The American Northeast’s Only International Progressive Rock Festival, October 7-9, 2022 in Rahway, NJ
At this moment (Saturday October 8th), the Progstock festival is running, with artists such as the Zappa band, District 97, Rachel Flowers, Evership, the Yes tribute band (Total mass retain), Matt Dorsey and others.
One of the exhibitors is the Bob Moog foundation and they will present the new book “Switched On: Bob Moog and the synthesizer revolution. They wrote: Larry Fast joins us at ProgStock 2022! table October 7-9 in Rahway, NJ. Come by and meet some of our team – and pick up a signed Larry Fast CD, some Bob Moog Foundation merch, and a copy of Bob’s new, definitive biography, “Switched On: Bob Moog and the Synthesizer Revolution.” Our executive director, Michelle Moog-Koussa, will also read select passages of the new bio at ProgStock.
What is ProgStock, exactly?
ProgStock’s main stage will feature music that most radio hosts would find to be too long and too complex to play on-the-air. Dancing in 7/8, indeed, is left to fans who are accustomed to calculating high math in their heads. It’s easy to assume — because even the massive force of Apple Music doesn’t feature a decent Prog option — that the genre is dead. Alas, the Internet is largely credited for bringing together Prog’s most loyal and growing fandom.
This three-day volunteer-run festival was founded to solve a few positive problems. First, even though a handful of fun Prog gatherings exist around the globe, artists are eager to play in the Northeast United States during the autumn months, where and when not much else in Prog circles takes place. Second, we know that Prog fans are seeking a comfortable, classy venue to see their favorite bands perform. Add in a great arts-friendly host city that’s close to a huge airport and regional rail transportation…and that’s most of ProgStock’s story. The only thing we need for this to be complete is…You! And with you, there will be much rejoicing at The American Northeast’s Only International Progressive Rock Festival, ProgStock.
We are incredibly pleased to bring this festival to you together with our partners at the House of Prog Internet Radio station, and the NJProghouse Progressive Music Series. We are enormously grateful for their support for, endorsement of, and participation in this Herculean endeavor.
