When the group of six or so musicians tossed around the idea of playing a tribute to Fleetwood Mac, tackling the Rumours album was a unanimous decision. “It’s simply one of the most important records in my life,” says Danny Flanigan, who “plays” the Lindsey Buckingham role in the tribute band. “We listened to it daily at my house growing up.” The group — made of local musicians who are solo or in a band of their own, including Kimmet Cantwell, Ray Rizzo and Natalie Bajandas — plays the songs from the 1977 record in order and in its entirety, as well as a half-dozen other Fleetwood favorites. “Playing these songs is a blast, because the songs themselves are so good,” Flanigan says. “And they trigger so many memories.” Those Damn Torpedoes, a Tom Petty tribute band, opens. —Sara Havens
