    Laser's Edge recording artist District 97 is fronted by the beautiful, charismatic vocalist and former American Idol Top 10 Female Finalist, Leslie Hunt. The band has recently released their third highly-acclaimed studio album, In Vaults, and is touring with two new members on bass and keyboards for the first time. IZZ is one of America's best-loved and longest-running Prog Rock bands, with a string of strong releases under their belt and a number of comeplling live performances to their credit-, Tiles is supporting their new album “Pretending to Run” which is scheduled for an April 2016 release (Laser’s Edge).  The 2-CD concept album about betrayal and redemption was produced by Terry Brown (Rush) and features an impressive list of special guests including Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull), Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater), Mike Stern and many others. Fresh off a European tour and a Top 3 finish for their 5th album in the Top Albums of 2015 list at "Prog Rock bible" website Progarchives.com, 10T Recording Artists & Bergen County NJ’s 3RDegree continue a string of dates that end here in NYC. Their infectious melodic style mixing Art Rock songsmithing with a Prog Rock ethos has been gaining fans worldwide at a rapid rate. Started 25 years ago this year, 3RDegree could just be one of music’s best kept secrets.

    Fresh off a 5-country European and northeastern American tour for fifth studio album Ones & Zeros: vol. 1 (which finished third in the voting of best albums of 2015 at ProgArchives.com) NJ’s 3RDegree continue that tour this Spring hitting locales they missed in the autumn including the largest North American Prog Rock festival RoSfest. Their infectious melodic style mixing Art Rock songsmithing with a Prog Rock ethos has been gaining fans worldwide at a rapid rate as of late. Work has commenced on the conclusion to the two album concept that paints a picture of a not too distant future and the various technologies that will impact our world.

     

    Formed in late 1990 3RDegree made 2 albums before disbanding in 1997. Reformed in 2005, the band released their “comeback” third album Narrow-Caster in 2008 putting them on the map of a now internet-reliant worldwide Progressive Rock “scene" like their 90’s tenure never could have. A 2009 ProgDay (NC) appearance and subsequent album-the 2012 political year themed The Long Division-furthered their upward climb into the ears of music fans that led to a 2014 Terra Incognita Festival (Quebec) appearance and 2015 tour of The Netherlands, Germany, France, England and Wales concluding at the Summer’s End Festival.
