We don't normally cover tribute bands here at Up on the Sun, but from time to time there's an act that's so stellar it breaks through to capture our attention.
Purple Reign, a Vegas-based show which comes to Casino Arizona this weekend, is such an an act. We've got a print piece running on the act, the first tribute show ever invited on Letterman, in this week's paper, so check that out. But, honestly, this video tells the story better than mere words ever could.
