July 2013:

We just wanted to say thanks to everyone who's come out to the shows making this our best summer yet. There have been some nights where we've been actually stunned looking out past the lights to see ten thousand plus jamming along. We were bummed that some shows got rained out, (Peoria, IL) and hope to make it back soon. We've got some of our biggest festivals to come so summer is definitely not over. We hope to see you at the upcoming shows & be sure to check out tour dates as this fall has us traveling more so we may be coming to a town near you!
Thanks again!

May 2013:
Well it's offical, summer is almost over in the Midwest. Yep, just one more snow storm, say a foot or so and then we should be set. !%#*&!! 
We agree, summer can't get here soon enough. To think, just three weeks and we'll be kicking off the summer festival season in Kalamazoo, MI at the District Entertainment Center! We just want to say thank you to everyone for your support and that we hope to see you at one of the many summer shows coming up. 
Thanks again!

Hey everyone! We just wanted to say thanks for one of our best summers to date. We enjoyed the warmest weather, most festivals and largest attendance to date & for that we say thank you.  Fall is off to a great start with some great shows including NIU this past weekend. As you may have noticed we keep adding fall dates every week so check back often. We’ll be announcing our House of Blues shows soon as well and when tickets go on sale. Thanks so much for your support and we look forward to seeing you at the shows and on FB.

 

Thanks,

May 2012:
Well we finally made it! Albeit a mild winter it was still winter which is not half as much fun for musicians as summer. This weekend kicks off not only the unofficial start of summer but the official start of Trippin Billies Festival season. Already a great year marked by such notable events as back to back sold out hometown shows totaling close to 3,000 DMB/TB goers, we see more great things for this summer. We're excited for some new venues but also excited to be headlining some of the Midwest's biggest festivals once again. So come on out this weekend to the 28th Annual Belmont Sheffield Music Festival to kick off what's sure to be a great summer! 
Thanks for the support- TB's

It's finally here! We decided it was time to update a few things. After having the same site for almost fifteen years, it's time to 
get with the times. It is a bit of a work in progress but we hope it will be more entertaining and easier to navigate. 



January 3, 2010
Thank you, thank you, thank you! To the roughly 1,300 TB fans who came out to the House Of Blues last night in Chicago. Happy New Year! PLEASE BE AWARE… THE TB’S ARE NOT PLAYING IN CHICAGO JANUARY 30!  During the past twelve years while we’ve been touring nationally, we’ve seen DMB tribute bands come and go, and almost all have tried to cause confusion by eluding that the TB’s will be playing at venues that we aren’t interested in working with.  We recently became aware that this is happening again.  If you see any advertising for a DMB tribute, even one using our picture, promoting shows in Chicago on January 30, it’s not us.  It’s unfortunate that there are venues and acts that would stoop to that level but it is what it is.  The TB’s will continue to work with reputable venues and will stay true to the DMB lineup and sound.

 

December 28, 2009:

House Of Blues Tickets Moving Fast!Happy holidays!Believe it or not, it's already here! We're already less then one week away from our favorite show of the year. Having toured nationally for over a dozen years, we love playing a good festival in Rochester, New York or the Fox Theater in Boulder, or a packed House of Blues in Cleveland, but our favorite room is still The House of Blues in our hometown of Chicago. Last year, we had over 1,100 DMB fans in attendance and tickets are moving faster this year so we urge you to get your tickets as soon as you can @ www.houseofblues.com before they sell out! The show is 17 & over by the way. Thank you so much for your continued support and happy New Year.Sincerely:All the TB's

A big thank you!
We just wanted to say thanks to the more than 1,100 of you that came out to our House of Blues show two weeks ago in Chicago and again a week later at the House of Blues in Cleveland. After taking some time off for a small winter break it’s great to be back and to see our spring start to take shape and believe it or not start planning for SUMMER! That’s right, as cold as it is we’ve got to keep our eye on the prize! (summer!!!)

December 27, 2008:

Only a few days left to one of our favorite shows of the year!

That’s right! Our fifth annual kick of the New Year with the TB’s show in our hometown of Chicago at the House of Blues is quickly approaching come January 10! This show brings out a great crowd every time. This coupled with the best sound and light system in Chicago make for a great concert! Grab your tickets now by followingwww.hob.com. And while we’re on the topic we’ll be at the Cleveland HOB on January 24! Look for more HOB shows to come! Hope everyone had a great holiday and thanks so much for your support. 
All the best-

March 8, 2008:

By looking out our windows here in Chicago you'd never know that spring is just a few short weeks away but with the setting of the clocks tonight and the St. Patrick's Day festivities beginning bright and early tomorrow rest assured its coming. Here in TB camp however, we've got our sites set on summer as we've already started compiling a healthy tour of summer festivals that we'll be posting over the next month. But before we get too focused on summer we have some promises to fulfill this spring. We promised after the incredible success we had with our January Chicago House of Blues show that we'd add another this spring. We are happy to announce that and more.

