New York, NY (April, 25, 2018) – CEG Presents is happy to present the reunion of Percy Hill for their 20th anniversary of their critically acclaimed album, Color In Bloom with a live performance of the album in its entirety, plus other Percy Hill favorites. CEG used to book Percy Hill at various New York City venues more than twenty years ago. Percy Hill will perform at Gramercy Theatre on Saturday, May 12, 2018, joined by special guests Moon Boot Lover (featuring Peter Prince), a band who has earned accolades in their own right amongst the funk and jamband music scene.
Percy Hill is one of the most beloved jam bands which formed in the 1990s. Formed in New Hampshire by Joe Farrell and Nate Wilson, the band went from New England’s best kept secret to legendary jamband following the recording of their 1998 album Color in Bloom, one of the best studio albums from any jamband in history. The critically acclaimed release won a Jammy Award for best studio album in 2000, and earned the band high praise from publications like the Village Voice and Entertainment Weekly. Aaron Katz and John Leccese’s addition to the Color In Bloom lineup is what has added to their notoriety amongst fans today.This album set the band apart for what succinct improvisational rock should sound like.
Percy Hill’s music has drawn favorable comparisons to Paul Simon, Steely Dan; and their live shows have earned them a spot beside the very best of the improvisational rock bands of the 90’s and early 2000’s (Phish, Widespread Panic, Disco Biscuits, moe., String Cheese Incident). The success of Color in Bloom grew the band’s popularity, leading to sold out shows and marquee festival slots from coast to coast.
With just a handful of live performances over the past several years, the entire band will reunite to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of this classic album on May 12. “Even at live shows and within the Color In Bloom tracks that we play on stage, we’ll go places we wouldn’t normally go musically and wouldn’t be heard on the record,” says John Leccese.
