Thread: Prog From Home concert

  1. #26
    It was a heavy slab of prog indeed, ranged over many current bands and players, lots of highlights. A few I hadn't heard of and will explore further (Reign of Kindo, where'd they come from?). I need to watch it again.

    It's amazing what he can do with a looper and his talent. Check the title track for this one especially.
    Thank you! The whole show turned out to be quite special.

    I did not watch the whole thing, but caught a chunk of it. Very very well done and enjoyable.

    They played Progtoberfest in Chicago a few years ago and were very good. I don't know much more about them though.

    I generally don't get much from singer-songwriter solo type performances, often the music and instrumental parts are simplified so that the performer can focus on singing. For me, these were the highlights:

    Reign of Kindo - full band performance, excellent! I'll be seeking out their recordings

    Pete Jones - he performed "Hygge" solo on piano and vocals, interweaving it with "Firth of Fifth," what a rare talent, very beautiful performance!

    Randy McStine and Adam Holzman - great take on "Here Comes the Flood," very moody ambient beginning and then Randy delivered a fantastic vocal!

    Ryo Okumotu - gets my vote for best performance of the night, he put on a heck of a high energy rock show!

    Nice show, caught about an hour of it off and on.

    I've been talking about KINDO (prev The Reign of Kindo) for years.

    my wife and I watched a Josh Rouse live stream yesterday and had to run errands (plus she doesn't care for any of the music from this Prog show anyway). But I will try and watch the Kindo performance soon. I'm curious what the set list was.

    I agree with all these highlights you mentioned - Ryo was #1 for me. I also really liked the Magenta performance, as well as the Kerzner/Perdomo song.

    Agree with everything above, and I for sure will be exploring some of the artsists whose solo or just other projects I might not have heard. It was a win/win and hopefully another win in some more support for frontline workers.

    One of my favorites was John Wesley doing Tom Sawyer. He does several different covers, and I think this is one I'd just never heard, and it was excellent. Just an electric guitar and his voice.

    The messages from people who weren't performing but just dropping in were cool too. I won't spoil those for people who might watch the stream later.

    Although the entire "Prog From Home" concert can still be viewed on YouTube, many of us are now reposting our individual performances.

    Here is Adam Holzman and I tackling "Here Comes The Flood" with a nod to Fripp's "Water Music."

    A really nice and subtle recreation.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    I agree with the above but I thought everyone did a good job. Reign of Kindo really stood out for me as well, but I was really touched by the Pete Jones performance. Very moving.
    No matter what anyone says, you are the decider of how you will listen to music.

    Watching it now. Great way to see and hear those musicians, sort of up close. They achieve a respectable sound quality. Interesting to see the choices of microphones.

    Mike Portnoy’s choice of a Jellyfish tune “I Wanna Stay Home” was appropriate and good. I read about Jellyfish being his favorite band. Jason Faulkner and Roger Manning of Jellyfish joined him which was incredible. Roger Manning plays in a new band called The Licorice Quartet a derivative of Jellyfish.
