The RUSHians are 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. In order to meet the high sound quality, they therefore also work with a fixed sound engineer. In 2017 The RUSHians played at the Dutch fanday at the request of the Dutch hard core Rush fans, which was a great success.

THE RUSHIANS - Keeping the legacy of Rush alive!
