Morsefest 2015: "?" and "Sola Scriptura" LIVE!
Bookmark and Share
 
 
Hot on the heels of 2016’s most acclaimed progressive rock release, THE SIMILITUDE OF A DREAM, THE NEAL MORSE BAND announces the massive live release of a once-in-a-lifetime concert event: Morsefest 2015 on March 24 via Radiant Records.
 
In addition to THE NEAL MORSE BAND, featuring MIKE PORTNOY, the 38 musicians on stage create a prog orchestra. Over two nights (one on each video disc) in 2015, they perform new arrangements of material from NEAL MORSE’s career. The two concerts span over five hours, venturing beyond the studio versions they’re based on. In addition to complete performances of the SOLA SCRIPTURA and QUESTION albums, there are songs from Spocks’s Beard (featuring guest Nick D'Virgilio), Transatlantic, and surprises—including performances with guitar legend Phil Keaggy. Accompanied by extravagant visuals, including three video screens and live dancers, Morsefest 2015 is the most massive live release of Morse’s career.
 
Morsefest 2015 was an epic show with epic music and epic performances! The studio albums that we played this time are two of my very favorites, and some of the additional songs that we played have never been performed before! — Randy George
 
Free from the constraints of studio recording deadlines, MORSE added any instrumentation he imagined, including live strings, a 5-piece horn section, and a 14-piece choir (in addition to background singers, and the vocals of the band). At the center is THE NEAL MORSE BAND:  singer/guitarist/keyboardist Neal Morse, drummer Mike Portnoy, bassist Randy George, keyboardist Bill Hubauer and guitarist Eric Gillette.
 
Complimenting this level of musicality, is a multimedia visual presentation. It begins with the most elaborate lighting set-up MORSE has ever used, constructed specifically for this event, designed by Ryan Proplesch. A video graphics track, projected on three screens, was created by media artist Christian Rios to illustrate every moment of each song. Live dancers provide further visual interpretations, adding a dimension to the performance that is rare in progressive rock.
 
In addition to both concerts, a one-hour documentary puts audiences behind the scenes for this epic event. Featuring candid moments from the band, other musicians, and crew—it’s an engaging glimpse into the whirlwind staging of this event. And there’s even a Prog Jeopardy featurette.
 
Sonically, outstanding audio is delivered by veteran mix engineer by Rich Mouser, who has helmed every Neal Morse, Spock’s Beard, and Transatlantic studio album. The package is presented as either 2 Blu-ray discs, or 2 DVDs with 4 CDs. Digital downloads of the music portion will be available from Radiant Records in uncompressed audio, and on iTunes. The classic Testimony album will also be available for first time, on vinyl.
 
Morsefest 2015 was absolutely incredible for me! We performed QUESTION and SOLA SCRIPTURA plus a lot of other really cool stuff with full choir, horns, orchestral percussion, strings, piano harp, Cuika and dancers! The artwork on the video wall was absolutely mind blowing. Combine that with the atmosphere of the community of fans and the love in the room…it was definitely a peak experience in my career, and I think the DVD and Blu-ray are among the finest we've ever produced. — Neal Morse
 
Morsefest 2015 happened only once. Viewers can now experience it any time, with stunning visuals and audio fidelity. And audiences can hear the next chapter of THE NEAL MORSE BAND, performing THE SIMILITUDE OF DREAM in its entirety, across Europe and selected world locations, throughout the spring of 2017.

SPECIAL NOTICE!
There is something that is incorrect on the package of Morsefest 2015. It is listed in the packaging that there is an item called Prog Jeopardy. It was decided by the producers of the disks that in order to fit the Jeopardy piece the entire content was going to need to be compressed and quality would have been lost so we opted remove it. However, we missed removing it from the artwork. We are sorry for this problem. Below are download links for the missing footage. (Thank you Dale!) - Radiant Records
