When it comes to tribute bands, you can't go past this show. This is not only one of the best tribute shows going around, this is regarded as the BEST AC/DC tribute.
From an idea first spawned in 1986 by original Lead Singer, Bob Topping, “BACK IN BLACK” the original AC/DC tribute eventually took to the stage in 1988.
After a name change around 1994, that band re-grouped to become THUNDERSTRUCK and has been wooing audiences as a collective for more than 30 years.

Fast forward to current day, Lead vocalist, B.J. Vernal (2005), not only covers the songs of Brian Johnson brilliantly, but sounds so much like Bon Scott on the earlier AC/DC, you would think “he is possessed by the great mans spirit”, as many fans have put it.

           on Lead Guitar in the role of Angus Young, belting those familiar guitar solos.

Put this together with the rhythm section of Dave Ross (bass 1998), Nick Hunt on drums, (July 2018) and                on rhythm guitar (2020) as Malcolm Young and you have got one fantastic show!

From AC/DC's first album (disc) 1975's HIGH VOLTAGE to the latest one in POWER UP, the tribute Show THUNDERSTRUCK not only gives you the music of AC/DC, but also a brilliant visual aspect. (see bio's for more info).

"It's a long way to Melbourne if you wanna rock 'n' roll, but it helps if it's with THUNDERSTRUCK" - MARK EVANS - Formerly of AC/DC.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all 

Well as another Christmas is upon us and the year that was is about to close, we find ourselves with some changes, which has made us more determined to strive for a solid year in 2021.

We made the decision to not rush back, half cocked, and have regrouped and will be ready to fire things back up towards the end of January, as you will see in our Gig Guide.


So to one and all, have a safe and enjoyable festive season, we hope to catch you out and about at one of shows, soon enough.

Keep it real, stay safe, In Rock We Trust...!!

Cheers to all.

THUNDERSTRUCK @ BONFEST, Scotland in May 2020 

This was announced on our FB page a couple of months back.

THUNDERSTRUCK was invited to perform their full show at BONFEST in Kirriemuir, SCOTLAND, UK on the first Weekend in May 2020. The boys were extremely excited and proud that their hard work and being the best AC/DC Tribute in AUSTRALIA has paid off. 

Unfortunately the COVID restrictions have delayed this trip going ahead, but it has been postponed until 2022

More about this, soon.
