About Big/Gun the AC/DC Tribute

In 2001, an idea formed in the minds of a few musicians in Knoxville, Tennessee to create the most authentic tribute to one of the greatest bands in the world, AC/DC. Shortly thereafter, BIG/GUN was formed. Through hard work and dedication, it became the most sought after tribute to AC/DC in America. After 23 years of touring and 1500+ shows, the bar has been set high for which all other tributes are measured. Scott Abney’s (Angus) high energy performance takes you back to early AC/DC shows. The vocals are handled by Andy Bowman (Brian/Bon). His spot on vocals earned a spot in the auditions for a guest vocalist with AC/DC in 2016. Dean Johnson’s (Malcolm) rhythm guitar would make Malcolm proud. Bassist Mark Kennedy (Cliff) fills the venue with solid low end notes.  The backbone of the band is Nationally renowned drummer Michael Ramsey (Rude/Slade). Together, it is the greatest tribute to AC/DC that anyone can see, BIG/GUN
