In 2010 a group of Rush fans got together with one goal: to play the songs we’d like to hear Rush play, and to sound just like Rush while doing it.
We recreate the experience of Rush in their prime, with greatest hits and deep cuts for the casual listener and hardcore fan alike.
Welcome to Rash 3.x Same song, second verse, ought be better ... and yeah we think it will be better. But better takes effort and, well, time. K. So we are going on hiatus — again — until Spring 2023.
You can catch Jeff Tuttle playing drums for us one more time at Naggiar Winery on July 16, or wait to hear our brilliant new drummer, John Gonzales, at future shows. We're already having to turn down bookings so we can promise you, we're coming back! Bigeously.
We really can't wait to reconnect with all of our fans (yanno, Rush fans!) again and put on the best show we can make happen. We have big ideas. We just need our brains and wallets to be up to the task. They just might be.
Your thoughts are always welcome!
It was devastating to lose Neil back in January of 2020. And more hard times were certainly ahead — beyond anyone's wildest dreams.
We almost cancelled what was to be our last pre-pandemic show upon hearing the terrible news, but after talking to fellow Rush fans we decided to keep the date and call it a fundraiser. Asking only for donations for Glioblastoma research, no cover, we had a full house with people queued up outside waiting to get in. Many demons were exorcised that night, many tearful thoughts about Neil shared, but ultimately the night was a tremendous, joyous celebration of his life and work. And our generous fans (Rush's generous fans!) ended up giving $4000 for the charity.
During the dark months of 2020 and 2021 we lost members who needed to move on and our website lapsed. As the fall of 2021 approached we found a new drummer and bassist and began the long process of reviving this beast. More "life" happened and we ended up bringing our previous drummer —Jeff Tuttle — back for the first two dates of 2022.
As of this writing, June 29, 2022, we've had one post pandemic show and another soon to follow on July 16 at Naggiar Vineyards. That will be our final show with Jeff. Come see his sublime work one last time if you can possibly make it. After that we will go on another brief hiatus to continue polishing the new lineup. Then we will return with a vengeance. Look for the calendar to come back to life in the fall for Spring 2023.
Stand by as this site is fleshed out as well. As much as I hate those "pardon our dust" messages on incomplete web pages, well, pardon our dust!
