I am excited to showcase KTVA student Adrian Dyer.
Adrian hails from Canada and has a well-known Rush Tribute Band, “Moon Tan.”
I have been working with Adrian for a few years now and we wanted to show you our result.
I also wanted to give you the opportunity to check out Adrian and his band “MOON TAN!”

Some interesting facts about RUSH.
For over 40 years, Rush has been both rock’s ultimate power trio and one of progressive rock’s most inventive boundary pushers. Here are some fun facts about the band:
1. They first got a job to play at a coffee house called the “Coff-In.” While they had dreamed of playing, they had neglected to come up with a name for their group. With no time left to contemplate, they didn’t have much luck coming up with a name until John Rutsey’s older brother yelled, “Why don’t you call the band Rush ha ha?”
2. Neil Peart doesn’t do meet and greets because he’s shy.
3. Both of Geddy Lee’s parents were Jewish Holocaust survivors. First imprisoned at Auschwitz when they were 13 years old, they were separated to Bergen-Belsen and Dachau. When the war ended four years later and the Allies liberated the camps, Geddy’s father set out in search of his mother and found her at a displaced persons camp. They married there and eventually emigrated to Canada. This experience inspired one of the band’s greatest hits. “Red Sector A” from Grace Under Pressure.
4. The clothes dryers on stage are a satire on arena rock trends.
5. Neil Peart travels to Rush concerts alone, on his motorcycle.
6. Geddy Lee was born Gary Lee Weinrib. “Geddy” came from his grandmother’s pronunciation of “Gary” – she had a Yiddish accent. Alex Lifeson was born Alexander Zivojinovic.
7. In 1973, Rush decided to release their first single before they released an album. Side A was a cover of a Buddy Holly song called “Not Fade Away.” On side B was a Lee/Rutsey song called “You Can’t Fight It.” This single wasn’t released worldwide. No record company in Canada would produce any of Rush’s music, so they formed their own record company named Moon Records. (I think that’s where Adrian got the name for his band “Moon Tan.” The single was released only in Toronto and other parts of Canada for $0.69. It was often given away for free. It is very rare, which makes this single worth a fortune today. (I think it is also a lesson for us all to not wait around and kick some butt and get the job done!)
8. Their early sound was mostly influenced by Cream and Led Zeppelin, but with the entry of drummer Neil Peart, the sound became more experimental and progressive, thanks to the technical abilities of the three members.
9. Alex first met Geddy in a history class at Fisherville Junior High.
Lifeson is married to his first girlfriend, and Lee is married to his high-school sweetheart. Peart was married for 22 years before his wife died in 1997.
10. Every 4 studio albums they made were followed by a live album.

Active KTVA Students in The KTVA Singers Forum:
““It’s awesome. The private sections of the forum are worth the price of admission alone. I struggled with 2 different tertiary (university Level) level teachers (6 months each about 8 years ago) telling me my voice just wouldn’t be able to do what i wanted to be able to do and even if it could, the material i wanted to be able to sing would be too ‘Dangerous.’ Absolute rubbish. If you do the work thats laid out in this course, you are golden, I started in March Last year struggling to hit the E4 note in ‘Under the Bridge’ chorus now I can sing this stuff:
Honestly man, you are not going to find a bad review here. The course and this forum completely demystifies every single aspect of great singing. Just be prepared to do the work.”
