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!
Fanfare will be playing a private show in Chicago organized by Harding House Concerts – it will be taking place at 6:00pm on October 11 and will include singer/songwriter Steafán Hanvey from Northern Ireland as well as Chicago based prog rockers Sonus Umbra. Message the hosts via Facebook for address and more information:

Friday night’s show at the Arcada Theater in St. Charles, Illinois was an unqualified blast! We knew the Security Project was made up of a formidable group of excellent musicians, but we had no idea how friendly and down to earth they were, nor did we know how much fun their show was to watch. They really captured the sound and spirit of those early 80’s Peter Gabriel shows. We had a fantastic time opening for these guys and really appreciated the crowd’s enthusiasm and support. Thank you to the Arcada Theater folks (especially Kevin Pollack who helped put this show together), the Security Project band and crew, and of course all the fans who came out to support the great music we all love!
We will open the evening for a band made up of former members of Peter Gabriel’s band and King Crimson who reunite for an incredible premiere show, performing music from Gabriel’s Security (1982) and Plays Live (1983) albums, as well as a few sonic surprises. The evening will feature Jerry Marotta on drums; Trey Gunn on bass and Warr Guitar; Fuzzbee Morse on guitar, keyboards, saxophone, and flute; David Jameson on keyboards; Josh Gleason on vocals; and Larry Fast on keyboard sounds and sequences.
