YYNOT, the “supergroup” considered to be one of the premier RUSH tribute bands, has announced “Bubba Bash 2023”, a charity concert in celebration of late RUSH drummer Neil Peart on the third anniversary of his passing
The concert will take place at the Keswick Theatre in Glenside, Pennsylvania on January 7, 2023 and will feature such musicians as Mike Portnoy (DREAM THEATER, THE WINERY DOGS), Frank Bello (ANTHRAX), Jason Bittner (SHADOWS FALL, OVERKILL), Jon Dinklage (“Clockwork Angels” string ensemble), Joe Bergamini (drum instructor, author), John Wesley (PORCUPINE TREE) and Seven Antonopoulos (OPIATE FOR THE MASSES). Proceeds from the show will go to benefit Cedars Sinai Hospital in memory of Neil.
The progressive rock band YYNOT was the coming together of award-winning guitarist/songwriter/producer Billy Alexander and Florida-based virtuoso bassist Tim Starace. In 2015, after seeing Tim post videos of his mind-blowing and accurate RUSH bass covers, Alexander approached him about forming an online collaboration. With the addition of drummer Mike Hetzel and vocalist Patty PerShayla, YYNOT delivers a well-deserved “throat punch” in both their live shows and recorded material with their original progressive rock and “note-for-note” vintage RUSH covers while adding their own swagger to the mix. Their debut album and latest release, “Resonance“, have garnered praise from the rock world including Prog magazine and Classic Rock. The records have continued to sell in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Brazil and more. YYNOT has accumulated devoted fans all over the U.S. and abroad.
