Tusk, "The Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Tribute Experience" covers the music of Fleetwood Mac. They not only play the music but they recreate the stage show. Tusk covers all the great hits of Fleetwood Mac, which has featured the talents of Mick Fleetwood, Christine and John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks and others over the years.
The Fleetwood Mac story is an episodic saga that spans more than 30 years. It is the saga of a British blues band formed in 1967 that became a California-based pop group in the mid-Seventies.
Tusk is fronted by the vocals of singer-songwriter Kathy Phillips, a New Jersey based musician with a remarkable ability to capture the essence of Stevie Nicks.
The five musicians comprising Tusk have been making music together in various combinations and styles throughout the years. The band consists of Scott McDonald in the roll of Lindsey Buckingham on guitar and vocals, Tom Nelson as Mick Fleetwood on drums, Randy Artiglere as John McVie on Bass, and Kim Williams as Christine McVie on Keyboards and vocals.
