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.

You can enjoy songs from the "old" era with frontman Peter Gabriel and the "new" side of Genesis with lead vocalist Phil Collins is highlighted. This includes "new" songs such as Turn it on again, Follow you follow me, That's All, Hold on my heart, and Land of confusion, and "old" songs such as Firth of fifth and Cinema show. 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.

What people say about Genesis Project

It is alwyas good the read what people say about us.

Excellent concert in De Boerderij. I think they performed the Lamb Lies Down on Broadway better than the original. The 2 encores "Watcher of the Skies" and "The Return of the Giant Hogweed" were fantastic. Good show. It was well travelling over from the UK for (900 miles round trip).

Excellent show this sunday @ Spirit of 66 Verviers. Thanx a lot for this good evening

Gisterenavond in de Boederij genoeten van jullie optreden. Had eerst geen zin om te gaan en ben nu blij dat ik er toch was. Ik kreeg de kriebels (in positieve zin) op mijn rug tijdens de Carpet Crawler

We stonden boven op het balkon in de Boerderij en konden het goed zien. Een lust voor oog en oor. Vooral het deel na de pauze sprak mij persoonlijk aan. Complex, symfonisch oftewel kriebels. En tja doe dit maar eens. Van boven was ook goed te zien wat er moest gebeuren op keyboards en drums. (zonder de anderen onder te waarderen overigens) Kortom, ik heb genoten!!!

Afgelopen zaterdag aanwezig in De Boerderij. Wederom genoten, om zo'n moeilijk album live te kunnen neerzetten moet je toch wel lef en klasse hebben.....en dat hebben jullie. Nog bedankt voor de heerlijke avond!

Excellent !

Apart from the superb performance of the Lamb, the performance of The Return of the Giant Hogweed was simply far much better than the guys of Transatlantic did on the High Voltage festival in London. And even though they had Steve Hackett on guitar, your performance was much more authentic. Especially the vocals were amazing. Neal Morse eat your heart out...

Geweldige avond. Met de perfecte afsluiter. Het was weer de moeite waard om meer dan 100 km te rijden.

Super Konzert! Freuen uns auf Seconds Out! Frank u. Silvia, Bad Bentheim

Geweldig concert gisteren in de Stenge, soms even met je ogen dicht, terug in de tijd, alsof het Genesis zelf is bedankt.
