Ad Astra
is an Instrumental Progressive Rock/Fusion band that has been active in the NYC/LI music scene for over 10 years. New York based guitarist Joe Nardulli's self-titled debut CD inspired and intrigued a bunch of local progressive rock musos. After jamming with a few, Joe finally found the right people and put a band together. David Penna on drums, J. Levine on bass and Eric Davis on keys brought Joe's solo material to life. Now as a band, AD ASTRA (Latin for "To the stars" - inspired by the title of the closing track of Joe's self-titled debut CD) has taken the compositional process to another level and have completed a full band recording! With a clear focus on melody and arrangement, over complex rhythm and harmony, their songs always keep your interest and never sound monotonous. They've released two CDs of material and are writing for a third. Highlights over the last few years include performances at the New Jersey ProgHouse, a show with world-renowned bassist Stu Hamm and a blistering 90-minute set at the 2016 ProgDay International Progressive Rock Festival. In 2018 they played the Long Beach Music Festival, Progtoberfest 2018, an annual three-day progressive rock festival held in Chicago, and are playing the legendary My Father's Place in April 2019. With Harold Skeete and Tony Savasta now filling the rhythm section duties things have been looking up and they're excited to do more and expand their reach

Callooh Callay
is an original Progressive Rock Band from NY. This high energy musical and multimedia experience band feels that new music is the future of the industry. We play original progressive material with passion and the spirit that the bands of the 70's embodied. Our long Island sound was crafted from years of listening to the classics, but putting a modern approach to it.
