    Marbin was all over Cruise To The Edge playing in several different configurations. They have come a long way and are very good. I did not attend the year they played ProgDay before, so can't comment on that performance.

    I wish I had been there, but I have seen them twice before. I love that band. And whatever growling vocals they want to throw in there, are fine by me, lol. You can't please everybody, as they say.

    They posted a video of them entertaining the cruise ship workers loading the luggage. Those guys are non-stop.

    good guess, but Dave doesn't want to play live any more.

    Is Dave in Moon Men, as opposed to Moon X?

    Maybe Echolyn - They could probably throw in a few new songs.

    Jed, that is too funny. I'm not going all the way to Chapel Hill to nibble stinky cheese in the hot sun.

    ProgDay has lost another family member.

    We were saddened to hear this morning of the sudden passing of our friend TJ Higgins from Huntsville Alabama. We first met TJ at either ProgDay 97 or 98. A whole group of us just seemed to click together which has created friendships that have lasted over the years, even though we lived in various parts of the country. I always looked forward to getting together with TJ every year at ProgDay as one of our group who would hang out all weekend. TJ even came to Kalamazoo once for a visit back in the 00’s. Last summer we had to attend a wedding in Alabama which made a good excuse to get together TJ and our other friends in Huntsville. We were looking forward to seeing him again in September. Our condolences to his family. He will certainly be missed.

    There's been more than 1 occasion where TJ was the first guy I saw in the lobby upon checking in.
    I was really looking forward to seeing him again.
    This is heartbreaking.

    Sigh. This sort of thing is not going to get any easier. RIP.

    I'm glad PD is still going after all these years with only a year or two hiccup because of covid. I haven't gone in what seems like eons but unfortunately I don't think I'll make it this year. To all who do go though please have fun and stay safe (eg. no drinking then diving in the pool :P ).

    More importantly - no drinking and urinating in the pool, at least jump out and go in the bushes!

    Can anyone tell me an approximate number of the members of the ProgDay Beer Snob Club? I plan on bringing high end beers to share, but I don't want to overdo or unnecessarily overload my vehicle. Thx.

    ^The one time I joined them it was just a few geezers, and plastic cups were used for tasting. But let a couple of the more senior members answer too.

    One thing’s for sure - there’s no shortage of beer at Progday, and if someone’s personal supply runs low, there are any number of people willing and able to share.

    There's been about 5 or 6 of us the 2 times I was there and we did it. No need to overdo it as we generally taste samples of each one.
