About Genesis Project
The Dutch band "Genesis Project" has been around for almost 25 years. Over the years, this enthusiastic group has performed various Genesis shows, with authenticity being a top priority.
This season, Genesis Project is playing the show Two Sides Live, the two sides of Genesis.
Genesis was founded in 1967 by, among others, singer Peter Gabriel and their first album was released in 1969. In 1970, Phil Collins joined Genesis as a drummer. During the most creative period until 1975, the legendary symphonic classics were written. When Peter Gabriel left the band in 1975 for his solo career, Phil Collins became the singer and second drummer. From 1980, the new style of music from Genesis became popular with the general public and Phil Collins also made solo albums. Phil Collins left the band in 1996 and one more album was made with singer Ray Wilson in 1997. In 2000, the band was dissolved.
Before intermission, you can enjoy songs from the "old" era with frontman Peter Gabriel, and after intermission, the "new" side of Genesis with lead vocalist Phil Collins is highlighted. This includes "new" songs such as Mama, Follow you follow me, That's All, Hold on my heart, and Land of confusion, and "old" songs such as Firth of fifth, Supper's ready, and In the cage. Fat keyboards and bass pedals, crystal clear guitar work, and bombastic drums guarantee an authentic sound.
What you can expect is that Genesis Project will perform both the old and new style of music with great enthusiasm. Complete with two drummers, this is a tight contemporary show that will not disappoint even the true Genesis fan. This band is much more than a tribute band and takes you completely into the world of intelligent rock from Genesis. The experience is enhanced by a dynamic light show and well-designed visuals that are projected behind the band during the concert.
We promise you a great evening. Close your eyes and you hear and feel Genesis. With your eyes open, you experience the music surrounded by a beautiful light show and surprising visuals.
