These guys have been my friends since the early 70's. They've never had a lot of commercial success. Canada never was a great market for prog rock, as Saga fans will know all too well.

That being said, they've continued to produce music true to the genre. They sell enough in Japan and Germany/Europe where prog rock has always been strong to be able to keep at it without incurring debt, if not making a few bucks.

Fantastic musicians and great people...Lightspeed!

Has anywhere been a good market for prog rock? Haha.

Good on them for keeping at it though. It's die-hards like them that keep the spirit of playing in bands alive. Do it for the fun or challenge and if you get paid and famous, great. But if not, at least you're having fun.

Looking forward to it!

However, after having refreshed my memory on all the sound clips on your website, don't you think that virtually every song could use a bit more boost to highlight the bass guitar?:tongue:

Don't be a stranger to these forums, Rod. It's a great way to keep in touch with those of us at home!:food-smiley-004:

It's gonna be a hoot....hopefully, we'll have a party room downtown for after the show...prepare to drink some :food-smiley-004:

Hey, it's only the bass guitar....it's not like it's an important part of the sound :rockon2:

This is a killer forum...expect to see me droppin' by from time to time

The seventies were kind to prog music....but since then it's been "Don't quit your day job"...Montreal still supports it today, though....However, you've got to travel beyond the great pond to find a decent audience these days...

Took the words right out of my... fingers.

If there isn't much of a market, make your own market.
