Mile Marker Zero is the final band signed for RoSfest 2019. They’re a very talented Progressive Rock group from New Haven, CT USA!
Mile Marker Zero isn’t a band that the average progressive rock fan will be all that much aware of, but they have been around in one guise or another for 15 years by now – or 13 years if you refer to the band’s official biography. They released their self-titled debut album back in 2009, and along with their 2006 EP “The Haunted” they did get quite a bit of attention in those earlier days. Being the first unsigned band to have their music featured in the video game series RockBand among the proud moments from that phase of their career.
In later years the band has released a second EP, “Young Rust” (2014), and in March 2018 the band launched their second album “The Fifth Row“. The quality of the latter was so impressive that we just had to book this band, even if we didn’t really have any free slots left – we’ll get back to how that detail will be sorted when we release the official schedule for RoSfest 2019.
For those not already aware of Mile Marker Zero, progressive metal with clear references to the foundations of the genre established “back in the day” by good old Rush is a fitting and appropriate manner in which to describe what this band is all about. We love it, and we are certain that many others will as well – especially after having seen them perform their material live on the stage of course.
RoSfest 2019 will take place on May 3rd through 5th, 2019 at the Sarasota Opera House, Florida. Scheduled bands to play: Friday- Cryptic Vision and Von Hertzen Brothers. Saturday- Entransient, Mile Marker Zero, Karmamoi, Phideaux and Jethro Tull 50th Anniversary Tour with Martin Barre, Clive Bunker and Jonathan Noyce. Sunday- Edge of Reality, Traverser, Flor De Loto, and Riverside. The complete schedule with times will be posted shortly on the RoSfest website.
We love this 2019 lineup and think that you will too! Hope to see everyone in Sarasota next May!

NY Art Rockers Jack and the Jukebox just released their official music video, drawing on the talents of a veritable host of artists, actors, poets, freethinkers, nihilists, and libertines. Verne’s Jewels is Jack and the Jukebox’s first single from the upcoming sophomore album.
The band is more than a little cagey about the meaning of the song and they pointed out that art must be interpreted by the creativity of the viewer. There are a few hints that it might have been inspired by 20,000 Leagues under the Sea. The tumultuous battle of archetypes within seems to be a mythical clarion to greater inspiration and poesis on the part of the viewers. The subliminals seem intended to sell popcorn. (Just Kidding).
