With an unparalleled performance, The American RUSH Tribute Lotus Land brings the force of live Rush to life on stage. Enjoyed by die-hard Rush fans, musicians and casual music listeners alike, the Lotus Land experience has been heralded as the ultimate celebration of RUSH’s musical craftsmanship and spirited performances. With the true set up and sound of the Canadian power trio, Lotus Land delivers the thrill that people expect when they see Rush in concert. Their performances have wowed sold-out houses in New England’s premiere concert venues and casinos and their fan-base continues to grow nationally and internationally. From as far south as the Hard Rock Café in Panama City, Panama & back to back nights at the Hard rock Café in the Dominican Republic, to as far north as Toronto Canada where the band was honored in performing for the largest international RUSH fan event, RUSHCON, in 2012, 2014 &2016. Lotus Land has also dotted up the eastern seaboard of the United States playing shows in Virginia,Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont and Connecticut.
Because of their unrelenting hard work and dedication to this cause, Lotus Land’s efforts were formally recognized nationally, when Lotus Land was asked to perform LIVE on AXS TV’s “World’s Greatest Tribute Bands”. Lotus Land performed on a LIVE TV broadcast on March 23rd 2016 at the world famous Whisky a Go Go on the Hollywood’s Sunset strip. “While all the greats have played here from the Doors, Led Zeppelin etc, it was especially ‘cool’ to stand and perform on the same stage RUSH did in November 1974”recalls Lotus Land’s guitarist Bob Chartrand.
Other highlights have been with playing with accomplished violinist Gerardo Hilera (Clockwork Angels –Tour) on multiple occasions in the New England area. Lotus Land has had the honor of being introduced on two occasions by RUSH Icon Donna Halper.
Each of the Lotus Land band members – Chris Nelson, Bob Chartrand and Mark Dalton – has had their share of notable gigs during their musical careers. Nelson has been the guitarist for Herb Reed and the Platters since 1994 and has played with such performers as DD Martin, Anthony Vitti, The Drifters, The Coasters and Jon Finn. Chartrand and Dalton teamed up early on for two ventures, The Lye and Shiny Green Flies. Together with those bands they enjoyed sharing the stage with such big names as ELO II and The Alarm. These seasoned musicians don’t take the task of recreating Rush’s music lightly. Says Lotus Land drummer, Dalton, “In this band, we take great pride in being a three piece band whose performance,we feel, will please even the most fanatical Rush fan. In a nutshell, we strive to be the closest thing musically to Rush that anyone has yet heard. When all is said and done, we hope to bring you the music of Rush with a live sound as big and true to form as can be heard anywhere.
