Purple Reign Makes David Letterman Go “Crazy”

The really dynamite Prince tribute act Purple Reign kicked off Late Show With David Letterman‘s Tribute Bands Week, and it almost seems unfair that they went first. Yes, they were that good: Frontman Jason Tenner has Purple Rain-era Prince’s mannerisms, flouncy blouses, and guitar face (!) down pat, and the rest of the band sounded pretty solid–especially when you figure that even the most seasoned acts can sound like crap on TV. Unfortunately, the Time tribute band that performs with them wasn’t in tow, but there’s video of those guys on the band’s official site. [YouTube / Official site]
