CalProg is proud to announce that we will be hosting  Rewiring Genesis - A Live Tribute to the Lamb Lies Down on Broadway featuring Nick D'Virgilio (Spock's Beard, Tears for Fears) on August 1 at the Whittier venue. For those of you that are not familiar with the album, it is not a typical "tribute" album, but more an artistic reinterpretation of the classic Genesis album. The Musical Box played to sell-out crowds all over the world (including Whittier) a few years ago performing "The Lamb", but what they did was an "exact recreation" of the original tour, note for note, audience patter and all. But this is totally different. The band includes horns, female singers, strings and even an accordion. According to Nick, there will be "between 10-12 people" performing.

NDV and Rewiring partner Mark Hornsby co-produced the album using some of the best studio musicians in Nashville. Most of the original band will be performing at the show in Whittier.

For those of you that were lucky enough to attend Nick's Shaming of the True show, you know what the man can do when he goes after a big production. This promises to be one of those landmark events that will only happen once, but will be the subject of discussions for years to come. If you're a fan of Genesis (and what prog fan ISN'T?), you'll want to see this show!

Update from Nick...

This is going to be an incredibly fun evening. With a 14 piece band of bass, drums, guitar, keys, vocals, and a phat horn section that will rip your head off with proggy goodness. We did a show with some of these same players in Nashville not too long ago. That was a great night also but it was in a very small club and we couldn't perform all the material. However, on August 1st we will be performing the CD in its entirety! The band will be: 
Me, NDV on Lead Vocals
Dave Martin on Bass
Rick Musallam on Guitar
Jimmy Keegan on Drums
Kevin Krohn on Keys 
Matt Brown on Keys
Ed Goldfarb on Piano
John Hinchey on Trombone
Mark Visher on Sax/Flute
Willie Murillo on Trumpet
Charlie Peterson on Baritone Sax
Leigh Levine on Clarinet
Randy Leago on Sax/Accordion
Kat Bowser and Carolyn Martin on BGVs

The night's festivities will also be filmed and recorded, so come and be a part of the fun. 

Speaking of fun, after all of The Lamb festivities are over, my mates from Spock's Beard will be joining me us on stage for some more proggy goodness! And, if all goes well, the phat horn section might show up for a Spock’s tune or two. Whoo-hooo! (I have no idea on what yet but we'll think of something) 

Hope to see you there!
