Hailing from Central Pennsylvania, Solar Federation performs the music of Rush with passion and precision, tuning into all the fine details die-hard fans analyze with every spin of an album. Formed in 2014, the band spent an entire year honing its initial set list and rehearsing what is often called the most complex catalog of songs in rock music. After only a handful of live performances, the band established itself as one of the premier Rush tributes on the East Coast, garnering praise from fans for its accurate interpretation of the material, meticulous attention to detail, and vocalist Julie Schreiber’s passionate delivery of Rush’s dynamic melodies and thought-provoking lyrics. Over the last eight years, Solar Federation has become known as a faithful tribute to the music of Rush and has earned respect among the vast community of Rush fans around the globe.
Following the death of Rush’s legendary drummer Neil Peart, Solar Federation was invited to perform at A Night for Neil, a memorial tribute concert organized by Peart’s family and the nonprofit organization, Overtime Angels. The concert was held in Peart’s hometown of St. Catharines, Ontario, at the Meridian Center on Saturday, October 22, 2022. Solar Federation was the only Rush tribute band from the United States invited to perform. The band headlined the event with an hour-long closing set that brought down the house.
Also, the band’s version of the epic track “The Necromancer” was selected for inclusion on the Neil Peart tribute album, Songs for Neil: Volume 3, released September 12, 2022 on what would have been his 70th birthday. The album’s artwork was designed by longtime Rush collaborator and album cover artist, Hugh Syme. Proceeds of album sales benefit Cancer Support Scotland (UK) and Glioblastoma Foundation Neil Peart research Award (USA).
