Katie states: “A lot has changed since last season of The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands… that’s for sure!   We’ve welcomed in 2016, decided to move the show from Tuesday night to Wednesday nights and I’m now a mom!   Yup!   My husband Eddie and I welcomed our son, Hawkeye, into the world this past October and we couldn’t be happier.  Now I just need to buy him some protective ear muffs and get him ready to rock at the Whisky A Go Go!

“A lot goes into deciding which bands will be featured on The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands.  First and foremost, I always think about our AXS TV viewers, I want the people watching our national TV show to have a fantastic musical experience at home.  That means I look at which iconic bands haven’t been featured yet, as well as which ones have been featured and just really resonated with our audience.  I look for the best sounding bands and the best looking.  Geography is important to me as well as social media strength of a band.  And then there are wild card factors, like the fact that while I was pregnant my baby would always kick when he heard RUSH on the radio, so I knew this was the season to find the best Rush tribute out there, and I’m confident Lotus Land will be amazing on March 23rd!”
