Renaissance celebrate their 50th Anniversary and will be performing a retrospective of Renaissance classics

Renaissance is a band with a rich history unique unto themselves as progressive rock pioneers who rose from the ashes of the seminal UK rock band, The Yardbirds. Their career has spanned forty plus years spearheaded by the 5 octave voice of Annie Haslam and the masterful songwriting skills of Michael Dunford. The band also featured John Tout on piano, Jon Camp on bass and Terry Sullivan on drums, all of whom further molded the sound of the band through the powerful technical command of their instruments. They were first acknowledged for uniquely blending progressive rock with classical influences and symphonic arrangements.

Renaissance are widely considered to be the band that most successfully and routinely utilized the sound of a full orchestra in their recordings. In the early years, Renaissance toured Europe extensively. It wasn’t long before influential progressive rock stations in the US, such as WNEW (NYC), WMMR (Philadelphia) and WHFS (Washington) were turning America on to Renaissance. Before too long the band started thrilling concertgoers on the world’s most distinguished stages, from Carnegie Hall in NYC (with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra), to the Royal Albert Hall in London (with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Royal Chorale Society). In 1978 they had a top ten hit in the UK with ‘Northern Lights’, which has become a classic radio favourite, still demanding regular airplay to this day. The band eventually disbanded in the late 1980’s at which time Annie Haslam launched a solo career.

In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the original founding of  Renaissance Michael and Annie in 2009 decided to form a new touring band which consisted of; Rave Tesar on keyboards, David J Keyes on Bass, Tom Brislin on keyboards, Frank Pagano on drums. In 2014, Renaissance released their first album in 13 years entitled ‘Symphony of Light’.  The album is a testament to the unforgettable melodies that Michael Dunford infused into his work (Michael died prematurely in 2012). The album begins with powerful lyrics by Annie Haslam in the title track about the life of  ‘Leonardo da Vinci’, followed by  ‘Waterfall’, a song written about the rainforests in Brazil. The album’s music will bathe the listener in sonic flavors from far off countries, lush orchestral arrangements and unusual lyrical content, and with guest appearances from Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull) and John Wetton (Asia/King Crimson/UK).

The Band have most recently toured North America, Canada, and in May 2017 had a triumphant tour of South America.  In 20i8 they also performed in Tokyo, Japan.

The current personnel of Renaissance include: Annie Haslam lead vocals, Rave Tesar keyboards, Leo Traversa bass guitar, Geoffrey Langley keyboards, Frank Pagano drums and Mark Lambert on acoustic guitars.

The singles  “Sailing” (1980), and “Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)” (from the 1981 film Arthur) peaked at number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. “Sailing” earned three Grammys in 1981, while “Arthur's Theme” won the Oscar for Best Original Song in 1981 (with co-composers Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager, and Peter Allen).

Todd Rundgren, born and raised in Philadelphia, began playing guitar as a teenager, going on to found and front Nazz, the quintessential 1960's psychedelic group. In 1969, he left the band to pursue a solo career, recording his debut offering, Runt. But it was 1972's seminal Something/Anything?, on which he played all the instruments, sang all the vocal parts, and acted as his own producer, that catapulted Todd into the superstar limelight, prompting the press to unanimously dub him “Rock's New Wunderkind.” It was followed by such landmark LPs as A Wizard, A True Star and The Hermit of Mink Hollow, as well as such hit singles as “I Saw The Light, “Hello It's Me,” “Can We Still Be Friends,” and “Bang The Drum.”

Micky Dolenz is an actor, singer, director, producer, writer, radio DJ, inventor, and all-around performer extraordinaire, and stands tall as a paragon of taste and accomplishment in the rough-and-tumble world of show business and entertainment. Micky is best known as a vocalist and drummer of the 1960s pop legends The Monkees. The Monkees not only achieved great success as a TV show, but also as viable recording artists; selling in excess of 65 million units, and achieving worldwide success. Their first four albums - The Monkees (1966); More of The Monkees (1967); Headquarters (1967); and Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, & Jones, Ltd. (1967) all reached the number-one position on the charts and launched three number-one singles: “Last Train to Clarksville,”  “I'm a Believer” (both with lead vocals by Micky), and “Daydream Believer.” The group's first five albums also went platinum.

Jason Scheff is the longtime tenor lead vocalist of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted supergroup Chicago. Scheff joined the group in 1985 replacing the iconic vocalist/bass player Peter Cetera going on to be one of the principal songwriters and main contributors throughout Chicago's career. Scheff's songwriting, vocals, and musicianship helped create the most successful recording era of Chicago, the 1980s and 1990s. Scheff is also the voice across 4 decades, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, 2010s, performing all the classic Chicago hits in thousands of concerts, television appearances.

Joey Molland is an English composer and rock guitarist whose recording career spans five decades. He is best known as guitarist, singer and songwriter of classic rock legends Badfinger.

