Although El Loco Fandango was officially formed in early 2021, the idea had been floating around for some time. Don and Mike often heard “hey it’s ZZ Top” when they were seen together at a bar or local show. On the “fateful” day that Tim Elliott overheard the comment, he stepped up and the trio was born! For the next several months, the guys put together a set culled from ZZ Top’s vast, 50 years in the making, a library of songs. Tribute bands are all about the details, so creating a great ZZ Top show required a lot of attention to both look and sound. Don, Mike, and Tim carefully crafted the tone to emulate the live performances as well as the recorded versions of their biggest hits. When it comes to wardrobe, a lot of time has been spent shopping for fine Western wear, searching for proper beard care, and ensuring the proper amount of “bling” is present on each ensemble. All that, along with the wide selection of matching instruments, bring unmatched authenticity to the show. EL Loco Fandango has been a major success and in a short time, the boys have established themselves as one of the top tributes acts in Colorado. This year’s schedule will go across state lines and get them on the road to being true “Nationwide”. Be sure to check out “That Little Old Band from Texas Experience” at a venue near you, and bring your Tube Snake Boogie shoes.
