Sheridan Opera House: This Must Be The Band, A Talking Heads Tribute Band

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE March 21, 2012 This Must Be The Band A Talking Heads Tribute Band Sheridan Opera House, Telluride, Colo. Saturday, April 7, 2012 at 8 p.m. To celebrate the end of the 2011/2012 ski season, the Sheridan Arts Foundation proudly presents This Must Be The Band, A Talking Heads Tribute Band, at the historic Sheridan Opera House (110 North Oak St.) in Telluride, Colo. on Saturday, April 7 at 8 p.m. Chicago’s only, and therefore best, Talking Heads Tribute Band, This Must Be The Band is coming to Telluride to Burn Down the House playing the very best of everyone’s favorite psychedelic pop rock band. Tickets are $20 for general admission (with a $3 per ticket processing fee), and the theater will have partial seats in. The show starts at 8 p.m. and doors open at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available online at or by calling (970) 728-6363. The band formed in May 2007 on Craigslist and played the coveted pizza joint circuit, the most notable of which was the famous Piece Pizza in Chicago’s Wicker Park. Since then they have expanded east to New York City and west to Boise, Idaho. They have two main dishes on their menu: the first is a succulent “All-Request Show,” with a generous helping of audience participation, flavored slightly by improvisation. The second is hailed “Stop Making Sense Re-Creation,” where they perform note-for-note and prop-for-prop the famous Talking Heads concert film from 1984. In 2011, they performed this show to a sold-out crowd at the Vic Theatre in Chicago. The April 7 show will feature a variety of the best of the Talking Heads and the band will take requests from the audience. This Must Be The Band is extremely happy to play Talking Heads music night after night because the music is just that much fun. Not only has the lead singer, Charlie Otto, has been called “the illegitimate son of David Byrne,” but the band boasts its very own Tina Weymouth (Jamie Jay), Bernie Worrell (Jim Dinou), Adrian Below (covered by both Otto and Dinou) and Ednah Holt (Kasey Foster).