Chicago House of Blues
Friday April 18 2008


And after being inundated with emails from Ohio we're more then happy to announce our return to Cleveland.

Cleveland House of Blues
Saturday March 29 2008

More information on each show can be found both on our dates page and extensively at www.hob.com. We plan on tying the Chicago concert in with the Green Apple Festival More information to follow.

We want to make a quick apology for the not so up to date web site as of late. We've been experiencing some technical growing pains that should be ironed out over the next few weeks.

January 7, 2007:

Just a quick note to say thanks so much to all the Chicago DMB/TB fans for making one of our favorite shows of the year such a success. Close to one thousand two hundred of you crammed into the House of Blues Theater last Friday night, rebounding like champs only three days after NYE. We'll keep you posted on our next Chicago concert which should be in the spring. Thanks again and we look forward to seeing everyone when we begin our winter tour in a few weeks. All the best, many thanks and much love.

December 15, 2007:

Hey everyone-

 

We just wanted to stop by and say thanks to everyone for making this summer so much fun.  We always have a great time playing the festival circuit every year, and this one was no exception. We're taking our little vacation (lighter touring then normal) into September so check back often as we're starting to add more dates for the fall. 

Thanks so much-

Trippin Billies

 

January 8, 2007

We just wanted to stop by and say thanks to the almost one thousand three hundred TB fans and friends who joined us for our Chicago House of Blues show this past Saturday. What is typically the hardest night of the year to get people out to a show, (being so close to NY) ended up being one of the most fun shows we've done in sometime. Our thanks to everyone at the House of Blues, our crew and of course all of you for coming out. What a great way to start the year!

The September/October issue of Relix Magazine features an article about the country's top tribute bands. Featured among such great groups as Dark Star Orchestra, Badfish and Lez Zeppelin, Trippin Billies maintain their position as one of the nation's top tribute bands. Pick up a copy today! 

August 30, 2006:

Don't forget This Friday we're heading east to one of our favorite rooms. This show has come within an inch of selling out just about every time so don't wait. There are only 1200 tickets: $10.00 in advance-$15.00 day of. Click on the following link to order tickets!

How do you know when summer is nearing an end? It's when we announce our New Years Eve Show! We're announcing it because we've received so many emails from the Twin Cities since our last show wanting us to come back.

We'll be headlining the Cities 97 FM New Years Eve Concert with Tim Mahoney this year at the Hyatt. We'll let you know when tickets are available so you can join in on the official count down with us in person; not at home watching it in New York on TV. There are only 3,000 tickets available and they are reasonably priced at $30.00 so we'll let you know via emailer when they go on sale before it sells out. 

What? No Trippin Billies on New Year's Eve in their hometown of Chicago? We know but not to worry. It's officially a tradition. We'll be back at our favorite local stomping ground The House of Blues Theater in Chicago Saturday January 6. Obviously we'll be around town before then but we just didn't want people to think we would leave them out in the cold, you know, four months from now when it's really cold.

August 14, 2006:

Trippin Billies is making a triumphant return to the House of Blues Cleveland. September 1st 2006, join us in rocking the socks off of the town that plays home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Click the following link or visit HOB.com for more details! 

In other news, we know you are getting ready to go back to school for the fall semester. Check for Trippin Billies at a University near you!

We would also like our loyal fans to know that the server that hosts our website crashed and we in camp TB are working to rebuild some of the webpages.

Thanks for visting

~TB

JUNE 06

Quick Important Note to Promoters/ Club Owners and Fans! After years of touring I'd thought I'd seen it all but this one takes the cake!  Another DMB tribute band has sprouted up to take the place of yet another obsolete one. While over the years this has happened enough for us to set our watches by, this time the group is causing more confusion then normal by calling themselves "Tripping Billies".  This week two clubs in Georgia actually advertised this other band by posting our photo and links to our website. One of the clubs actually contacted us about the production for a show in Atlanta that was booked by this other band, which was not our show using our photo and everything. 

SO PLEASE NOTE THAT THE BAND CALLING THEMSELVES "TRIPPING BILLIES" PERFORMING IN GEORGIA THIS WEEKEND  IS NOT US AND IS IN NO WAY AFFILIATED WITH US!

Rest assured we're working on resolving the matter as soon as possible. When in doubt.....just check the website and feel free to email us from there with any questions regarding shows. We apologize to the countless Dave Matthews fans and the promoters who have become great friends over the years for any confusion.

On a positive note a special thanks to the 2,000 TB friends and fans who attended our two (that's right two) Chicago HOB shows in as many months. We'll see you this summer!

Sincerely,

Trippin Billies.....the nations most successful Dave Matthews tribute band.....
