      Subject: [ProgAndOther] STARCASTLE to play ProgDay 2002!


      American progressive rock masters STARCASTLE will be appearing at the
      ProgDay festival this Labor Day weekend, August 31st and September 1st,
      2002. This performance is a culmination of a series of serendipitous events
      for all involved, as ProgDay found out that Starcastle might be available
      only after initial band commitments were made, but fate smiled kindly and
      the band was both available to play, and eager to get on stage in front of
      their fans after all these years.

      Originating in Champaign Illinois, Starcastle was one of the popular and
      well-respected of the American prog bands of the 70s. Their first two albums
      for Epic, "Starcastle" and "Fountains of Light", are archetypes of the
      symphonic sound; utopian, grand, sweeping, intricate, complex and melodic, a
      marriage of accessibility and compositional rigor that holds up well to much
      of the contemporary music and what has come since.

      After many years of inactivity, Starcastle is back. Gary Strater's Sunsinger
      Records has released the Starcastle archive "Chronos I", featuring material
      from the band's early days, and work is also underway for a new studio
      album. The long-awaited reunion of the band will be realized on the stage
      for the first time this Labor Day weekend. It is a privilege for ProgDay
      that this world-class band has accepted an invitation to perform.
