LAPEER — The diverse playlists of Detroit radio of the ’60s and early ’70s made a mark on the members of Fifty Amp Fuse. With a playlist of nearly 200 songs, Fifty Amp Fuse has developed a reputation for uncannily accurate and faithful renditions of these familiar songs.

Their goal is to put on a show for listeners at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 28 at The PIX Theatre with flashbacks of “I remember where I was and what I was doing when I heard that song the first time.” These passionate artists re-create the sights and sounds that we all grew up to and takes their audience on a roller-coaster ride of medleys and mash-ups.

Most folks think of tribute bands as playing the music of a singular artist. Fifty Amp Fuse aims to break that mold as a tribute to the greatest hits of all time from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90’s and now.

With six lead vocalists, Fifty Amp Fuse is able to pull off songs like “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen, and “We are Young” by Fun. From the deck of the U.S.S. Midway in San Diego harbor to the Hard Rock Café in D.C., to the House of Blues in Dallas, Fifty Amp Fuse delivers show after show in a rock-concert-meets-dance-party style.
