Neon Fusion is a power trio originally based out of Manhattan and formed in 2002 by founding members James Vandenberg and Brian Worth. During their initial journey, NF had tremendous financial support from Tim Shelly, Owner and Executive Producker at K.L.R. Studio Productions Inc., located in Manhattan. Brian had recorded alongside numerous national artists over the years and built a strong relationship with KLR Studios during his time there. The relationship between Brain and KLR Studios helped the band regarding the initial launching of Neon Fusion.
The band began appearing as an original act throughout New York and upper states. Over time the band began to draw national recognition and and received offers to appear at numerous venues on the East and West Coast. Appearances on the West Coast led to their involvement in various USO and festival tours throughout the UK. After a long stint of touring, circa 2002-2007, they returned to their hometowns in Manhattan and the Montgomery County area of Pennsylvania for a much needed rest.
Their appearances over the years have included Northeast locations such as the Trocadaro, Theatre of Living Arts, North Star, and JC Dobbs to name a few. New York locations included the Limelight, Kenny's Castaways, The Varjek, and Tech Nor. They appeared at one of the final shows at the legendary CBGB's in October, 2006, before the final closing of their doors.
West Coast appearances include some of the most legendary California Sunset Strip Nightclubs, such as The Whiskey A Go Go, The Rainbow Bar & Grill, The Roxy, The Sky Bar, and The Viper Room.
Over the past 10-years they have obtained substantial musical status. Neon Fusion is currently endorsed by Jackson Guitars, Marshall Amplification, EMG Pickups, Sennheiser, and Ernie Ball Strings.
