KRUSH is a pre-teen, classic rock super group, who began playing together in December 2013, after bonding, forming friendships, and discovering their recognizable chemistry at a local music school in South Florida.
KRUSH arose as a vision of Brad and Laurie Rothschild, parents of lead guitarist Nicholas Rothschild. They began the process of selecting band members that could play at the level of Nicholas, who, at the time was eight years old. Brad and his wife Laurie handpicked each KRUSH member with the hopes of a better band, better sound, and better quality.
Rehearsing weekly at DC Rehearsal Studios in West Palm Beach, Florida, these pre-teen rockers continue to grow as professional musicians and performers. Each performance increases the band’s “They’re HOW old?” factor tenfold, and the KRUSH fan base is rapidly expanding from pre-teen admirers who the band has dubbed to be the “Krushettes” to renowned industry professionals as Ron Alexenburg and Tony Bongiovi. They are capturing the attention of both local and major media and quickly making a name for themselves as the next generation of rock.
KRUSH most recently was selected by local radio station Sunny 107.9 to compete and perform at Clematis by Night’s 20 year anniversary of Battle of the Bands and was crowned this years winner! They also reigned victorious at the 2015 ALS JAM FOR THE CURE: Battle of the Bands. It was a fundraiser to benefit Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) research at Jazziz at Mizner Park in Boca Raton. South Florida and all competing bands were judged by music producer Paul Hoyle (Latin Grammy winner who has worked with Shakira, Julio Iglesias and Jon Secada), songwriter Dennis Lambert (a 12-time Grammy nominee), Tommy Mitchell (former lead singer for Blood, Sweat, and Tears), and Nicko McBrain (drummer of Iron Maiden). In addition to these accolades they were also named the Judges Choice Winners in The Deerfield Beach Founder’s Day Parade. Since their first gig in June 2014 they have opened for some sought-after names including Def Leppard/Styx/Tesla, Melissa Etheridge, Montgomery Gentry, Smash Mouth, Kendall Schmidt, and Heffron Drive.
Ranging in ages 11-12 the boys have gained an unbelievable amount of attention in a very short time. The band even caught the attention of CBS on a special called "Extraordinary People".
With thunderous drums, searing guitar, throbbing bass, and piercing vocals it is proven by KRUSH members Ben, Nick, Tristan, Landon that rock and roll is still alive and is making its way back to the top.
