Meet the Band
We are a collective of like-minded artists pursuing passion projects and paying homage to our favorite bands with our own original flare. We are the Tin Can Tourist Band!
I was looking for guys that liked the same music that I did. Who knew we would hit it off so well, we'd eventually form a production company?

Four guys. Five Tribute Sets. Endless Beats.
The Budding Hollies is a tribute band to the great Buddy Holly. If Elvis was the King, then Buddy must've been the Prime Minister of Rock and Roll. One of the first to wear the hats of songwriter, producer and musician, he was taken away much too young.
The Sons of Beetles pays tribute to The Beatles, arguably the best band ever. The guys grew up on their music, and their love for them is genuine. A little known fact: "The Beatles were heavily influenced by Buddy Holly, so it's only fitting they were the second band we chose to pay tribute." - Guerzo
Following the death of Tom Petty, Steady Petty was formed to perform on the one year anniversary of his passing. "We all are crazy about his music and are proud to honor this great Floridian." - Copeland
Pix Ramona immortalizes the angst-driven tones of 2 of the most influential indie/punk bands, the Pixies and Ramones.
"This was the first of the tribute bands we put together, so it has a special place in my heart. It's a great band for a raucous late-night set." - Guerzo
Cheap Grift is the newest tribute set added to our repertoire, honoring the power pop rock of Cheap Trick, with emphasis on their early hits like Surrender and I Want You to Want Me.
"I think Cheap Trick's "Live at Budokan" is one of the finest live albums ever made. You can really feel their energy!" - Schuckel
