Dance, music, sex, & romance, Purple Veins aim to re-create the magical power and energy of a classic Prince show circa 1985: an all-out dance party with relentless funk, all the hits, tasty lesser-known classics, theatrical elements and dance choreography woven into it. Their aim is to be all-inclusive, with an age range of 18 to 40 and multiple ethnicities within the band..to both reach his music to millennials who didn’t live through it and transport those that did back in time to their younger days. With a charismatic, sexy and soulful frontman, a huge ensemble (16 plus!) of the funkiest cats, sultriest singers, and hottest dancers Wisconsin has to offer, Purple Veins is THE tribute show of all Prince tributes.
“Brandon Beebe, the Vein’s frontman, doesn’t imitate Prince. It’s deeper than that – he wants to let the spirit of Prince live through him. Beebe, who is usually not a fan of tribute acts, makes plenty of his own music and has a vigorous solo career. He’s showcased at SXSW and shared the stage with Meshell Ndegeocello, Kandace Springs, Zoe Keating, PHOX, Darius Rucker, and more. He puts on a show that doesn’t feel like a typical tribute band – the sincerity, passion, and total control of the music makes it feel 100% like the real thing.”
