Thunderstruck is the longest-running AC/DC cover band in existence. Hailing from Vancouver, Thunderstruck is celebrating its tenth-anniversary. Their show is comprised of 2 sets including 28-songs that cover the entire gamut of AC/DC’s thirty-year career.

Vocalist Ken shares the same rasp as Brian Johnson but also lapses into the nasally style of Bon Scott for the band’s pre-BACK IN BLACK material.

The schoolboy outfit and cap, the duck walk, the floor seizure and every glorious, blues-inspired riff were done to perfection. The rest of the band certainly holds up their end as well. The rhythm section of Bud and Tim keep a throbbing beat throughout and rhythm guitarist Roger keeps up to the manic Angus-like stage energy. For “Hells Bells,” you’d swear it is AC/DC on stage, while the elongated jam of “Sin City” was ripped straight from the seminal 1978 live album, IF YOU WANT BLOOD (YOU’VE GOT IT).
