AFTERGLOW Genesis Tribute Band
Friday 20th September 7.30pm
Afterglow covers the music Genesis played once Phil Collins took on vocal duties. The earlier Gabriel period is well supported by numerous tribute bands but there isn't much opportunity to hear those later tracks that are equally popular with most Genesis fans. So don't expect costumes or Mellotrons catching fire. Do expect to hear the music played with authentic sounds and fastidious detail. Everything from A Trick of the Tail right up to We Can't Dance... with a few oldies thrown in for good measure!
