The Rash experience
We could tell you what we think of ourselves, but our friends and fans are far more complimentary than we'd be. Sometimes all we can see are the things we'd like to make better. So here's a perspective from the other side of the stage.
All I can say is that we are extremely HUMBLED by these incredibly kind words. A heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone who has come to see us or taken time to comment on a video.

These guys have perhaps the biggest challenge of all tribute bands! Musicians will listen closely, and know if any note is missing or played 'incorrectly'. But last night I watched and listened as many first time spectators opened their ears and brought out their score cards to judge the notes, the fills, the nuances, and the overall Rush experience. They could no longer keep score because they were too busy holding their jaws closed. Riff after riff, note by note, song by song, these entertainers did just that... ENTERTAIN! If you're a die hard fan of Rush you will be a die hard fan of Rash! When they play you almost feel guilty afterwards because you didn't pay full price for a Rush concert, yet you feel like you just saw Rush! DO NOT MISS THIS BAND IF THEY ARE PLAYING NEAR YOU. We drove 2 hours to see them because they are that good.
Wow, Rash Rush Tribute was incredible! They did a great job, the set list was perfect. All us Rush fans who attended the show kept looking at each other with our mouth open in amazement at how awesome they were. Between The Wheels, Countdown, Digital Man, Natural Science, and they played all of the Hemispheres album! It's a great time when Rush geeks come together, and I am a proud Rush geek.
Who's in heaven right now? This chick! Rash Rush Tribute is so awesome!! They are gonna play Hemispheres and I'm gonna go nuts!!

Just came from tonight's show at Strikes in Rocklin. Only got to stay for the first three hours. Tired wife had to go. 2112 was just coming on dam that's my favorite. As always a fine show full of great Rush songs. Can't wait till August at the winery. Thanks and keep up the good work. Phil
Strikes Rocklin, November 2013
I was at the Rocklin show last week, I thought to myself this will probably suck, who sounds like Geddy Lee? Who can play like Rush? But it was free and close to home so I was in? I was blown away, after they got through the hits everyone should know, they played the songs only a life long Rush fan would know. After the first song I turned to the guy next to me and said "But can they play La Villa Strangiato"? They played it surprising well about two hours later. I was so into it I didn't realize I was singing along to every word of every song. I almost lost my mind several times. Rush is not for everyone but those who get Rush have to come out and see this band you will not be disappointed. I am so looking forward to their next show. I'll be there with the other Rush nuts singing along proudly knowing all the words, riffs and drum beats. Just a hint, if you charge a few bucks to get in you can quit your day jobs. Thanks Again, Phillip DaVoulas

My property tax bill.... too much
Tuition for schools.... too much
Bringing the coolest Rush tribute band to St. Lucy's Fun Fest on Saturday? PRICELESS!!!!
Had so much fun yesterday, met up with a fellow Rushian Kim and her husband, fabulous people! I see many more shows in our future. We totally rocked out. Rash Rush Tribute did an excellent job, they even played the entire 2112!! Thank you, my son had an excellent time.

AWE-BLOODY-SOME...!!!! Congratulations guys. Definitely one of the BEST covers I've ever heard of this song. Keep up the good work!!
Rrrrraaaaasssshhhh!!!!! I finally had a chance to watch this video. I showed to my brother, who happens to be the guitarist of my band and a huge Rush fan, and 3 other friends who are all musicians and Rush fans as well. We were all blown away!

Rush, often times, goes over every ones head. Great job. Very tight and accurate performance.

Everyone else is wondering where your (Kendall's) digits went and why there is a mass of flame where your hand use to be.

nice job on the axe, i watched Alex come in too early in Tampa a few years back and Neil & Geddy had to quickly jump in to cover his ass.. lol!!! wish i could come see you guys, that's a real quality show you put on there, and as Kendall knows i've been to a RUSH concert or two or three (or 92!!), so i sure know how it should sound!! you guys are hitting all the riffs, all the fills, all the ghost notes in fine fashion, doesn't get much better for a cover band that's for sure!!
man, you guys shred!
Landaal Paul Farman
Glad to see ya (Kendall) playing out with the best rush tribute band ever!!!!
In all honesty, you guys can easily become, if you are not already, the best Rush cover band on Youtube. This is incredible! Well done indeed!! I am totally impressed!!
Pretty unbelievable! It is INSANE how good you guys are at this stuff!
This rocks...as a matter of fact, I feel like I'm at Red Rocks instead of in my office... I'm gonna send the link out to other Rash fans now...
La Villa Strangiato—damn!! that geetar player kicks ass too!! he's not just playing the song to get through it, he really knows Alex's sound and does one an incredible job of replicating it!!
You guys can play at all venues with all the signature RUSH songs.."Excellent". 'You Guys Rock"...Maybe You Can Look Into Booking in the Summer Events along the Gulf Coast like Mobile AL "Bayfest" or The Summer Fest At Pensacola Beach, FL. Keep it up you'll be on your way to bigger and better for sure...Beat Wishes ... Florida Fan You Guys Rule...Clone Of RUSH
Wow! I mean you guys sound just like RUSH. ... Really good chops everyone. I'm a fan!!!
