    ProgDay 25: Mike Keneally, Andy West, Farmhouse Odyssey and More!

    ProgDay 25: Mike Keneally, Andy West, Farmhouse Odyssey and More!

    ProgDay 25 is happy to announce main stage performances by MIKE KENEALLY with ANDY WEST, FARMHOUSE ODYSSEY, and a Thursday night preshow by MARBIN.

    ------------

    MIKE KENEALLY with ANDY WEST

    "Keneally is the leading progressive rock genius of the post-Zappa era."
    - ALL MUSIC GUIDE

    Known initially as the “stunt guitarist” for Frank Zappa (following the likes of Adrian Belew and Steve Vai), KENEALLY then blazed a significant place for himself in the world of music with a series of recordings remarkable both in their musical scope and originality. In addition to Frank Zappa, he has also made a name for himself working with acclaimed artists like Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Andy Partridge, Henry Kaiser, Mastodon, Devin Townsend, and others.

    For this special performance KENEALLY will be teaming up with ANDY WEST, best known as bassist and co-founder of the renowned fusion band, The Dixie Dregs.

    Mike says, “the identity of the drummer is yet to be revealed.” Check the ProgDay site later for more information.

    ------------

    FARMHOUSE ODYSSEY

    “The lyrics themselves take on a nearly surreal, sometimes almost e.e.cummings-like texture - the phrasings odd and suggesting, rather than spelling out in cold, clinical terms. All of it backed by formidable, exquisite, musical complexity. That right there is the spiritual bedrock:* while the voice whispers, cries, intones - the musicians form ever-changing, ever-growing, never-stagnating counterpoints leading to newness. All of it hypnotic.”
    - Stephen Conrad, PROGRESSIVE ROCK FANATICS

    Formed in California in 2012, FARMHOUSE ODYSSEY is an ensemble of 5 friends coming together to create music outside of genre definitions, but inspired by progressive rock, jazz, psychedelic, funk and world music. The result is organic, free-flowing symphonic rock with fusion overtones, and a vibe that evokes west coast psychedelia. The band will be featuring music from their new release Fertile Ground.

    ------------

    MARBIN Show Thursday Night, August 29th, at Local 506!

    “What an amazing band! Everytime I listen to Marbin, I simply wish to see them live in concert in the near future, because it is obvious they provide wonderful shows full of energy, jazz fusion/rock and craziness…”
    - Memowakeman, PROGARCHIVES

    ProgDay regulars will remember MARBIN taking the stage by storm at ProgDay 2015 and leaving a trail of stunned audience members in their wake. MARBIN is a progressive jazz-rock band based out of Chicago, IL. The band started touring extensively in 2011, bringing their original instrumental music to every part of the United States. Through word of mouth, MARBIN has gained the attention of thousands of devoted fans and has sold tens of thousands of albums. To date MARBIN has released seven albums.

    Opening for MARBIN will be singer/songwriter BEN DELAURENTIS. Based out of Lynchburg, Virginia, DeLaurentis is the founder of rock band Steal The Prize.

    If you are arriving for ProgDay 25 on Thursday, you won’t want to miss this show! Visit the ProgDay Preshow Page (http://www.progday.net/ProgDay-Preshow.html) for details.

    ------------

ProgDay is a two day outdoor festival of progressive rock.

    Yeah, unfortunately that's not my issue. I'd be telling my wife I'm not going with her on her free trip to Vegas.

    Just for the record "free trip to Vegas" is an oxymoron. They will get their payment somehow.

    Treehouse and Trillium...not familiar with them, but their name makes me think that they sound like Coheed and Cambia

    A couple days ago my iPod's randomizer picked a Keneally track and reminded me that it's been forever since I've seen him play live. Looking forward to that.

    And if the wife weren't coming along, I'd seriously consider driving down a day early just to see Marbin again. Shame they couldn't have scheduled that for Friday night.

    I saw him play on the recent Frank Zappa tour. I always come down on a Thursday to get settled in with the wife and grandson.
