has amazed audiences worldwide !
But don’t take our word for it – read the comments
never ceases to amaze me how you all have the voices, mannerisms
and music down pat. It's uncanny! I was standing with a bunch of
people that haven't seen Elevation before and from the opening
bars they were so impressed. Another thing you do is create that
connection with the audience just like U2 does. It's not like you're
performing for the audience... you perform WITH the audience. And
I couldn't believe you four remembered me from way back too. Very
this reviewer cannot compare Elevation with any other tribute
bands, it felt like Bono (Shawn Brady) was singing to me. His
energy was infectious. The band sang all the favourites, "Sunday
Bloody Sunday," "Beautiful Day," "With or
Without You," "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking
For," and too many others to mention in a short review.
The crowd went wild, singing along to every word and then screaming
for encores when they left the stage. - Royal Gazette, Bermuda.
guys HAVE to come back to Orlando - if you don't I will cry or
we will protest. It is always an incredible time at your shows.
are still stopping me in the street commenting on how great
Elevation's Bermuda show was! Congrats boys!!

highlight of the night was Elevation. The U2 tribute band from Canada,
stole the show with a tight, precise and energetic performance.

gotta say, out of all the tributes out there, you guys are by
far the best there is, period. You have the whole thing with
sound, video, everything.. Hats off!
Mark // Hamilton, Ontario
I never thought it would be possible for anyone to re-create
The Edge's sounds live on stage... but you did. You were amazing!!
...Elevation is as close to the "real thing" as humanly
Jeff // Las Vegas
simply blew my socks off. Oh My God. They were the ONE. Lady
With the Spinning Head just blew me away. Mysterious Ways. Electrical
Storm â€“ feck.
// New York
wasn't surprised to see that the singer and the guitarist were
really good. I mean, how could you even try a U2 tribute without
that? The real surprise for me was the rythym section and how
well they played both as indviduals and as part of the band.
The whole band is seriously awesome. Thanks for a great show.
what a show last night! I have seen a few "U2" cover bands,
and I now have to report that you guys are far better than any U2
tribute band I have seen before. I saw a pretty decent one in
LA right before the "real U2" show, I thought they were really
good, until last night! You must love what you do!
Alana // Victoria
have seen you guys three times... it is like seeing the real
Wayne // Milton
guys totally rock. Best tribute band ever.
Wade // Oshawa
was skeptical at first about going to see a U2 tribute band -
but then I thought, why not. I was curious to see just how good
they were (or weren't). I have to say, last night at Stage West
in Mississauga, this band practically tore the roof off the place.
I couldn't believe what I was hearing... it was as if The Edge
was there in person... And I could have sworn that was Bono singing
up on stage! The whole band was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!! What a performance!
like to thank you all for making our corporate event a successful
and fun night. Everybody I've spoken to was blown away with
your show and they had a great time. On a personal note, you're
a great bunch of guys and your willingness to work with us
to make the evening a success is very much appreciated. You
certainly have a new fan in me, and I'll definitely recommend
you when the opportunity presents itself.

