is pleased to announce that the 4th and final band
appearing on the main stage this year is the high-octane,
hard-rocking Seattle based Presto Ballet. The brainchild of
Metal Church’s lead guitar player Kurdt Vanderhoof, this energetic
quintet is choc full of crunchy guitar, percussive B3 organ and
melodic vocals. I think CalProg staffer Todd summed it up pretty
well when he commented on a sample from their upcoming CD: “Just the
right touch of "metal" without being cartoonish or over
bloated.” Speaking of which… their long awaited 2nd
CD entitled “The Lost Art of Time Travel” has just been
released! You can buy it on-line HERE.
We really are looking to Presto
Ballet to get CalProg off to a blistering start with their
high-powered rock, in a year when the musical diversity of the
line-up will long be discussed in prog circles.
