Welcome to House of Prog, your home for progressive music and more…featuring the only vinyl show on the web!

ProgStock Festival, the American Northeast’s Only Progressive Rock Music Festival, Returns for its Third Year to the Union County Performing Arts Center in Rahway, NJ, October 11-13, 2019

ProgStock Festival, the American Northeast’s Only Progressive Rock Music Festival, will return for its third year in 2019, and will once again be held on Columbus Day Weekend, October 11-13, 2019, at the beautiful Union County Performing Arts Center (UCPAC) in Rahway, New Jersey.

ProgStock Festival was founded to give artists and fans in the genre of progressive rock a place to play and experience their favorite music in a great environment. ProgStock’s main stage will feature music that most radio hosts would find to be too long and too complex to play on-the-air. Dancing in 7/8, indeed, is left to fans who are accustomed to calculating high math in their heads. However, the festival presents a variety of rock that can be enjoyed by any music lover.

ProgStock Festival provides the artists, attendees and their families with a great place to share their talents and love for music in a family-friendly environment. Artists mingle with the fans and share experiences as well as music and art. The venue, a renovated vaudeville-era theater, provides everyone with a comfortable place to listen to the music with phenomenal sound. The City of Rahway provides everyone with a hub where they can enjoy the festival, enjoy great food and beverages, shop, relax and recover in a beautiful hotel room, and easily hop on a train from and to Newark International Airport or New York City.

Here is our complete band lineup for the festival by day:

  • Elder – The Gold & Silver Sessions
    by Shawn Dudley on July 16, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    I’m learning to never underestimate Elder. In my review of their last studio album, the masterful Reflections Of A Floating World, I spent a fair amount of time detailing how quickly and impressively their music has developed over the past decade. Yet despite this knowledge, I still found myself properly flabbergasted upon hearing The Gold [&am […]

  • Djam Karet – A Sky Full Of Stars For A Roof
    by Graham Thomas on July 14, 2019 at 5:30 pm

    Anyone already familiar with Californian instrumentalists Djam Karet (pronounced Jam Care-Ray), will know what to expect from this, their latest release. There is a welcome familiarity about the way they go about creating music. It will be fundamentally guitar-based, with three guitarists in Mike Henderson, Mike Murray and main-man Gayle Ellett, a dexterous rhythm section [&am […]

  • Queensrÿche – The Verdict
    by David Ryan on July 13, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    My introduction to Queensrÿche was Operation: Mindcrime, a stellar progressive metal album, and an amazing experience. Following the creation of that album, in 1988, the band went on to write significantly more accessible music, and even had some success in the 1990s. When delving into The Verdict, I was quite happy to find that this [&am […]

  • Iamthemorning – The Bell
    by Magnus Moar on July 12, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    Last year’s studio concert Ocean Sounds felt like a line drawn under Iamthemorning’s first three albums and, on its release, the band announced that 2019 would see the arrival of their fourth full studio album. That brief wait is over and the album, entitled The Bell, is now with us. Iamthemorning are one of the [&am […]

  • Marillion
    by Ian King on July 11, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    Aula Magna, Lisbon, Portugal Friday, 31st May – Sunday, 2nd June 2019 Around 2 years before this event  Marillion’s go getting manager Lucy Jordache visited Lisbon to gauge whether it was an appropriate City for one of the band’s bi annual weekend conventions. Presumably she liked what she saw. A beautiful  exotic city, full of [&am […]

  • Gandalf’s Fist
    by Tony Colvill on July 10, 2019 at 5:56 pm

    With The Clockwork Prologue companion piece to 2016’s The Clockwork Fable now available, TPA’s Tony Colvill spoke to the band about (almost) all things Fist… Dean, in your role as Cogtopolis Eccentric Overlord (that is what CEO stands for, is it not?) where can your lost soul progressive rock/steampunk/story reader fit the continuing tale within [&am […]

  • Gandalf’s Fist – The Clockwork Prologue
    by Tony Colvill on July 10, 2019 at 5:51 pm

    Every now and then the lunatics have an away day from the asylum; the Gandalf’s Fist collective are such a bunch of lunatics. The Prologue is really a tale within a tale, that fits somewhere, though where is a complete mystery to me. A number of songs that could have made the cut for A [&am […]

  • Jon Anderson – 1000 Hands: Chapter One
    by Mel Allen on July 9, 2019 at 6:18 pm

    Musical legend that is Jon Anderson releases a new album which has been thirty years in the making. There will be a lot of debate regarding this album, comments like, ‘well it’s not Yes’, ‘all his solo albums bar two have been poor’, ‘you would be a fool to review it’, etc. Now perhaps some [&am […]

  • Fish On Friday – An Initiation (2010-2017)
    by Leo Trimming on July 7, 2019 at 6:52 pm

    An Initiation (2010 – 2017) is a new compilation from Fish on Friday and serves as a fine introduction for those unfamiliar with the band. For the ‘uninitiated’, the most well-known member of this international band based in Belgium is Rock bassist extraordinaire, Nick Beggs, whom has played with Steve Hackett, Steven Wilson and the [&am […]

  • A Look At Civil Defiance
    by jondubose on July 7, 2019 at 11:55 am

    Los Angeles, 1989… A 19 year old me went out with some friends to see some bands playing on the strip in Hollywood, a somewhat regular occurrence. On this particular night there was a band from the town I was … Continue reading &rarr […]
