From humble beginnings in small UNLV college clubs to late night T.V., Purple Reign has risen to international acclaim and recognition as the world's #1 Prince Tribute. On November 17, 2008 the group became the 1st ever tribute/impersonator act to appear as the musical guest on Late Show with David Letterman. That show was chosen by CBS and Late Show to ring in the New Year and re-aired January 1st, 2009 at 12:15am (New Year's Eve) less than 45 days later, making it the 1st musical performance of 2009 on Letterman. '09 also saw Purple Reign crowned "Best Tribute Act" by the 28th annual Las Vegas Review Journal Poll, winning 2 awards by both the staff and readers. Most recently, the show won "Best Impersonator" in the 2014 Las Vegas Review-Journal poll, and was chosen as the season 3 opener for AXStv's The World's Greatest Tribute Bands.