That being said, the neighborhoods they were from should not be confused with the Manhattan of Broadway shows, Wall Street, Greenwich Village and Harlem. The streets of their youth, though just a few miles from these wonders, were for the most part, placid and suburban. Nevertheless, like many folks back then, they were afflicted with a needling agitation just below the surface of everyday reality. This was, at least in part, because of the Cold War and the constant, looming threat of a global, nuclear holocaust. Now one of the top international touring bands, Steely Dan’s first new album in twenty years was highly anticipated. 2001 was a banner year for the boys. Two Against Nature won four Grammys including the award for Album of the Year, a decision that apparently cheesed off some of the younger nominees. Then, in March, Steely Dan was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Obviously. sending a case of gourmet honey-mustard to Hall of Fame founder Jann Wenner had paid off in spades. Finally, in May, Donald and Walter received honorary doctorates from the Berklee College of music. The album Everything Must Go was released in 2003, followed by a triumphant American tour. The band now boasted an all-star lineup: Keith Carlock on drums; “Ready” Freddie Washington on bass; Jim Beard, keyboards; Jon Herington, guitar; Walt Weiskopf and Roger Rosenberg, saxes; Michael Leonhart, trumpet; Jim Pugh, trombone; and vocalists Carolyn Leonhart, Catherine Russell, LaTanya Hall and Cindy Mizelle. Now concentrating on live appearances, the band began to offer evenings that featured performances of entire albums. Countdown to Ecstasy, The Royal Scam, Aja and Gaucho were each performed live, often at the band’s annual appearances at the Beacon Theater in New York, always fan favorites. Loyal to their roots in jazz, Walter and Donald made it a point to present major jazz artists as openers. Featured players have included Jimmy Cobb, Bill Charlap, Chris Potter, Sam Yahel, Julian Lage, Joey DeFrancesco, Joe Lovano, Peter Bernstein, Mike LeDonne, Bobby Broom and the Deep Blue Organ Trio.

A Tuba To Cuba is as much a soundtrack to our documentary as it is a collection of songs that we wrote and recording during the filming and after its completion.  The writing and recording of our previous release, “So It Is” began before our first trip to Cuba in 2015.  We had no idea that it would become the album it would until we returned home from that first trip.  The “A Tuba To Cuba” soundtrack is comprised of a combination of songs that are both in the movie and new songs that aren’t in the film or couldn’t have been in the film because not until we were able to watch it ourselves, we were again inspired to put that spirit into new music.  Our five years exploring the Cuba/NOLA history has been inspiring to say the least.

Their career has spanned forty plus years spearheaded by the 5 octave voice of Annie Haslam and the masterful songwriting skills of Michael Dunford. The band also featured John Tout on piano, Jon Camp on bass and Terry Sullivan on drums, all of whom further molded the sound of the band through the powerful technical command of their instruments. They were first acknowledged for uniquely blending progressive rock with classical influences and symphonic arrangements. Renaissance are widely considered to be the band that most successfully and routinely utilized the sound of a full orchestra in their recordings. In the early years, Renaissance toured Europe extensively. It wasn’t long before influential progressive rock stations in the US, such as WNEW (NYC), WMMR (Philadelphia) and WHFS (Washington) were turning America on to Renaissance. Before too long the band started thrilling concertgoers on the world’s most distinguished stages, from Carnegie Hall in NYC (with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra), to the Royal Albert Hall in London (with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Royal Chorale Society). In 1978 they had a top ten hit in the UK with ‘Northern Lights’, which has become a classic radio favourite, still demanding regular airplay to this day. The band eventually disbanded in the late 1980’s at which time Annie Haslam launched a solo career. In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the original founding of  Renaissance Michael and Annie in 2009 decided to form a new touring band which consisted of; Rave Tesar on keyboards, David J Keyes on Bass, Tom Brislin on keyboards, Frank Pagano on drums. In 2014, Renaissance released their first album in 13 years entitled ‘Symphony of Light’.  The album is a testament to the unforgettable melodies that Michael Dunford infused into his work (Michael died prematurely in 2012). The album begins with powerful lyrics by Annie Haslam in the title track about the life of  ‘Leonardo da Vinci’, followed by  ‘Waterfall’, a song written about the rainforests in Brazil. The album’s music will bathe the listener in sonic flavors from far off countries, lush orchestral arrangements and unusual lyrical content, and with guest appearances from Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull) and John Wetton (Asia/King Crimson/UK). The Band have most recently toured North America, Canada, and in May 2017 had a triumphant tour of South America.  In 20i8 they also performed in Tokyo, Japan. The current personnel of Renaissance include: Annie Haslam lead vocals, Rave Tesar keyboards, Leo Traversa bass guitar, Geoffrey Langley keyboards, Frank Pagano drums and Mark Lambert on acoustic guitars.