morning Elevation - knowing how hard U2's music is to produce
onstage and being a fan from their beginning, I have to say
I'm impressed! When the band started playing I closed my eyes
and thought I was listening to U2. Shawn - you have an incredibly
powerful voice that's amazingly close to Bono's. If you come
back to entertain Regina in the future I will be there!
Guys, my wife and I saw you last night in Vancouver. I just wanted
to let you guys know you put on one great show. As musicians
you guys are incredible, as an act, you are bang on. I have never
really seen any tribute band do total justice to the band they
are tributing...until I saw you guys! We were thoroughly entertained
and really just wanted to say, thank you for giving us a great
Jason // Vancouver
boys you were really good this Saturday in St-Jean... come back
Carine // Montreal
guys were awesome the other night in Regina!
Sarah // Regina
been a huge fan of U2 since The Unforgettable Fire. I've seen
them eight times and I tell ya....every show I've seen you
play brings great memories of the concerts I've seen. One thing
I'd like to say to you all... I can't believe how awesome it
is to hear you guys play Lady With The Spinning Head. You probably
play it better than U2.
Joe // Cleveland
can't believe what a great job you did at Jeff Healey's Roadhouse
last Saturday! I had to queue for half an hour to get in and
once inside getting to the bar took about as long too but it
was totally worth it to hear you play the whole of "Achtung
Baby" flawlessly! Amazing! The Joshua Tree tour set that
followed was the icing on the cake!
Larry // Toronto
not just the best tribute to U2 out there, but perhaps the best
tribute to any act... great job guys!
Rick // Calgary
to see you again in Orlando. The new songs sounded great -
can't wait to hear more!
Cindy // Orlando
I just wanted to say that i saw your show on Saturday night and
it was AWESOME, I hope that you guys liked the BCers and want
to come back this way!
wanted to say how much I enjoyed your show in Chicago. It was
awesome. I am looking forward to the next time you guys play
in the area.
really enjoyed the show! I just loved how you came on stage like
Pop Mart! It was just so exciting and brought back so many good
memories. Everything I had heard about Elevation Canada was true!
I do feel Elevated! Thank you for coming to Cleveland and thanks
for putting on a great rock concert!
wanted to take the opportunity to let you know that your performance
last Saturday at the Hard Rock was absolutely brilliant. It made
the eight hour drive from New York City worth it. You were simply
superb. I have seen several U2 tributes but you top them all.
wanted to say that you guys were great! When I heard that a U2
tribute band was playing in Thornhill, I thought, "Oh great,
gotta see these guys make fools of themselves," and WOW
was I wrong! I've been a U2 fan since 1982, I've been to all
of their shows and you guys ROCKED! Hats off to your guitarist!
I swear The Edge was there that night!
Lou // Vaughan
I can't tell you how impressed my wife & I were by the quality
of the show you guys put on at the Commodore in Vancouver. The
sound was great, the show was awesome, and you my friend ARE
Bono, I've seen U2 four times through various years/tours, and
your mannerisms as Bono were uncannily similar (almost scary!)
guys are the best U2 tribute band I have ever seen. Unbelievable
energy, sound and enthusiasm. I can't believe how tight you
Derek // Detroit
guys were absolutely fantastic! Universal Records approached
me to pass on a huge congratulations to the band for a tremendous
Craig // Milton
wanted to let Elevation know that I really enjoyed your show
last night. You guys really put on a great show. Having seen
U2 perform twice last summer in Dublin, I have to say that your
show is almost like being back in Ireland! Keep up the great
Jim // Malta
the highlight of my weekend! ELEVATION CANADA!!!!! I can't even
put into words how much ass they kicked on stage that night!
The crowd was just insane, jumping up and down, singing every
word, just like an actual U2 show.
Charlene // London
Elevation, we want to say that Elevation put on a completely
terrific show last night. We could hardly imagine a better performance
- truly a combination of skill, devotion and professionalism.
Thank you for coming our way!
Neil and Jennifer // Orlando
just attended your concert in Bermuda this past weekend and it
was an amazing performance!! First time I've ever seen you and
you are dynamic and a very talented group. I was very impressed
and can't wait for your return next year.
Catarina // Bermuda
of all, let me just say that it was a GREAT show & you were
ALL amazing!! You're all super musicians, plus you were all so
gracious & easy-going afterwards that I felt like part of
Carolyn // Etobicoke
guests here are still buzzing about your excellent performance
last week. I want to personally thank you for doing such an amazing
job. We would all like to see you here again and we'll make it
just blew me away! They almost sounded like the real thing! The
costumes were killing me! That frontman is a showman! I could
hardly believe that huge voice was coming out of that small body!
guys tonite were by far one of the best bands I have ever seen...
your energy, and talent was incredible. Thank you for an incredible
nite.... I can't wait for you guys to come back!!
friends thought Elevation was awesome and the best group of the
night. They will check out the website and go see them again.
for the great job you did for us and the nice attitude. We love
working with fun bands. We will stay in touch.
Dan // San Francisco
you guys in Ottawa and as a huge U2 fan I was really impressed!!
All of you were great. Hoping you guys will come back to Ottawa
Shannon // Ottawa
for a great show tonight. I look forward to your next visit.
I thought you guys were tight. Enjoyed the Edge, and his pony
tail cracked me up! Thanks!
quick note to let you know we had a blast last night - and once
again, you guys have a knack for nailing the set list. As usual
(that was our fourth time seeing you), you killed the standards,
but it was the rare gems that I loved. Gone, Wire, Please, An
Cat Dubh, God Part 2, Kite etc, were fantastic to hear. Thanks
Pauline // Toronto
