ProgDay 2015 Preshow at Local 506!
ProgDay is pleased to announce the performance of three great acts at the ProgDay 2015 Preshow at Local 506 on Friday night, September 4.
is a gathering of veteran musical friends who are chasing the groove and trying to get that live magic down with hard hitting riffs mixed with impromptu improvisation. The music straddles genres of 70s metal, 90s alternative, prog, funk, and jazz fusion explorations thrown in with a dark melodic vibe. The band consists of YONTZ SUCRE on guitar (Triplicity, Juxta, the Pyg, Groove Project, Stinkfist), LARS HARTMAN on drums (Mary Selvidge, Southbound 85, Better off Dead, The Results, GNP,) and SEAN GEIST on bass (MPS project, Retro Buzzkill, Mighty Lester, FunkinA, Thumpasaurus).
