Power of Prog was launched in September 29th 2009 by Florida based grassroots independent label Melodic Revolution Records which specializes in Progressive Rock as well as a few other genres of music. The Power of Prog name carried over from a 2008 Prog Festival of the same name hosted by the label in upstate New York. The idea of a Progressive Music Social Network came to Nick Katona back in early 2009 after becoming frustrated with having to go to various sites to fill his prog needs.
According to Nick
I first discovered music that I still love today back in the late 60’s early 70’s, that music would eventually be called Prog / Progressive Rock or one of many sub-genres There are many wonderful Prog sites on the net promoting prog, unfortunately each one is specialized by a topic, one site might be for forums, another site for reviews, another site to purchase music, another site for blogs, and so on you get my point.
I wanted to change that concept and bring all those elements together in one location where musicians and fans can meet up and share conversations, videos, music, forums, groups, and other ideas. So there you have it. a social network for the prog minded. What you will not find here are Games, Pop Ads and Spam..
Just some of the styles of Prog you will find here on Power of Prog
