As a teenager, I spent many nights devouring every last detail of Armando Gallo’s Genesis The Evolution of a Rock Band. A fairy tale story of young idealistic boys on an unlikely journey to become a world famous rock band. The reflections of the band on their early years at the school; the connection with Jonathan King; and their recording of “From Genesis to Revelations” left me with a life-long fascination with Charterhouse and its influence on the band. There is no better venue to revisit their early albums and share a common passion with fellow fans of a sadly bygone era.
It is always an enormous pleasure for us and for many in the audience to hear Alan Reif recount what life was like for the fledgling Genesis band and their former incarnations (The Garden Wall & The Anon) in the days when rock music was seen as the start of a revolution against the establishment.
Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate the early songs of the influential progressive rock band Genesis, with leading UK tribute band The Book Of Genesis , who faithfully recreate the 1970s era comeplete with period musical instruments, fabulous costumes, an animated slide show, and atmospheric synchronised lighting in a packed 3 hour show.
