Zed Leppelin. ZZ Trip. Fool Fighters.
These band names may sound almost familiar. That's because they're cover bands who specialize in imitating popular big-name acts, even down to the name.
Those acts and more are playing at Bayfront Park's Tribute Fest this weekend. The festival was set up to raise money and awareness for homeless veterans. The proceeds go to the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans.
"A lot of our veterans that have fought for our country and done many things for us don't get a lot in return," said Lars Lasky, the Tribute Fest stage manager. "This is our way of giving back to them."
