GENESIS REVISITED 2


This tour focuses on Steve’s time with Genesis from 1971 to 1978.

The band is comprised of his own bandmembers

( Roger King/Keyboards, Gary O’Toole/Drums/Vocals, Rob Townsend/Sax/Flute/Percussion/Keyboards) and some newer talent who contributed to the recording of GR2 ( Nad Sylvan/Vocals and Lee Pomeroy/Bass/Guitar).


The evening was filled with songs spanning the albums of Steve’s tenure. Without a doubt hand picked favorites! Tightly performed, a mix of  songs originally handled by Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins - sang with as much energy and flair as the originals. Encased in the intricate five to twelve minute storied compositions that became the Genesis trademark.


I sat there in awe at the whole thing and looked around to see the ‘sold out’ crowd in Genesis heaven! What an evening!
