We’re delighted to announce that The Dave Kerzner Band will be the third band performing on Saturday at ROSfest 2016. A composer, producer, and musician, Dave Kerzner is best known in prog circles for co-writing and co-producing Sound of Contact’s debut album Dimensionaut, which won the Limelight award in the 2013 edition of the Progressive Music Awards. He has also worked with Heather Findlay (Mostly Autumn) in UK band project Mantra Vega, as well as numerous major stars inside and outside of progressive rock circles including Steve Hackett, Francis Dunnery, Keith Emerson, Steven Wilson and more. Kerzner formed sound production company Sonic Reality in the 1990’s, and his side project Sonic Elements revolves around the drums he’s sampled with Neil Peart of Rush, Nick Mason of Pink Floyd, and more.
Kerzner launched his solo career in 2014 with the album “New World,” a production that was met with acclaim from fans and professionals alike. The CD made it into the top 10 of Prog Magazine’s Reader’s Poll in 3 categories, and the composition “Stranded,” featuring Steve Hackett (Genesis) and Durga McBroom (Pink Floyd), was nominated as a candidate for “Anthem of the Year” in the 2015 Progressive Music Awards.
The Dave Kerzner Band, consisting of Dave Kerzner (vocals, keyboards, guitars), Fernando Perdomo (guitars), Randy McStine (bass, guitars), Matt Dorsey (guitars, keyboards, bass), Derek Cintron (drums), Durga McBroom (vocals), and Lorelei McBroom (vocals), is a rising star in progressive rock circles composed of skilled artists who will see to it that this will be a memorable concert at ROSfest 2016.
“Kerzner is an artist that might well be heading for stardom in the progressive rock universe, and perhaps even beyond. Catch him now before he’ll be a major player, as he may be out of reach for a festival such as ours soon!”
