Last year, Dennison and fellow prog rockers Circuline teamed up to create Sonic Voyages Fest, a touring prog rock festival. He brings the show into town this week for a performance at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 29, at Wilberts Food & Music
Both bands have received their fair share of praise. Critics have called Deninzon “the Jimi Hendrix of the Violin,” because of his innovative style. Circuline, a “modern cinematic progressive rock band that eatures two theatrical lead vocalists, a keyboard player from Juilliard, a jazz-rock genius on guitar, and a drummer with progressive rock in his DNA,” draws upon prog influences as well.
The King Crimson-inspired Cell15 opens the show. Tickets are $10.
Raised in Cleveland by parents who play with the Cleveland Orchestra, violinist Joe Dennison (pictured) mixes classical and prog rock with his band, Joe Deninzon and Stratospheerius.
