Still catching up on my reviews... That fourth edition of the Southern California progressive rock festival featured four really varied bands this year: Puppet Show, Spiraling, Frogg Cafe and the Rudess Morgenstein Project.
I have been to every single event since the first CalProg 3 years ago, and in many ways this festival feels like a family affair. This year seemed on a smaller scale than previous years, with no extra act on the patio and a much smaller merchant area (which was rather disappointing). But on to the show, or at least what I still remember about it...
The first band opening the festivities was Puppet Show.
They were probably the most "typical" prog band in the festival, as far as their sound was concerned. Their show was entertaining, and I bought their album The Tale of Woe. Unfortunately, i couldn't find the band after lunch to have them sign it.
