SOFTEN THE GLARE at ProgDay 2018!

SOFTEN THE GLARE is what happens when different worlds collide.  Guitarist Bon Lozaga has made a name for himself among jazz rock and progressive rock fans with his work in Pierre Moerlen’s Gong, Gongzilla and Tiny Boxes.  He has also forayed into the jam band scene, playing with moe. and Umphreys McGee.  Ryan Martinie is known as the bassist of Mudvayne, a heavy metal band that sold millions of albums and achieved global success.  Now, along with drummer Mitch Hull, they form SOFTEN THE GLARE, an instrumental jazz/rock trio with elements of metal, funk, symphonic progressive and a touch of chaos!

Join SOFTEN THE GLARE for the twenty-fourth edition of ProgDay.  ProgDay is a two day outdoor festival of progressive rock.  ProgDay 2018 will take place on Saturday and Sunday, September 1st and 2nd, at Storybook Farm in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.  For more information, please visit us at www.progday.net.

Thanks.

Norway’s PIXIE NINJA Plays ProgDay 2018!

PIXIE NINJA is the creation of two individuals with a huge appetite for Scandinavian progressive music - Jostein Haugen and Marius Leirånes. Playing together in various projects since 2008, they began to work on Ultrasound, PIXIE NINJA’s debut album, in 2015. Marius and Jostein played guitar, bass and keyboards. The album was produced by Mattias Olsson (Necromonkey, Änglagård), who was also responsible for drums, percussion and other instruments. What emerged was an eclectic mix of heavy ambient, electronica and symphonic rock, all rendered with a strong cinematic feel.

When Ultrasound was released in 2017, Marius and Jostein never intended to perform the material live. However, they later received so many requests for live shows, that they decided to make it happen. In February, 2018, Marius and Jostein asked Mattias Olsson to join the band on drums and Fredrik Klingwall to be the band’s new keyboard maestro. They met up at Roth-Händle Studios in May and started rehearsing for live shows.

ProgDay is happy to host Pixie Ninja for its first performance in the U.S.!

FERNANDO PERDOMO and THE OUT TO SEA BAND at ProgDay 2018!

FERNANDO PERDOMO has been making a name for himself as a producer, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.  As owner and operator of Reseda Ranch Studios (Reseda, CA), he has been involved in a diverse range of musical productions, including work with Linda Perhacs, Dean Ford, Andy Pratt, Rebecca Pidgeon, Cristina Vane, Jacob Jeffries, The Dirty Diamond, Ex Norwegian, and Alih Jey.  To progressive rock fans, he is probably best known as guitarist (and sometimes bassist) of the Dave Kerzner Band.  

For Fernando’s fifth solo album, Out To Sea, he decided to celebrate his love of progressive rock with a collection of instrumental symphonic rock pieces.  Playing all of the instruments himself on the studio recording, The Out To Sea Band was formed to bring this music to the live stage.  The band will be performing material from the album Out To Sea, and more.

Join FERNANDO PERDOMO & THE OUT TO SEA BAND, PIXIE NINJA and SOFTEN THE GLARE for the twenty-fourth edition of ProgDay.  ProgDay is a two day outdoor festival of progressive rock.  ProgDay 2018 will take place on Saturday and Sunday, September 1st and 2nd, at Storybook Farm in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.  For more information, please visit us at www.progday.net.
