians.

Before becoming an official Dave Matthews Tribute Band, Trippin Billie’s tour schedule closely resembled that of Matthews’ music.

It seemed like the natural next step to completely dedicate themselves to the music.
Now, the band has been touring for close to 20 years.

Whether the members play in a small-town bar, a hockey arena, or a historic theater, their performance continues to stay full of energy with a love for Matthews’ music.
