There are tribute bands, and then there's BC/DC. They were born of bush party ashes in the summer of 1999. Some 500+ unexpected gigs later, Canada's BC/DC has systematically redefined the concept of a tribute band, garnering iconic status among diehard fans, agents, and venues from Vancouver BC to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, from backyard biker bashes to the star-studded legendary rooms of Las Vegas, from Nelson to NYC and most recently Japan. While a web search will turn up dozens of AC/DC cover acts around the world, there aren't likely many who've so successfully branded the Aussie band's timeless raunch with such epic rock n' roll fury, while also managing to bottle the essence of a wild frontier lifestyle.

BC/DC takes a comedic approach, claiming the tunes as their own, and to having "heard of some BC/DC tribute band from Australia". They rarely give factual interviews to big city press. Adding to the schtick, the band members all go by comic aliases - lead singer Brendan Raftery's Brian "Bon" Johnscottson paying respects to both AC/DC's famous frontmen.

BC/DC's live show has become a legendary and necessary "rite-of-passage" among their unwavering supporters and believers. With over-the-top stage energy, they deliver every last note of all the classic songs with absolute authority. You get tired just watching them. BC/DC is heavily rooted in the Bon Scott-era catalog (Dirty Deeds, TNT, Jailbreak, Let There Be Rock), but also covers AC/DC's second "golden era" with all the essentials (Back in Black, For Those About to Rock, Hells Bells, and many more). Hey, there's always another AC/DC tune.. and BC/DC always seems more than eager to blast it out.

BC/DC (ACDC Tribute)

Remember the first time when you believed in Rock 'n Roll? "When AC/DC first hit the scene as a bar band in the early 70's, their dirty, mean, pre-punk live act spread from one watering hole to another Downunder like three-for-one pint nights. These days, the occasional overblown AC/DC arena rock show is all we're going to get. That's why BC/DC... more info
