Moving Pictures Details
MOVING PICTURE was formed in the spring of 2012 by Wayne Lukus (vocalist and keyboardist), Steve Roberts (electric and acoustic guitars), Gordon Esau (bassist and Taurus pedals) and Mike Michalkow (acoustic and electric drums, percussionist).
Our goal has always been to recreate the Incredible Canadian power trio that is Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart of the progressive rock band RUSH. The mission is to accurately recreate the music of RUSH, not to give our own interpretation. We do not consider ourselves to be merely a cover band; we are a “Tribute” to RUSH. As such, each member has spent hundreds (if not thousands) of hours honing their skills both independently and collectively, studying every word, note, and phrase of music.
Like RUSH, we are never satisfied. We are always asking ourselves “How can we make our sound and show better?”. Beyond the endless hours of practice, our equipment list is ever expanding. A drum kit with dozens of pieces, multiple electric and acoustic guitars, basses, keyboards, pedals, VST programs, sound samples, etc, have been added over time. We invest, upgrade and update what we can, when we can. The band’s motto has always been “Whatever it takes”.
The Members of MOVING PICTURES are all die-hard RUSH fans, and have been since our teens. We do this because we love it, and we have the passion and pride to do it right.
