Gorton Center Live Presents: Trippin Billies

Saturday, August 29th at 7PM in Gorton’s Parking Lot

Trippin Billies “The nation’s most renown, original and longest touring tribute to the Dave Matthews Band”-Google

Bringing fans the music of The Dave Matthews Band for close to twenty years, Trippin’ Billies has become the gold standard for tribute bands.  Based out of Chicago, the Billies have toured extensively throughout the U.S. performing at many of the same theaters Dave himself once graced.

Comprised of some of the best musicians in Chicago, (WXRT) one need not be a diehard DMB fan to enjoy a show. The high-energy performance and caliber of musicianship will have you singing along by the second chorus. But if you are a fan of the Dave Matthews band, don’t walk, run to see this band. Relix magazine has named them top five tributes in the country for good reason, come find out why.

“Lawn seats”  will be sectioned off in our parking lot facing the stage.  Bring your lawn chairs and blankets, and enjoy one of the top tribute bands in the country!  We will also be selling alcoholic and non-alcoholic concessions in pre-packaged, unopened containers. Seating for this event is limited in order to comply with Illinois guidelines and we cannot exceed maximum capacity.  We  will have designated circles for your party that can accommodate parties of 2 to up to 6 people.
