Pornstars Like It Big Casino Royale torrent Music fans are split on tribute bands. Some see the phenomenon as leeching off the success of bigger bands, other see it as a completely worthy way of celebrating good music. I fall in the second camp for sure.  U2 will come around once every few years, but why deprive ourselves of the live music experience in the meantime? I caught Elevation’s show at the Centre Culturel in Beloeil, QC, as a “day 3” celebration of my wife’s birthday. She’s a major U2 fan and had a blast. If “Elevation” got her approval, believe me, it means they’re good.

They make an effort to look like the musicians they emulate, but aren’t pushing it to extremes and that’s a good thing. It’s a dangerous line to cross for a tribute band because once you enter imitation territory, it has to be spot on or the differences will just annoy me. Singer Shawn Brady’s Bono act is great but sometimes came a little too close to parody for my taste, but musically is where it matters, and Elevation delivers completely on that front.

The band wisely focuses on reproducing live versions of these songs, and “Rattle & Hum” is used as a blueprint for most of the classic material.

Online Casino GX620 I liked that Elevation will throw in snippets of cover songs integrated into the material, just like U2 does. The band renders the material very faithfully and with a passion that’s contagious. All the musicians were up to the task: guitarist Kevin Strome has mastered all the tricks from The Edge’s arsenal, Brady’s vocals are on point, bassist Mick Barnard has mastered Adam Clayton’s cool yet slightly bored look to perfection, while locking in with drummer John Johnstone to make the band groove.
