More Bands for ProgDay 2024!

"PAKT follow their own law. Or make it up as they go along. Either way is thrilling." - Mike Jurkovic,

PAKT is a true super group featuring Percy Jones (Brand X, Brian Eno, David Sylvian, Suzanne Vega), Alex Skolnick (Testament, Alex Skolnick Trio, Metal Allegiance, Trans-Siberian Orchestra), Kenny Grohowski (John Zorn, Brand X, Imperial Triumphant, Hipster Assassins), and Tim Motzer (Bandit65, Jaki Liebezeit, David Sylvian, Jamaaladeen Tacuma). An experience as much as a musical project, PAKT recalls the fearless attitude and daring approach that originally defined progressive music: where the magic of the moment always triumphs over preconception.

Squeaky Feet

"It’s these types of discoveries that keep me searching for new music, this band should have a bright future, they are a terrific group of musicians, and they will rock your socks off." - Eric Porter, Sea Of Tranquilty

SQUEAKY FEET, a Colorado quintet whose genesis began over a decade ago at Berklee College of Music, has created a large buzz among progressive music lovers since the release of its debut album, Cause For Alarm, in 2023. Influences and inspirations range from Frank Zappa, Dream Theatre and King Crimson, to Umphrey’s McGee, Rush and Snarky Puppy. Incorporating the band members’ varied musical voices and visions, the resulting music is a unique, forward-looking, innovative mashup of progressive rock, jazz-fusion and dance/trance.

Birdsongs Of The Mesozoic

"A Boston band that compresses Stravinsky, Steve Reich, and Question Mark and the Mysterians into keyboard driven stomps."
John Pareles, The New York Times

Fans of progressive music will already be familiar with BIRDSONGS OF THE MESOZOIC. An instrumental quartet that developed out of Boston's post-avant punk scene in 1980, BIRDSONGS has flown a distinctive course, creating an eclectic blend of rock, avant-garde noise, punk, classical, minimalist and free-form music with hypnotic electronic sequences. With a history spanning over 40 years, the band has earned international recognition and praise for its originality and excellence. Twelve years after BIRDSONGS first performance at ProgDay, we are thrilled to again host one of the band’s rare live appearances.

Jane Getter Premonition

"Getter is a powerhouse stratslinger and her latest blends jazz and prog rock to create her own unique sound… all highlighted by her wailing, heartfelt solos.” - VINTAGE GUITAR MAGAZINE

Known as a “triple threat” (guitarist, singer, and award winning composer), JANE GETTER first picked up a guitar when she was eight years old. Having toured or played with musicians like Brother Jack McDuff, Lenny White, Michal Urbaniak, and the Saturday Night Live Band, she has built a significant reputation for her superlative, versatile and genre-bending guitar work. Along with Jane, JANE GETTER PREMONITON is an ensemble of superb musicians including keyboardist Adam Holzman (Miles Davis, Steven Wilson), guitarist Alex Skolnick (Testament, Transiberian Orchestra, PAKT), bassist Paul Frazier (David Byrne, Nile Rodgers) and drummer Gene Lake (David Sanborn, Nile Rodgers, Chic). The music features “masterful playing of Getter’s complex, sophisticated and dynamic compositions.” (All About Jazz) and lies somewhere at the intersection of rock, jazz, metal, and singer-songwriter.

First Band Announcements for ProgDay 2024!

"Superb guitar from Frédéric L’Epée and his ensemble. Ticking all sorts of Canterbury, RIO, and other boxes.” - SID SMITH - UK

The legacy of guitarist/composer Frédéric L’Epée stretches back to the 1970s with the legendary band Shylock. Followed by the evocative and intricate music of Philharmonie, YANG continues this musical exploration and development. While Robert Fripp is an obvious influence, the music ranges out into territories that really sound like nothing Fripp or King Crimson has done before. Often described as a midpoint between complex math rock and more traditional progressive rock, the music is always unpredictable and captivating. Join us as YANG celebrates it’s newest release on Cuneiform Records, Rejoice!, with a spellbinding journey through their eclectic repertoire that seamlessly combines intricate melodies and powerful rhythms.

Jack O' The Clock band photo

Jack O' The Clock

"Jack O' The Clock just seem to go from strength to strength, one of the most original and compelling groups I know playing some amazing compositions that seem to tread effortlessly between Van Dyke Parks and folk music from an as yet unidentified culture, while making all the things you've always thought of as difficult sound as effortless and natural as breathing.” - FRED FRITH

JACK O’ THE CLOCK released its first album in 2008. Now, with ten albums of original music, the band’s unique blend of Americana, progressive rock and the avant continues to defy easy characterization. While the basic instrumentation is inherently folk in nature, the final result, with it’s chamber orchestra leanings, jazz details, intense storytelling, and a dollop of surrealism, creates a sonic landscape which is really like nothing else. …Or as one reviewer stated, “JACK O’ THE CLOCK is what you get when you put together After Crying, Frank Zappa, Donovan, The Beatles and Indie Pop.” Whatever your description, the music is eloquent and beautiful, and always interesting and engaging.
