AEROMYTH – ULTIMATE TRIBUTE EXPERIENCE

By guest contributor: Cathy Labus

“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” is a famous Oscar Wilde quote that undoubtedly applies to Aeromyth. This Aerosmith tribute band is praised as The Ultimate Aerosmith Tribute Experience across the globe since 2007. The representation of the original band that is displayed individually and in its entirety is astonishing. Aeromyth takes you back to the 1970s, and swiftly rock through the 1990s.

Their one goal is, “The suspension of belief while remaining true to the undeniable spirit of America’s greatest rock band.” They have perfected their technique in recreating a true Aerosmith experience down to the finest details. Yes, he looks like Steven Tyler and absolutely walks, talks, and portrays the part like only a rock star could.
