NJProghouse Presents: Morglbl, Ad Astra, Jimmy Robinson
Often described as Primus meets Steve Vai or The Beatles meet Pantera, Mörglbls output veers toward the crazy, mixing substantial metal riffs with subtle jazz harmonies, deep pocket grooves, and their trademark goofball humor. Through two decades of performing and touring internationally and reaping well-earned critical acclaim from journalists around the globe on their six full-length albums, Mörglbl is an undeniably unique and creative musical force which transcends genre barriers and commands the attention of anybody into forward-thinking music with a lighthearted appeal. Mörglbl hits like a heavyweight jab and makes you laugh while you bleed. Seat belts are optional, but highly recommended.
Mörglbls The Story Of Scott Rötti was recorded at The Beat Factory during the Summer of 2018, mixed by Enzo DAgostino at Elia Studio, mastered by Mobo at Conkrete Studio, and completed with artwork by Pierre Bernard and Peter Puke.
AD ASTRA is an Instrumental Progressive Rock/Fusion band that has been active in the NYC/LI music scene for over 10 years. With a clear focus on melody and arrangement, on top of complex rhythm and harmony, their songs always keep your interest and never sound monotonous.
They've released two CDs of material and are writing for a third. Recent highlights include multiple performances at the New Jersey ProgHouse, a show with world-renowned bassist Stu Hamm, a blistering 90-minute set at the 2016 ProgDay International Progressive Rock Festival, a performance at the 2018 Progtoberfest Prog Festival and a
show at the historic My Fathers Place on Long Island.
They continue to book shows locally and outside their home-base, while writing new material to showcase live before hitting the studio for their highly anticipated third release.
Jimmy Robinson has been recording and touring for over 40 years. He has received critical and audience praise for his unique virtuoso approach to the guitar, and his rich compositional skill.
Jimmy first made a name for himself playing electric guitar and leading the psychedelic rock/blues band Ejaculation (yes, you read correctly, it was 1968, after all) at the Free Concert weekly series on New Orleans Riverfront.. He went on to front The Progrock band Laugh In The Dark in the 70s, and in 1975 founded the celebrated instrumental rock fusion band Woodenhead. Woodenhead performs today, and is celebrating their 40th anniversary with a special performance at The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival in May, 2015, as well as releasing a recording of new material, a live concert from New Orleans famed Tipitinas and a reissue of their entire, remastered catalog.
He also founded the New Orleans Guitar Collective Twangorama, with guitarists Phil deGruy and Cranston Clements, and later The New Orleans Guitar Quartet.
Jimmy studied classical guitar and composition at Loyola University in New Orleans and The Eastman School Of Music in New York. He combined these elements with his electric experience to forge the solo acoustic style that he now tours with.
