For our upcoming show at Joe’s Live on March 3rd ANIMATION will introduce a new “Geddy Lee”! Well, at least temporarily until we find a permanent member.

Joe Rocha – Planet Groove / Sing with the Band (yes, Julian’s brother) will be filling in as Dirk! Joe is no stranger to RUSH music, he has participated in a virtual RUSH band (Virtual Rush) and also performs with other bands in the Chicago area. Joe is an accomplished musician and vocalist, you’ll see. We are excited that he will come in to help us out on March 3rd!

Regarding longtime band member Jay Spikes. Unfortunately, it was time to part ways. We wish Jay well in future endeavors. We thank him for his decades of service to the band.
