    Here in Chicago I just saw an ad for an upcoming show for "Fair Warning". The ad says they're "Las Vegas' best VH tribute band". I've never seen a vh tribute band and I was thinking of checking them out. Anyone know if these guys are any good?!

    ps Thanks to the jokers who responded to my t-shirt question. I just drank a 12 pack and ate a whole pizza in my efforts to blow up to a "large". [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I've heard of these guys, but I cannot tell you what they're like. I'm sure they're good. Closer to live VH music than we've had in a while [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    I saw FW about 3 years ago and they were very good, I don't know if they have the same lineup. 5150 is the best I've seen. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Man, XL, you missed probably they best VH Tribute band ever. They don't exist anymore, but maybe you've heard of them... DLR Band. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Seriously though, I think Synth has been to a show of theirs recently, she's probably the best to answer this.

    Fair Warning? They're not bad...their singer is a dead ringer for Dave! I think they're from the south suburbs of Chi-town (not Las Vegas...ha!) I have pictures if anyone's interested.

    The Atomic Punks, of course, are far and away better. And of course, I'm partial to 5150. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Hands down, the A.Punks are "the" best VH tribute out there. Although I've seen them on video, I wish they'd make it up to Canada.

    I've seen both the Atomic Punks and Fair Warning. To be honest, I thought they were on par with each other.

    Fair Warning put on more of a show, what with getting out in the crowd and on the bar.

    The Punks were great, particularly Ralph. He played the crowd wonderfuly, and is a great entertainer.

    Both bands were really good, but I don't think I could recommend one over the other.
