U2 – L.A.vation

The World’s Greatest Tribute To U2

“More than just another U2 Cover Band, L.A.vation is a true U2 Tribute Band that accurately executes the music and the look of a REAL U2 concert…”

Imagine a Rock and Roll Tribute show, so realistic, it will overwhelm your senses of sight and sound. L.A.vation is that band, and U2 its inspiration!

Based in Los Angeles, California, the entertainment capitol of the world, L.A.vation derives its name from the hit song “Elevation”, the third single released from U2’s 2000 album, All That You Can’t Leave Behind.

L.A.vation has faithfully crafted an amazingly accurate show, incorporating memorable stage elements from past U2 concerts with “spot-on” musical execution, all the while emphasizing the pride and passion of the four lads from Dublin.

L.A.vation has performed in Europe (England, The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Iceland, Kosovo), the Middle East & Asia (Dubai-UAE, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Lebanon), Africa (Egypt), the Caribbean (Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Antigua, St. Maarten, St. Kitts, St. Croix, Grenada, St. Lucia, Bahamas), North- & Central America (USA, Canada, Bermuda, Mexico, Honduras, Costa Rica, El Salvador), and South America (Colombia), with many more international shows coming up.

Some of the corporate events & private shows that L.A.vation has performed for are:
Facebook, Rolling Stone LA, BMW/Mini, Playboy Mansion, Natural Products Expo, NAMM, Mac Mall, PC Mall, Abbvie Pharmaceuticals, F5 Agility – F5 Networks, RHCC Foundation, Radiorama Mexico, GLAZA, Operation HOT (USO Tour with Chef Robert Irvine and football coach Lou Holtz), actress Sela Ward, Royal Caribbean Cruise lines, Celebrity Cruise Lines, and many more.

L.A.vation is available for stadium shows, festivals, clubs, casinos, weddings, birthdays, concerts in the park, Christmas parties, fundraisers, churches, Armed Forces Tours (AFE & USO Tours), as well as private parties and corporate events within the U.S. and around the world.

According to audiences and fans across the world, L.A.vation is truly The Next Best Thing.
No other U2 Tribute Band or U2 Cover Band sounds as close to the real U2 as L.A.vation.

L.A.vation astonishes with hit after hit from each of the band’s thirteen blockbuster albums, featuring crowd pleasers like “New Year’s Day”, “With Or Without You”, “Beautiful Day”, “One” and “Vertigo”.

Lead by Patrick Boudreaux as BONO, this quartet has left no stone unturned to deliver the most accurate Tribute to U2, the greatest rock and roll band of its generation! Along with Bart Davis, who recreates the tech guitar wizardry of “The Edge”, bassist Mikey Hachey supplies the melodic low end of Adam Clayton. And true to his real-life counterpart, Larry Mullen Jr., drummer/music director Jorgen Ingmar Alofs provides the heart, soul and attention to detail that makes L.A.vation unrivaled, except perhaps by U2 themselves!

“L.A.vation: is the greatest U2 musical experience we have had here in Guadalajara, Mexico. The first time was in our video-bar and live music place named: Leyendas del Rock Video-Bar. On May 18 and 19, 2012. The group literally took over the place, performing for about three hours each night. It was so real, that I heard some people say “don’t fool me… they are U2″ . It is amazing seeing the group connecting with the audience so well. It was hard to contain people to come up to the stage, to take pictures with them. Second time was for our annual rock festival ” 1er Festival Leyendas del Rock, Guadalajara 2012″ on Saturday October the 20th. L.A.vation was the featured group for the festival. They did it again! Some people that had not seen them before, were just amazed of the quality of the performance: “the closest thing to U2″ , they said. People from Guadalajara just love L.A.vation and are looking forward to see them again. Congratulations!” – Gustavo Barba, Rock Clasico de Mexico S de RL de CV, C.E.O

“L.A.vation: la mejor experiencia musical de U2, que hemos tenido en Guadalajara, México. La primera vez, fue en nuestro video-bar, para música en vivo; llamado: Leyendas del Rock Video-Bar. El 18 y 19 de Mayo del 2012; este grupo literalmente se apoderó del lugar, ejecutando durante casi tres horas, cada dia, de manera tan real, los temas de U2, que hubo personas que dirían “no me engañes…ellos son de verdad U2”.Es increíble ver a un grupo tan bien conectado con su auditorio. Era muy difícil contener a las personas que querían subir al estrado a tomarse fotos con ellos. La segunda vez fue en nuestro Festival de Rock “1er FestivalLeyendas del Rock Guadalajara 2012” en Foro Expo GDL en Octubre 20, 2012. L.A.vation fue el grupo estelar que cerró el evento. Lo hicieron otra vez! Algunas personas que no los habían visto antes, estuvieron sorprendidos de la calidad de su ejecución… “lo más cercano a U2″ decían ellos. La gente de Guadalajara simplemente ama a L.A.vation y esperan verlos muy pronto de regreso. Felicidades!” – Gustavo Barba, Director Ejecutivo Rock Clasico de México S de RL de CV

