The Friday Night Progressive online radio show is celebrating its tenth anniversary tomorrow night (June 25, 2021) starting at 9PM EST. The show is hosted by Ron Marquiss, and it celebrates the best in independent progressive rock, instrumental, and fusion. The free show focuses on the more complex and technical side of the genre rather than the poppier stuff. You can find links to all the places you can listen to the show live over at their website: https://fridaynightprogressive.com.
In addition to the tenth anniversary show, Ron is releasing a short album called Lines & Circles under the band name, Drive In Movie Band. The group features musicians from all around the world. This just under a half-hour album is all instrumental, highlighting the complex and jazz side of the genre. The first track even has a bit of an early King Crimson vibe.
Lines & Circles has the following lineup:
- Ron Marquiss – Composition, Keys, Guitar, Bass
- Jordan Marquiss – Drums
- Joe Compagna – Bass
- Nathan Ames – Guitar
- Adrianne Simioni – Violin
- Astraea Antal – Flute
- Bret Harold Hart – Guitar and other instruments
- Brent McDonald – Guitar and Keys
- David Leiter – ELP sound FX
The albums are a way for Marquiss to cover the costs of running the free Friday Night Progressive radio show. You can check them out at the following links:
