Thread: Nektar is back

    Nektar is back

    Just for information. Nektar are rehearsing right now near Trenton NJ. We are writing new music and mining the music left over from the 1978 cellar tapes we did with Ryche Chlanda at my house in Chatham NJ. We will have enough music for maybe a double album ready for January 2020 our 50th anniversary. We will record it in July and release a piece of music free so you will all know we are for real. And we are! The band is Ron Howden, Mick Brockett, Ryche Chlanda, Kendall Scott, and Randy Dembo and myself Mo on bass. I am sure that you will all like the new music in the original Nektar vein, it is coming along nicely. Ryche played with Nektar when he was 21, great guitarist/vocals I think you will like him a lot. Once we go live we will be doing the new music and also the classics. Mick is putting his light show back together for the new concerts, what he is planning is amazing. He was the pioneer of light shows in the 60's. He and I are back writing lyrics as we have always done for Nektar. We will be recording Devils Door left over from the original band which was never finished or recorded on any album. We will put that out as a tribute to Roye. Thanks for your support over the years.

    If you have questions, I will answer them for you. 50 years is a great milestone - come celebrate with us

    Right now our website is being worked on but it will be back up soon. Our 2 facebook pages are "Nektar the Legendary Rock Band" and "Nektar Appreciation Society" We also have an instagram page that is linked to both. All will be linked to Nektarsmusic.com once it is back up. The archives "Thenektarproject.com" crashed but is back up. We are working to restore it to how it was when Wayne finished it. I think you will find as we progress that the information will flow and you will know what is going on. I will also be posting on Progressive ears. We have interviews in the prog magazines coming up

    There is also Nektar on facebook that we are posting on. It gas 561 members

    I read your posts on Facebook, Mo. Very happy to hear this on here as well! I hope a date in the San Francisco Bay Area appears at some point. On Nektar, on!
