We are delighted to announce that Brand X has been signed for ROSfest 2018 as the Friday night headliners.
UK band Brand X is one of the great band of progressive rock, in the view of many the band that defined what jazzrock was all about as seen from a progressive rock point of view. They initially appeared back in the mid 70’s, and in this initial phase they also featured the skills of Genesis drummer Phil Collins.
Brand X went on hiatus in 1980, with five studio albums to their name. A sixth album appeared in 1982, but then the band was quiet until they reformed in 1992. A further two albums were released in their second phase, alongside an archival release. A new spell of hiatus then followed in 1999.
In 2016 Brand X reformed for the second time. This latest incarnation now consists of John Goodsall (guitars, synthesisers), Percy Jones (bass), Kenny Grohowski (drums, percussion), Chris Clark (keyboards) and Scott Weinberger (percussion). In 2017 the band have been on a reunion tour and released a new live album.
Brand X is one of the giants in the annals of progressive rock as well as jazz. A true headliner act, and we are looking forward to seeing them perform for our audience on May 4th 2018.
