    The Security Project “Expect The Unexpected” Tour 2022

    The Security Project Plays The Timeless Music of Peter Gabriel Re-Envisioned On “Expect The Unexpected” Tour 2022

    Featuring members of Peter Gabriel, King Crimson and Shriekback!

    Security Project featuring Jerry Marotta, the drummer from Gabriel’s classic line-up (1977-1986), plus Trey Gunn from King Crimson, on touch guitar. Rounding out the band from Shriekback and Sky Cries Mary is Michael Cozzi on guitar and co-founder of Gig Performer David Jameson on keyboards and Eigenharp. The addition of Happy Rhodes, with her 4-octave vocal range, fulfills the band’s promise of re-envisioning the music of Peter Gabriel.

    Leave your expectations at the door and be prepared to hear Peter Gabriel’s genre-less music like you’ve never heard it performed live before.

    I think Michael Cozzi is the guy who played guitar on Shriekback’s Oil and Gold!

    Do they ever leave the Northeast? (Okay, Maryland, but that's practically the Northeast.)
    If a bird can speak, who once was a dinosaur,
    and a dog can dream
    should it be impossible
    that a man might supervise the construction of light?

    Agreed. No west coast? I'd drive to Portland or BC.

    They played a few dates in the PNW in 2019, and I believe hit a couple of venues in the Midwest on the way. I don't know how successful that was, or why they did it. They've also played in Japan and Canada in the past. But I do believe they, or most of them, live in the Mid-atlantic region, and that Sellersville is sort of a local club for them.

    To the best of my knowledge, Happy Rhodes is currently based out of mid-west NY (Binghampton-ish?), tho originally from Albany (where I've had the pleasure of seeing her perform 3 or 4 times, 20+ years ago). Marotta has been in Woodstock for a while. But I think that Gunn is west coast - Seattle, perhaps. Which could explain the occasional west coast gigs.
    And I have no idea about the others.

    Looks like ANOTHER show at the Iridium I should drag myself to. Meanwhile I haven't decided if I'm going to go there for Stick Men or not. From NO live shows to too many! But I've never seen Security Project and have wanted to for a long time.
