GENESIS RELATED TRIBUTE
In the absence of the genuine
article, some of these tribute bands are extremely good. Try to check them out
when they get to your town! If you are on the fence about whether a tribute band
is right for you, I recommend searching on
YouTube. You will most
likely find clips of these acts performing which may wet your appetite for live
Genesis - even if it isn't exactly the real thing. In some cases, its pretty
A VOLCANO - Canadian based Genesis tribute featuring former Musical Box
and Turn It On Again drummer Martin Levac (who has Phil Collins down PERFECTLY).
(Levac is now on hiatus doing his
Dance Into The Light
Phil Collins Tribute and
Genesis Rewired project with Daryl Stuermer).
DANCE INTO THE

FACE VALUE - Phil

IN THE CAGE - U.K. Genesis tribute band that plays Genesis
material recorded between 1970 - 1980.
INVISIBLE TOUCH - U.K. Genesis tribute band that plays a mix of older
and newer Genesis tunes.
- Fronted by Genesis touring guitarist Daryl Stuermer, this tribute act also
features Martin Levac (formerly of The Musical Box and Turn It On Again). I've
not seen them myself yet, but based upon the musicians involved I have to assume
that this is among the best around at the moment.
THE MUSICAL BOX - Probably
among the most popular Genesis tribute bands (Primarily Gabriel era). This cover
band is actually acknowledged and endorsed by Genesis. Highly recommended!
REGENESIS - U.K. Genesis tribute band that plays primarily Gabriel
era Genesis tunes.
Canadian based Genesis tribute band performing both Peter Gabriel and early Phil
Collins era Genesis music.
TRESPASS - U.S. based Genesis tribute band focusing on the 70s era of
Genesis' music (both Gabriel and early Collins periods). Thankfully, they play
in the northeastern U.S. quite a bit (selfishly, that's convenient for me!).
TURN IT ON AGAIN
- Canadian based Genesis tribute band. They do Phil Collins era
tribute shows. This tribute band does tour
worldwide, so check their site for when they might be playing near you.
