Fans of progressive rock REJOICE! Ryo Okumoto, recording artist legendary keyboardist of Spock’s Beard will be performing in a follow-up performance to his well-received “Prog From Home” appearance!

This is a unique opportunity to see Ryo and his band tear through original songs from his solo albums, “Makin’ Rock” and “Coming Through”, as well as a selection of Spock’s Beard material.

This is a full four-camera livestream event! Ryo will be performing on the legendary Yamaha C7 grand piano, along with his full keyboard rig of classic synths, the mighty drawbar organ and Leslie, and an assortment of modern plug-ins, mad scientist style.

It will be a night of too many notes, and way too much fun!

Prog-rock aficionados, show up for the songs you know and love… but stay for the sonic insanity and adventurous music-making in a time when we need such odysseys most. Explore the outer realms of music without ever leaving your chair.

Ryo is one of the most animated, entertaining musicians in the genre, and the band is comprised of the best musicians Japan has to offer.

Together it will make for a night of progressive music to remember. DON’T MISS THIS!


See you there!
