CalProg: Presto Ballet added to Line-up for 2006

Postby PapaJimH » Thu Oct 20, 2005 7:30 pm

Seattle based hard rocking “classic style” progressive rock band Presto Ballet has been added to the line-up for the 2006 summer festival help in Whittier, California. Presto Ballet is the new band from Metal Church guitarist Kurdt Vanderhoof. Evoking a classic 70's feel, their debut album "Peace Among The Ruins" heralds a return to a time when music was at its most colorful and influential. An album full of tasteful guitar parts, crunching Hammond organ and rich vocals, the band follows a path previously tread by rock pioneers such as Kansas, Yes, Genesis and Deep Purple. Vanderhoof describes the album from a production point of view, "We recorded the whole album in a somewhat 'old school' manner, which means analog synthesizers, real Hammond organ and real Mellotron sounds".

Presto Ballet is the second band announced for next year’s festival, along with fusion/prog band Helmet of Gnats. If you are unfamiliar with either of these bands you are encouraged to visit the CalProg Website ( ) and listen to some audio samples that are on the “2006 Performers” page. The date for CalProg is July 8, 2006.
