Nektar To Headline Progday XI
- Subject: Progressive Legends Nektar to Headline ProgDay 2005
The eleventh incarnation of Chapel Hill, NC's ProgDay festival begins its
band announcement process with a bang; legendary progressive act Nektar
will headline ProgDay 2005.
One of the most beloved progressive rock outfits of the 1970s, with a string
of gold albums to their credit,
Nektar's 2000 reformation was met with jubilation by fans and critics alike.
Since then, they've been exceedingly busy, releasing two well-reviewed
albums and touring across the globe, leaving a vast number of slack-jawed
converts in their wake.
Led by guitar maestro Roye Albrighton and featuring a driving mixture of
psychedelic and progressive rock, Nektar rank among the upper echelon of
adventurous rock music. From the psychedelic Krautrock of 1971's "Journey to
the Center of the Eye" to the symphonic majesty of 1975's "Recycled" to the
progressive "Evolution" that is their latest release, Nektar consistently
deliver the imaginative and inspired listening experience that is the
hallmark of any true progressive legend.
Their celebrated live show is legendary in its own right. Long regarded as
one of the best live shows in the
business, Nektar hasn't lost a step since their mid-70s heyday, and the
demanding touring schedule of the last few years has honed their emotional
and dramatic performances to perfection.
As ProgDay enters its second decade of existence, the organizers are proud
to bring this exceptional live act to
the Storybook Farm stage.
The world's longest-running progressive rock festival, ProgDay offers two
days of sun, fun and the world's best
adventurous rock music. Be sure to visit www.ProgDay.com for more details,
including Nektar mp3s and the latest ticket information which will be appearing soon.Steve SlyProgday XI(Text written by Mike Thaxton)