“Tustin Ranch Golf Club had one of the most spectacular and successful Music Under the Stars events on July 20th, 2012. The crowd went nuts when L.A.vation came on stage and it started a phenomenal party that lasted about 2 hours. The crowd was jumping and dancing all night to the classic U2 songs that we all grew up with. We definitely will be booking L.A.vation for our future concert series coming up next year. The guys were a pleasure to work with at all times and definitely made my first time of promoting a concert a great experience. I also loved that the band came into our VIP area and greeted my special guests with a smile and stayed around for another 30 minutes after the show. I can’t wait for next year”. – Brian Penny, Tustin Ranch Golf Club

“The band was better than we ever could have hoped for. Everyone was blown away by their appearance, sound, and talent. Bart was incredibly helpful and accommodating in every way. The band came to check out the space on a couple of occasions prior to the event to ensure that all of our needs, and their needs, would be met to produce a fantastic event. We would highly recommend their services for any event that you are putting on. The L.A. Suitcase Party will definitely be requesting their services again at our next event”. – Debra Estes

“We did the sound, staging and lighting for L.A.vation in March in Squaw Valley, CA. While we have worked with many bands over the past two decades, the experience I personally had with the boys from L.A.vation is one I will cherish. Not only are they fabulous musicians, they are wonderful people as well. They were professional, considerate, and gracious. The entire band was a joy to be around and the fans loved the show. What more can one ask for! I would hire these guys for any gig that I was doing”. – James (Woody) Woodruff, President of Crux Event

“L.A.vation was a true pleasure to work with. Their fantastic performance was perhaps only overshadowed by their ability to be flexible. Planning events at a ski resort can be a tough business that many do not understand. Weather, traffic, and avalanche all a daily concerns of our business. When we had to reschedule L.A.vation due to a serious storm the band was congenially cooperative. Bart was the main contact, and was professional and courteous. All egos were checked at the door and their professionalism only made my job as a building manager easier. Oh yeah, did I forget to mention they ROCKED?! Within ten minutes of their performance, in a smaller venue than we had hoped, children, women, and men were all dancing and reciting the famous lyrics of our favorite U2 songs. Thanks again guys and hope to have you back soon!” – Adam Thatcher, Squaw Valley Ski Resort LLC

“I have worked with L.A.vation on a number of occasions booking them at various venues. This band is the REAL DEAL!!! Working almost exclusively with tribute bands, I am aware of most ensembles in this genre… I can honestly say I have yet to find a replica-rock band with the accuracy of performance, sight and sound, even close to L.A.vation. All four band members are uncanny lookalike representations of the band member which they portray. They are always easy to work and communicate with, and have the highest professional standards. Their performances are mind-blowing and leave my audiences shaking their heads with disbelief and wanting more. There is no greater U2 Tribute worldwide…and only a few tribute acts (in general) in their class. L.A.vation performs a show you don’t want to miss.” – Brooklyn Hudson, BROOKLYN PRESENTS

“We hired L.A.vation to perform at a private function, and were thrilled with the results. The band members were perfectionists, and did whatever necessary to look and sound as much like U2 as possible, and to give us the kind of authentic performance that we were looking for. Simply put, they ended up being the most memorable part of our very memorable event. We love L.A.vation!” – Zohar Family, Los Angeles, California

“This years 10th anniversary of 9/11 stirred emotions in all of us. At this years 9/11 Tribute, L.A.vation delivered a powerful performance that transported the mesmerized crowd to a place only the passion of U2’s music can. These guys look the part and their sound is so dead on, it boggles the mind in Mysterious Ways. When a tribute band takes on such a monumental challenge of delivering the heart felt lyrics of Bono, the thundering drums of Larry Mullen Jr., the hypnotic bass of Adam Clayton, as well as the haunting guitar rifts of The Edge, the expectation is that they would fall short of the real thing. These guys absolutely L.A.vated the expectations of all that witnessed their show. It was the Sweetest Thing to see the crowd won over with each and every song. Fantastic rock show, I couldn’t be more satisfied. L.A.vation has a soulful stage presence that is clearly inspired by and pays tribute to the legendary lads from Ireland. A well managed group of great guys that have a passion for what they do. Professional, prompt, and a pleasure to be around. I cant wait to catch your next show.” – Gary Biggerstaff, Founder, Long Beach, California

“We wanted to do something special for our associates and their families so we had L.A.vation play an after-work concert in our parking lot. The band was great – easy to work with, looked and sounded just like U2, just great guys. They did whatever it took to make sure everyone had a good time and appreciated what we were doing for them. We had a ball!” – Ty Bobit, Bobit Business Media, Torrance, California

“It may seem a little presumptuous to call yourself “The World’s Greatest Tribute to U2” but L.A.vation lives up to the claim and then some. This is quite possibly the best tribute band out there.The music is spot-on, the performance is dazzling and you have to constantly remind yourself you’re not watching Bono, the Edge and the rest. Simply superb. Marquee 15 will have this band soon and often!!!!” – Ben Valenty, Marquee 15, Corona, California
