Stereosphere Brings Electro-Prog Magic to the Rook by Ryan Smith

Saturday, Feb. 4

Sometimes, just sometimes, things really start coming together when one well-loved band disbands.

Take Tuscarawas County, Ohio-based electro-prog rockers Stereosphere, for whom things came full circle once members dissolved their old band, hard-working area jam favorites The Stagecoach Robbery.

A short, well-earned break came after six years of hefty touring, but for three of that band’s four members – John McCarron, Seth Swegheimer, and Marcus Dreher – around a year was about enough time to go without getting together and gettin’ down. So, joined by well-established Ohio-based musician Zac Pirillo, they arrived on the scene once again, this time as the dynamic foursome Stereosphere.

By our count, anyone who’s a fan of truly decent prog-jam – and who’s not already long-trekking to that night’s Umphrey’s McGee show in Detroit – should make their way to the Kings Rook Club to check these guys out on Saturday, Feb. 4.

Who says you have to go far to get far out? – Ryan Smith
