WE ARE THE RUSHIANS
The RUSHians is since 2016 The Dutch Tribute band for the legendary Canadian rock band RUSH. The rock band consists of five experienced musicians, all with a great passion for the music of RUSH. The band is able to play the entire repertoire of RUSH so that the set list can be optimally tuned to a theme or event. The philosophy of the band is to approach the live sound and energy of RUSH as close as possible that the audience has a genuine RUSH live experience.
Rush is a legendary Canadian rock band and since the seventies toured in North America and Europe almost every year, from 1979 onwards the Netherlands were regularly visited. The band has attracted a large loyal crowd of fans all over the world, not because of the airplay but mainly because of the high-quality album productions (20!) and performances (> 2.000!). Many rock musicians are inspired by this band because of the great musical quality of their music. The fans are therefore among the most loyal fans but also critical listeners. Recently, the band has indicated that Rush will stop touring and making new albums to the big disappointment of the fans.
We see it as our musical task to keep Rush alive on stage.
