Vinyl Thunder

Experience! That is the word that describes Vinyl Thunder best. We have over 100 years of playing and gigging experience between us. If you look through the last 25 years of the Madison music scene’s history, you will find one or all of the Vinyl Thunder band members in a popular group. In the early 80s you could find Gonzo and Norm playing in Predator, In the late 80s and early 90s you could find Marc, John, and Jeffery playing in Rattlebones, or Norm playing with D.S. Jukin. Through the mid 90s you could find Marc playing with the AC/DC tribute band Dirty Deeds or Gonzo rocking at his namesake music club in Metal Gonz. After 2000, Rattlebones resurfaced to jam in local bars and Norm & Gonzo were starting other music projects. All of us have been under the bright hot stage lights at one time or another.

Now all of this experience has been gathered to form the band Vinyl Thunder. Vinyl Thunder plays homage to the classic rock of the 70s and 80s, playing hits from bands like Aerosmith, ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ted Nugent, and many others.

To sum it all up we bring the musical experience, the equipment, technology, and the networking skills to make our relationship a success. We will present unique and entertaining show that Classic Rock lovers wont soon forget.
