Rattle and Hum – A Tribute to U2 are the Midwest’s up-and-coming PREMIER U2 Tribute! Formed in March 2006, the band debuted on St Patrick’s Day of that month at The Record Bar in Westport, one of Kansas City’s finest venues for local live music. Since then the band have been building their following by playing in many of the area’s best live venues like the Hurricane, the Brooksider and Raoul’s, as well as return performances at the Record Bar, including a fantastic one year anniversary show in the parking lot on St Patrick’s Day of 2007. Another major highlight for the band was opening for Collective Soul at a corporate-sponsored event at the Voodoo Lounge at Harrah’s Kansas City in April 2007. They later returned to the Voodoo in November 2007 in their own right.
Rattle and Hum KC are comprised of some of Kansas City’s most talented musicians: Mike Jackson belting out vocals true to Bono’s while playing rhythm guitar on select songs; Tony Trevino’s meticulous attention to detail in replicating The Edge’s guitar; Gary Bertoncin’s backbeat on drums; and Pat Ross’ driving bass. The band are relentless in playing the songs true to the originals with passion and energy, and always win over any crowd they play in front of.
Rattle and Hum are available for private parties, corporate events, college events (both private and university-sponsored), festivals (especially IRISH festivals!) and more, not only in the Kansas City area but also the region: Omaha, Des Moines, St Louis, Springfield, Columbia, Lawrence, Manhattan, Oklahoma City and Tulsa are among the cities the band are keen on expanding their market out into in
