Organizer/Promoter: Scott Corcoran
Purpose: To showcase bands of the Progressive Rock genre to their fans in the Connecticut area, as well as providing the opportunity to reach a wider audience in the process. The series will conduct itself with honesty, integrity and professionalism.
My goals: My intention is to treat these world class musicians with the respect and care that they deserve when they perform for the series. I am also extremely sensitive to my fellow fans wants and needs. Their experience at the shows in this series is my ultimate concern. I want to give them a comfortable environment to enjoy this music in.
My inspiration (For the Series): The beauty about the Progressive Rock music scene is we’re all so inter-connected. The bands, cd shops, labels & fans are all woven into this super tight community. You see it at the festivals like NEARfest, ROSfest , Progday, CALProg and on a smaller scale as well. Like my fellow Series promoters : NJProghouse, NEWears & Orion Studios. I trust these people when they put on a show for us and they deliver, just like the bands do.
I’ll never forget my first NJProghouse show at the Metlar -Bodine House in April of 2002. It was The Flower Kings. I walked out at the end of that show with a feeling I never had before at a concert. I went alone as I did most of the NJProg shows back then because I didn’t really know anyone else as passionate as I was about the music (Boy has that changed!). I left with friendships that still remain to this day…So I went alone, but I didn’t leave alone!!!
The whole 2.5 hour ride I couldn’t wait to go back to the next show. So in a sense this series really started way back then. When I lost my job…These guys were there for me. I got into Erik Norlander on a donation. I saw IZZ basically because I was allowed to be a “Staph” member and help Greg Jones brew his incredible Coffees for fans and the band.
The community/ family feeling from the Proghouse is really what brought to the point of starting Prog On The Sound. I dedicate this series to the Fans of this music and the inspiration of the Artists who create it. But most importantly my friends at the NJProghouse, who showed me that normal good people who are a passionate about something can make a ton of memories for friends and concert goers alike!!!
