Fuse Box is a high voltage tribute to the Bon Scott era of AC/DC. The band is a full true-to-style tribute, from the authentic appearance and attire of the members to the high energy stage presentation and performance that mimics a late 70′s AC/DC concert. Not just an AC/DC cover band, our aim is to present ourselves as AC/DC in every aspect. We can play sets from 45 minutes up to 1.5 hours as needed, and tailor each show for the particular requirements and circumstances. Extended shows beyond 1.5 hours can be arranged in certain situations.
The band was formed in early 2012, and is made up of Fresno music scene veterans that just happen to have a common fanaticism for all things AC/DC, as well as the ability to nail the feel of the music to perfection. Our frontman (Bon Scott), is the current frontman for the local band Vinyl and has been performing onstage for upwards of thirty years; our Angus has been a study of the real Angus and a performing guitarist since his teens, and has the dynamic style and frenetic energy of the rock guitar icon down to a science; and the thunderous rhythm section of Malcolm, Cliff and Phil are also all long-time local scene musicians that have spent years in performing covers and originals projects.
Fuse Box brings a professional attitude and professional equipment, to provide a high quality show night in and night out. We maintain an active online presence, including website and Facebook page, and each member actively promotes appearances in order to maximize turnout at all venues.

What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 60 - 120 minutes
Fuse Box is a full production AC/DC tribute band, not a cover band that plays AC/DC songs. We strive to look like AC/DC as much as we sound like them, and present ourselves as AC/DC onstage. We typically don't play smaller bars/lounges with small staging, as we present a concert-style performance, and our Angus needs room to do his thing. We are authentic from the music, to the instruments and equipment, to the attire. If you want a true AC/DC experience, Fuse Box delivers.
We normally play at venues and shows that provide staging, sound, and usually lights, though we can arrange to provide these services as part of the package. We'll need to know if staging and sound will be provided before we can give an accurate quote.
We try not to book public shows in the same city/market any closer than 8 weeks apart, to protect the attendance potential for the venues and keep the show fresh. Some exceptions can be made, and private shows can be booked at any time.
Our set list is made up primarily of music from the Bon Scott era (74-79), with a few select Brian Johnson era songs (80-present).
