An Evening With

Formed in the Spring of 1998 by bassist Rene Klinkenberg and drummer Terry Groom, the pair recruited Wayne Lukus (Vocals and Keyboards) and Brian Lyster (Lead and Rhythm Guitar) The members of TEST 4 ECHO appreciate Rush's music so much that they only play Rush and nothing else. This classifies the band as a Special Event.

Why a Rush Tribute?
Each member of TEST 4 ECHO is a die-hard Rush fan. That is the primary drive behind putting together this Tribute project. This project has been in the works for 2 years and attention to detail has been meticulous. Since Rush does not tour as much as they used to, and there are still lots (LOTS!) of people out there who just love to listen to them Test 4 Echo members felt that there is a market for a Tribute band dedicated to playing only RUSH. To certain members of this Tribute act, it represents the fulfillment of a dream.
Quality of performance
The performers go to extensive lengths to ensure that the reproduction is accurate. This requires certain technical skills and perseverance. The performers utilize their individual and collective musical knowledge to drive the performance of this band. The goal is not to give their own impressions or interpretations of Rush's music, it is to reproduce it to the best of their abilities while offering a show that is wonderfully entertaining, both musically and visually. Rush fans are very picky, and the show reflects that while doing justice to the band that forms the basis of this tribute project.
Ultimately, the performance is for the benefit of the audience. From the audience's standpoint, they know what to expect at a Test 4 Echo show. Almost everyone in the audience is a die-hard fan, which makes the whole experience much more intense for both the audience and the performers. They come and see us play and have as good a time as we do.
Test 4 echo has recognized the importance of sound reproduction and has gone through great lengths to hire and train a dedicated and professional sound engineer who travels with the band and is familiar with the music and the key points in the show to help achieve the strict standards of sound reproduction set by the band. Providing our own sound technician ensures that where ever Test 4 echo plays the sound is consistent and also relieves stress from the establishment in having to provide people to work with the band to produce the show. The only thing required by the establishment to be provided is the Sound equipment and P.A. and our trained professionals will do the rest
