What We Do
We are a 6-piece band from Stratford-upon-Avon and the surrounding area, lovingly recreating some of the classic Prog rock of the early 1970s. Not a tribute band, rather a tribute to a whole genre. Bands covered include Genesis (Gabriel-era), Pink Floyd, Rush, Jethro Tull, Focus, Camel and more. Playing to keep the classics alive!
We do not use backing tracks - everything you hear is played live. Our set includes music with diverse influences, from folky acoustic 12-string passages, via a baroque-style flute-and-recorder quartet, through intricate vocal harmonies and soaring keyboard solos, all the way to heavy guitar-driven stadium rock. Truly something for everyone.
We are always happy to consider requests to play at festivals, pubs, clubs and corporate events etc.
