Rush EuCon 2014 update!!! Hey folks, Im pleased to announce that the event which was called Rush Idol is now renamed RUSH FANS GOT TALENT and it will take on the same format where Rush EuCon attendees can put their name forward to play or sing on a selection of Rush songs. We would love for all the instrument slots to be filled however if we are not able to fill some slots then they would filled by our Rush EuCon RFGT house band consisting of Guitar - Neil Dunnachie Drums - Zahid Hassan Bass/keyboards - Willie Winsborough Vocals - Mark Woodacre The instruments that will be available to play on the day will be GUITAR, DRUMS, BASS and KEYBOARDS. Of course if you would rather not play and just sing then you can also put down to sing with a live band behind you playing the songs. Please message me directly to put your name forward, thanks. - We also have a very special treat for you all this year. We will have a very special guest who will be playing a selection of Rush songs along with the RFGT house band. His name is Alex Dunn and is only 13 years old who is a fantastic guitarist.
