Pinnacle To Play Progday 2008
The Progday festival has announced Pennsylvania based PINNACLE for ProgDay 2008. PINNACLE was first formed in 1997 when guitarist/vocalist KARL EISENHART met drummer GREG JONES and they began performing together as DREAD PIRATE ROBERTS and later as LANDSLIDE. After several lineup changes, multi-instrumentalist BILL FOX joined the project. PINNACLE’s musical goal is to write accessible songs that are firmly rooted in the best progressive rock traditions. Both vocal and instrumental tracks are featured on the band’s two albums, “A Man’s Reach” (2003) and “Meld” (2006). PINNACLE's live shows have underscored their place as one of the best up and coming symphonic bands in the US, including their performance at PROGOCTOBERFEST in Saratoga, New York, and a headlining appearance at THE NEW JERSEY PROGHOUSE. PINNACLE are sure to please with their modern take on classic progressive rock.
