RoSfest is thrilled to announce US band THANK YOU SCIENTIST as the third band on Sunday for RoSfest 2014. This seven man strong unit started out in 2009, and has made quite a name for themselves in the live circuit in the following years. Describing themselves as a seven headed monster, other sources describe the band as a fairly eclectic unit that joyfully blend elements from jazz and fusion into a progressive rock framework, adding a touch of metal as additional flavoring.
Thank You Scientist released their first EP “The Perils of Time Travel” in 2011, but it wasn’t until they released their full length album “Maps of Non-Existent Places” the following year that the band really started garnering a lot of attention. Salvatore Marrano (vocals), Tom Monda (guitars), Greg Colacino (bass), Odin Alvarez (drums), Russell Lynch (violin), Ellis Jasenovic (saxophone) and Andrew Digrius (trumpet) will be quite the presence on stage just from sheer numbers, and with music that combines the variety of bands such as The Mars Volta, the intensity of bands like Dream Theater and adds a distinct jazz rock atmosphere into one tight package they should make a huge impact musically as well.
After their energetic, mind blowing, and very well received performance at ProgDay over Labor Day, 2013, we knew that this band would fit right in to the RoSfest environment. We’re truly looking forward to experiencing Thank You Scientist live on our stage. The five o’clock concert on Saturday May 3rd will go down in history as one of the top “you should have been there” concerts in the annals of RoSfest.
