B. Shannon Center for the Performing Arts
It is with great pleasure and a certain amount of unbridled excitement
that CalProg can announce our next show with TWO CalProg alums (not to
mention staff favorites) Spock’s
Beard and Enchant! The show will be held in the beautiful Ruth B. Shannon
Center for the Performing Arts on the campus of Whittier College. This was
the venue that hosted “Shaming of the True” in June 2012.
Spock’s and Enchant are modern progressive rock heavyweights and both
are at the top of their proverbial “games”. After a 10 year break,
earlier this year Enchant released the album “The Great Divide” and it
has been critically acclaimed as their best work to date. They followed
that with a number of live performances including ROSfest earlier this
month and received rave reviews by festival goers. There are plans for a
European tour after this CalProg date as well as performances on YES’S Cruise
to the Edge.
what Dave Meros (bass player
from Spock’s Beard) had to say about the upcoming show:
“We're really looking
forward to this show on August 29. Besides the fact that this will
be the first concert showcasing our new album (The
and besides the fact that the Shannon Center is a top notch venue, we
always look forward to working with Jim and the CalProg crew. He is one of
the few concert promoters that seems to know the secret to making
everybody happy. The presentation is always perfect and they
take care of all the details and make sure everybody. .. bands and
audience alike. . .. have the kind of experience that they would
personally want to have.”
California’s own Spock’s Beard has always been a great band. And while
some counted them out with Neal Morse’s departure in 2002 to pursue a
solo career, the band continued on undaunted by the personnel change,
honing their writing and performing chops in an SB 2.0 era. And they just
kept getting better and better. Their last album (Brief Nocturnes And
Dreamless Sleep - 2013) was not just the best album of SB2.0, but may well
be the best SB ever. So it is with great anticipation that their new
release (The Oblivion Particle) will drop just in time for this show.
Premium $80 (Center Floor Section)
Standard $65 (All other seats)
Tickets go on sale Saturday May 30 at 8am only at CalProg.com. Don’t
miss this opportunity to see two great bands doing full sets back to back.
It’s sure to be a huge treat for Southern California prog fans! I/we
hope to see you there!
