Is ProgStock happening this year? What did you think was going to happen? Tom and Ann were going to give up? If the pandemic didn’t stop us… And our venue getting flooded didn’t stop us… I mean, really people!
And what are the dates? Seriously? When is ProgStock? Say it with me now… COLUMBUS DAY Weekend! or Indigenous Peoples’ Day Weekend or the weekend before the second Monday in October. Confused yet? How about this? It’s October 7 – 9, 2022!
We’ll be announcing all kinds of exciting stuff over the next week, so pay attention folks!
The festival’s motto. And never could it have proved to be more appropriate than now.
When King’s X found themselves forced to cancel, after realizing that even daily physio was not going to suffice to get Ty Tybor’s fret finger back into good enough shape to prepare properly for their performance at this year’s RoSFest, the festival organizers found themselves in a bit of a fix.
But ‘community’ is a keyword for the annual Rites Of Spring Festival, and a group of musicians, captained by Dave Kerzner stepped up to ensure that the weekend’s entertainment would not be marred by a gaping hole in the line-up.
Sunday night’s headliner spot will now feature Dave KerZner and his newly formed All Star Prog Band featuring world-famous session man, Fernando Perdomo (Carmine Appice, Out to Sea, Echo in the Canyon…), Durga McBroom (Pink Floyd, Steve Hackett, Blue Pearl…), Billy Sherwood (Yes, Arc of Life, Circa, Asia…), Nick D’Virgilio (Big Big Train, Spock’s Beard, The Fringe, Genesis…). Dave also promises to surprise the audience with a magnificent set-list and a few surprises and special guests.

RoSFest is set to end with a fantastic party atmosphere for musicians, fans, and organizers!
PATTERN-SEEKING ANIMALS, the California-based band featuring Ted Leonard (lead vocals & guitars), Jimmy Keegan (drums & vocals), Dave Meros (bass) and John Boegehold (keyboards), are pleased to announce the band’s third studio album titled Only Passing Through, to be released through InsideOutMusic on April 1st, 2022. The album is the follow up to the critically acclaimed 2020 release Prehensile Tales.
The band check in on the new album here: “Only Passing Through, our third album picks up where Prehensile Tales left off but soon takes several stylistic detours as it progresses. Everyone involved made this album a lot of fun to make and we’re all looking forward to it to finally being heard.” John Boegehold
“This new album draws from a lot of different sources and pushes all of us to bring out our best. We all had to dig pretty deep to express out the right spirit of each song. To call it Prog would be highly inadequate. We’re all over the map and yet, there is still a very distinct sound that threads through the whole album. I’m very proud of this record and excited for people to hear it!” Jimmy Keegan
Since taking up the reins of RoSFest, the new Board of Directors has frequently reiterated its desire to take the festival forward for many years into the future. Its motto “Music. Culture. Community” represents the foundations on which the festival is built and the Saturday night headlining act was specifically chosen to epitomise just what RoSFest stands for by bringing together the past, present and future of music in a single performance. Jon Anderson, a rock legend in his own right, with a career spanning over four decades, will be joined on stage by young and highly-talented musicians from the Paul Green Rock Academy. In Jon’s own words “Paul Green is such a character… he’s a real sweetheart, but he really drives them.

Jon Anderson, a rock legend in his own right, with a career spanning over four decades, will be joined on stage by young and highly talented musicians from the Paul Green Rock Academy.
Jon Anderson requires little introduction, a founding member of Yes, his entire discography includes numerous solo albums and collaborations with a whole array of artists making him one of the most prolific musicians of our time. His 15th studio album released in 2019 and aptly titled ‘1000 Hands’ due to the numerous guest appearances that went into its creation, embodies a musical journey like no other.
The Rock Academy on the other hand is a “rock school dedicated to serious musicians” founded by American record producer, film producer, director, screenwriter, singer-songwriter, music teacher, entrepreneur, and philanthropist, Paul Green. Students aged 10-18 are selected based on their dedication to music, showmanship, love of performing, and ability to rock with actual pros.
Jon Anderson’s collaboration with the Academy dates back to 2005 and together they recently concluded an 11-city tour in the U.S.
