Tusk has been crisscrossing the country since 2008 as The Classic Fleetwood Mac Tribute.

All five members of Tusk have been playing music with one another over the years in various configurations of original bands, jam bands, singer-songwriter circles, and alternative rock groups. Time, trust, and close friendship have cultivated an intimate familiarity with each other’s musical nuances, shaping each performance with such precision that even the slightest variation, virtually invisible to all but the five musicians sharing the stage, is met with a ‘wink and a nod’, and usually an inside joke. Tusk is more than a band; they are a family.

Facebook Event Info

“There’s a derelict space station near the edge of the galaxy. It was empty until Fishface Pesco from the Gillyx system opened “The Tavern at the End of the Universe” to serve as a stopover for the assorted nomads wandering in space. Some of them are strangely familiar to us Earthlings!

They include antiquated spaceship captains, lost hitchhikers, princesses with wacky haircuts, time-traveling physicians, absent-minded bounty hunters—humans, androids, furry creatures, amphibious types or any combination. They come here to rest, relax or maybe close a shady transaction in a private meeting room.

One night, a rowdy crowd gathers to hear the cantina band. The music stops suddenly when a body, spattered with what looks like blood, floats past the viewscreen. Fishface has been killed! He must have been ejected into space from the closest airlock, and no one had access except the people in this room. One of YOU is a murderer!”
