I am not sure how many of you prog. rock fans are familiar with a group called “Rocket Scientists” featuring Erik Norlander (also in Asia), Mike McCrite, and Don Schiff (king of the Chapman stick). They are a big hit in Japan and Europe, and are starting to perform more in the U.S. Hopefully you had a chance to hear Rocket Scientists at the Rites of Spring festival last year. They will be performing in Cleveland on March 29th at a club in Lakewood, OH (a suburb west of downtown Cleveland) called The Winchester. There will also be a “special guest performance” by Lana Lane. We were able to get a fantastic group rate of $55/night at the Holiday Inn Select on Lakeside (216) 241-5100 in downtown Cleveland (normally the rooms are over $100/night). You do need to mention that you would like the group rate, ILCORWIN, negotiated by The Winchester when you book the room.
So I guess I'm asking everyone to come and support RS on March 29th. It will be a great way of spending your time, and once you are here the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is walking distance from the hotel.
If you are interested in attending the concert, you could get more details by either emailing me at [email protected] or checking out The Winchester's website: http://www.thewinchester.net/index.html
If you are not familiar with Rocket Scientists, take some time to listen to some of their music by clicking on the following link:
I will forward a flier to whoever might be interested in coming.
Thanks in advance for your support,
