Biography

Animation has been headlining as "A Tribute to RUSH" since their first show in March, 1987 at "Chances R" in Palatine, IL. Animation is a Chicago based 3 Piece RUSH Tribute Band. They are 3 RUSH fanatics who’s attention to the details and nuances of RUSH music allow them to re-create an extremely accurate rendition of the original trio's music. The band covers ALL eras of Rush, from the first album, to their latest CD. They have opened up for many national acts, including THE SCORPIONS, PETER FRAMPTON, ASIA, STYX, HEART, DOOBIE BROS, BARE NAKED LADIES, and even RUSH!!! (well sort of). Many fans claim if you close your eyes, you would swear it’s the real thing!

Animation has played the Chicago/Milwaukee scene for the past 25 years, nonstop. The better question might be “where have we NOT played”! Come out to see and hear for yourself: ANIMATION-A TRIBUTE TO RUSH!!
