Squonk Opera - Pneumatica (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU SO 14003
Squonk Opera are from Pittsburgh and are a musical/theatrical troupe who are as at home in theatre settings as they are at a club. They've been around since 1992 and have created a dozen distinct shows, performing on Broadway, as well as on America's Got Talent in 2011, getting buzzed by Sharon Osbourne and Piers Morgan! So you KNOW they are wonderful!

At this point (or at least on this record), they are a completely instrumental band consisting of Jackie Dempsey-keyboards and accordion, Kevin Kornicki-drums, Steve O'Hearn-electric bagpipes and flute, David Wallace-guitar, Nathan Wilson-bass.

While the band has always skirted the edges of progressive rock, with this release, they've kinda fully embraced their inner arty proggy self and made a record that sounds to me like an updated, instrumental take of what Genesis were doing circa Lamb Lies Down, with a lot more 'quirk', which is fine with me. Great stuff and recommended to all instrumental progressive rock fans.
