Pantera is a band that took metal to the next level. Pantera emerged in the 90’s and came from being an underground phenomenon to multiplatinum arena touring act within a few short years. They combined groove rock/metal/and thrash and created a music that took fans by storm. So what does it take to play the music of Pantera? It takes dedication, hard work and a love for the music of Pantera. This is where Cemetery Gatez comes from, a desire to play the music of Pantera and play it with the perfection it deserves. The band started out as a band called Spine in early 1995 and spent the next two years covering the music of White Zombie, Anthrax, Metallica and Pantera. The shift to a full-time Pantera tribute band came in early 1997 after fans and friends continuously raved about the bands treatment of the Pantera’s songbook, this is when Spine the Pantera tribute was born. For the next three years the band took the Midwest by storm, touring Illinois and the surrounding states. The bands also played a lot of shows in the Chicago area and were even voted #1 tribute in the Midwest by Beat Magazine. The band feeling that a name more familiar with Pantera was needed, the band was reborn as Cemetery Gatez. Cemetery Gatez is back and more powerful than ever bringing Pantera to the fans the way it should be, loud and in your face. Pantera has a dedicated fan base like no other band in the history of metal. Cemetery Gatez is no exception to this and have played to sold out crowds across the Midwest. Like we say, “If you can’t have Pantera, get Cemetery Gatez”.
AD/HD (A Tribute to AC/DC)
AD/HD is a five member band 2 guitars, bass, drums, lead vocal and backing vocals. The band sounds, feels and looks like AC/DC. The lead guitar player (Angus) has 3 custom made school boy outfits and 2 Gibson SG guitars. He plays the screaming Angus leads as they are ment to be. The band is very high energy and puts on the kind of show you would expect from AC/DC. Playing stages both large and small the band puts on the same "in your face show" no matter where they are playing. The lead singer not only looks like (Brian Johnson) but sings the songs with the rasp and intensity as they were intended. The band covers older (Bon Scott) AC/DC songs as well as the newer material sang by (Brian Johnson). With P.A. and lights aboard their 26 foot box truck the band is ready to fill the needs for just about any event.
