Upcoming Show May 26, 2016 – Tribute to Keith

Fanfare presents the music of Emerson, Lake and Palmer – a special tribute to the late, GREAT Keith Emerson. We will be playing a show on Thursday, May 26 at the legendary Fitzgerald’s Nightclub in Berwyn, Illinois (just outside of Chicago). Opening the evening will be Chicago proggers Sonus Umbra, who recently released their highly regarded album Beyond The Panopticon. This will be a very special evening, honoring the memory of the wonderful music of ELP and the INCREDIBLE playing of the late, great Keith Emerson. We are THRILLED to be able to do this show for the Godfather of Progressive Rock. If you’re an ELP or progressive rock fan, this is a CAN’T MISS kind of affair!


Remembering Keith Emerson

The members of Fanfare were shocked and saddened by the tragic passing of Keith Emerson on March 11th. He was true pioneer in music who tore down boundaries between rock, classical, jazz and electronic music to help craft a new musical landscape that became known as progressive rock. An incredible songwriter, gifted musician and an awe inspiring performer. One of a kind, and a long time musical hero of ours. We love playing his music because it is so challenging and so rewarding. He will be missed. RIP.
