FOOGARDEN PILOTS is a very unique version of a tribute show. In fact, it’s actually three great tribute acts in one package, featuring three of the most relevant and popular bands that sprung out of the 90’s rock scene –
Stone Temple Pilots, Soundgarden, and the wildly popular FOO FIGHTERS!
Fans remember Stone Temple Pilots most for songs like Dead and Bloated, Plush, Sex Type Thing, and Interstate Love Song. FOOGARDEN PILOTS begin their tribute show with an amazing concert covering all the hit songs of STP. One thing you can count on, the crowds will all be singing along!
Following that is the Soundgarden tribute. Soundgarden really belongs in their own category when compared with all the other rock bands of this era. People absolutely love songs like Spoonman, Fell On Black Days, and Black Hole Sun, and it’s hard not to sing along. The set list is very similar to the one that Soundgarden has been performing since they recently re-emerged and began touring again. Their shows sell out very quickly because of their popularity, and their very loyal fans.
And the cherry on top is an amazing FOO FIGHTERS tribute concert, covering all of the biggest hits of the most popular band in the world! This is a high energy, rockin set, and not only will people not want to miss it, they’ll be talking about your event for a long time because of this part of the show. Foo Fighters is the favorite of a wide demographic of people too. In fact, this act could really stand on it’s own at pretty much any type of event that includes rock music, for crowds ranging from their 20’s to their 50’s.
Based in the Midwest, this band is equipped to travel up to 700 miles in every direction, and can cover up to 4 hours of time at your next event.
It takes an impressive talent to cover three of the best, most recognizable, and very different, rock voices of all time. We are proud to introduce Brian Phyll Miller as the voice of the Soundgarden and Stone Temple Pilots acts. He’s not only a huge fan of these two bands, but he grew up in this era and has been performing these songs for over 20 years now. Probably the most impressive thing is that Brian can cover the vocals of Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell, who has a most dynamic style and wide vocal range. And as for the STP act, Brian does everything from strutting around the stage as did the active Scott Weiland, to belting out the songs in the right style. Simply an outstanding front man for those two acts.
The originator of the group is Scott Willis. He is best known for heading up another top tribute show, Sharp Dressed Man, for the last 13 years. Scott is an impressive guitarist who plays with incredible timing and feel, and an accomplished vocalist as well. He also manages the group, and is persistent about continuously improving the quality of the show in any way possible.
Scott’s counterpart on guitar is Doug Judah. It was obvious from the start that he was the right guy for the position. He plays with the same type of feel, and absolutely loves all three bands. And Doug actually is the featured guitarist on both the STP and the Foo Fighters material. Doug is an excellent performer, and an fantastic compliment to Scott on the guitar.
Tyler Freeman has been performing on bass since age 13. He is a monster on the bass. He needs to be to keep up with the likes of Ben Shepard and Robert DeLeo, two of the most prolific bassists from the 90s grunge era. Tyler sound is huge, as he is a bit of a gear aficionado, and he is also very fun to watch during the show.
Justin Bond has a great sense of timing and has a varied background related to playing several styles of music. He studied under K.C. drum counselor, Go Go Ray among others. He’s a fantastic addition to the group
