Complete live recording of the acclaimed Abacab live show at Progtoberfest 2017.

...they nailed it, to the joy of an enthusiastic, supportive crowd and rave reviews from other acts. They’re already planning to return to Reggie’s in April as a headliner, and for Progtoberfest IV next October.
...nuggets such as “Firth Of Fifth,” “Dance On A Volcano” and “Los Endos” were practically identical to the original concert collection.
—, these guys knocked it out of the park. The set totally exceeded my expectations and they really did a nice job with the whole thing. The vocalist nailed it the whole set. They also had twin drums and everyone was on the mark for the most part.
I’ve seen every Genesis tribute band in the country, and you guys are at the top of that list.
— Kevin Pollack, Concert Promoter
