The Sheridan Arts Foundation and Cornerhouse Grille present:

The First Annual Telluride Tribute Fest

March 14-15, 2014, 8:30 p.m. nightly 

With bands paying tribute to Queen, Led Zeppelin, Sublime & No Doubt



The Sheridan Arts Foundation and Cornerhouse Grille are proud to announce Telluride’s newest festival, the First Annual Telluride Tribute Fest, featuring three nights of live music at the Sheridan Opera House paying tribute to some of rock music’s biggest bands! 


Individual tickets and three-day general admission and VIP passes are available for sale through  


The Tribute Fest kicks off Thursday, March 13 with Zoso, the Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience. Tickets are $25 general admission on the floor and $65 for the balcony. Zoso formed in 1995 to perform the most accurate and captivating Led Zeppelin show since the real thing. For Zoso, it’s much more than just being a tribute. It’s about touching a golden era in music. Zoso embodies Page, Plant, Bonham and Hones in their spirit, tightly-would talent and authenticity. 


Each band member has been carefully selected to portray both the appearance and playing styles of their Led Zeppelin counterparts and in 18 successful years of touring, they have perfected their art. 


Friday night pays tribute to two of the 90s’ most iconic bands, with No Duh, the No Doubt Tribute Band, and 40 Oz. to Freedom, the Sublime Tribute Band. Tickets are $30 general admission on the floor and $65 in the balcony. 


No Duh is not just the best tribute to No Doubt & Gwen Stefani, they’re one of the best tribute acts in the world, it’s not just great music, it’s a complete, high energy, amusing, audio-visual explosion.  No Duh mixes the experience and energy of a live No Doubt concert with nostalgic visuals, stylings and props of their music videos, complete with costume changes and even some humor. 


Founded by longtime friends Dane Scott and Jeremy Miller, 40 Oz. to Freedom won the San Diego Music Award for best tribute band in 2010! Scott’s soulful voice and face melting guitar riffs contribute to an energetic show reminiscent of Bradley Nowell himself. Miller’s energetic stage presence and knowledge of the genre help the band truly channel Sublime in all its glory.  


The festival closes with Gary Mullen and the Works: One Night of Queen! Tickets for this performance are $35 GA on the floor and $65 VIP in the balcony. 


Gary Mullen has been a lifelong Queen fan and has always been a keen singer. His career as Freddie Mercury started in 2000 and ever since, Mullen has gained notoriety for his real life portrayal of Queen’s superstar front man. Playing such classics as “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Will Rock You,” “Killer Queen,” Fat Bottomed Girls” and “Another One Bites the Dust,” their on-stage show uses sophisticated lighting and the same onstage theatrics that fans loved from Queen. 


Three day VIP and General Admission passes are available for the First Annual Telluride Tribute Festival. VIP passes offer Balcony Access Seats, free beer each night, festival T-shirts and an exclusive meet and greet with the performances one night of the festival. 


The festival is co-produced by Cornerhouse Grille and the Sheridan Arts Foundation, the non-profit that owns and operates the historic Sheridan Opera House. If you or your business is interested in sponsoring this new event, please call 970-728-6363 ext. 1.
