More information: Hot on the heels of 2016's most acclaimed progressive rock release, "The Similitude Of A Dream", THE NEAL MORSE BAND releases the massive live concert event: "Morsefest 2015".
In addition to THE NEAL MORSE BAND, featuring drummer Mike Portnoy, the 38 musicians on stage create a prog orchestra. Over two nights (one on each video disc) in 2015, they perform new arrangements of material from Neal Morse's career. The two concerts span over five hours, venturing beyond the studio versions they're based on. In addition to complete performances of the "Sola Scriptura" and "Question" albums, there are songs from SPOCK'S BEARD (featuring guest Nick D'Virgilio), TRANSATLANTIC, and surprises — including performances with guitar legend Phil Keaggy. Accompanied by extravagant visuals, including three video screens and live dancers, "Morsefest 2015" is the most massive live release of Morse's career.
Free from the constraints of studio recording deadlines, Morse added any instrumentation he imagined, including live strings, a five-piece horn section, and a 14-piece choir (in addition to background singers, and the vocals of the band). At the center is THE NEAL MORSE BAND: singer/guitarist/keyboardist Neal Morse, drummer Mike Portnoy, bassist Randy George, keyboardist Bill Hubauer and guitarist Eric Gillette.
In addition to both concerts, a one-hour documentary puts audiences behind the scenes for this epic event. Featuring candid moments from the band, other musicians, and crew - it's an engaging glimpse into the whirlwind staging of this event.
Sonically, outstanding audio is delivered by veteran mix engineer by Rich Mouser, who has helmed every Neal Morse, SPOCK'S BEARD and TRANSATLANTIC studio album.
The package is presented as either 2 Blu-ray discs, or 2 DVDs with 4 CDs.
