The Sons & Heirs (A Tribute to The Smiths & Morrissey)
The music of Morrissey, Johnny Marr & co. lives on with The Sons & Heirs, a New York-based tribute band that recreates the experience of seeing The Smiths in their prime. Singer Ronnissey, guitarist Ravi Marr, bassist Fredo Rourke, and drummer Flax Joyce deliver the songs and live atmosphere of The Smiths and solo Morrissey with a startling authenticity. Since 2006 the band has performed everywhere from Tel Aviv to Los Angeles, sharing the stage with the likes of Smiths bassist Andy Rourke and Morrissey drummer Spencer Cobrin. In 2015 The Sons & Heirs will headline the international Smiths/Morrissey convention in LA.

“…these guys love the band, and they’re really passionate about it” – Andy Rourke, The Smiths
"The Smiths will never re-form...so for most fans The Sons & Heirs are the closest they will ever get" - The Daily Beast
Lower Wolves (Tribute to Early R.E.M.)
Focusing on R.E.M.'s early period as a beloved college/alternative live act, Philadelphia's Lower Wolves performs R.E.M. covers from the early years (1981-1986.) A typical set includes album tracks, singles and obscurities delivered with the energy and intensity that characterized R.E.M.'s shows in the early ‘80s.
