The following is an advertisment on behalf of ReGenesis...
ReGenesis are the UK’s best loved and most successful Genesis tribute band, presenting stunning performances based around the early art-rock years when Peter Gabriel fronted the band. Founded in 1994 by keyboard player Doug Melbourne, they rose from packed performances in the back rooms of pubs to playing theatre sized venues the length and breadth of the UK, Holland and Belgium. Venues performed at include:
The Shepherds Bush Empire
The London Astoria
The Newcastle Opera House
The Stables, Milton Keynes
ReGenesis have headlined at 3 UK Genesis conventions the last of which (2006) included appearances from original Genesis members (Steve Hackett, John Mayhew, Anthony Phillips) . They have appeared in Mojo, Billboard, Record Collector and Classic Rock magazines, received positive reviews in London’s ‘Time Out’ and appeared briefly in Channel Four’s ‘Top ten Progressive Rock Bands of All Time’ during the section dealing with Genesis. They have also performed critically acclaimed productions of ‘The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway’ complete with costumes and video projections. Guitarist Steve Hackett has described their performances as ‘Uncanny’.
Remarkably they have also enjoyed a recording career, having released a number of live CDs including ‘ReGenesis Live’ and ‘Lamb for Supper’ which have received worldwide distribution.
ReGenesis is staffed by dedicated, talented musicians for whom this is a labour of love, and their CV’s include work with major bands, radio and TV work. Although they have not performed together as ReGenesis since 2006, they have nevertheless remained in contact and worked on various other musical projects before reuniting for this special project.
Genesis’ massively successful tour in 2007 shows that appetite for their music remains undimmed, and for those wishing to experience some of the magic of their earliest years, ReGenesis provide something very special.
ReGenesis are currently working on a tour for 2010 and are working on a unique performance featuring some of the earliest material Genesis created with Ant Phillips and some other unusual gems. However, in 2009 they are playing 2 very special gigs at the Robin 2 and the Empire Shepherds Bush to get people into the Christmas mood with a spectacular show! We can promise a couple of surprises and a great night out for all concerned. These will be the first gigs ReGenesis have played since 2006 and your only chance to see them in 2009.
26th November - Robin 2
28th November - Shepherds Bush Empire.
