The Ultimate NEIL YOUNG Tribute Experience
Hailing from Providence RI, Young Rust – the Ultimate Neil Young tribute experience, formed in late 2004 by longtime local original music scenesters Mike Gendron, Ryan Meehan, and Kevin Ferschke. Shortly thereafter, the band was joined by John Winters, master lap-steel player and rhythm guitarist. The band currently knows and can perform 60+ Neil Young songs, spanning Mr. Young’s musical career and still continues to learn selections from a 700+ song catalog of Neil’s music. Since a teenager, Mike Gendron developed an instant connection to Neil Young’s music and art. It was Neil’s music that inspired him to go out and get an electric guitar at age 15. Since that time Mike has learned countless Neil Young songs, and finally discovered the opportunity to play these songs live when he met up with Ryan and Kevin.
The group had an instant musical connection, and decided they should make the first known tribute band in Rhode Island dedicated to Neil Young. The band is glad they did, as they’ve developed new and lasting relationships with several venues in the RI and SE MA area, who repeatedly book the band month after month. A new breed of followers can also be seen at every show Young Rust performs. If you’re looking for (or would like to come see) an experienced, dynamic, and young Rock N’ Roll tribute band for your venue or special outing/event, look no further than YOUNG RUST: RI’s Ultimate Neil Young Tribute Experience.
