A 4 piece, NY/NJ based band paying tribute to the extraordinary musical legacy left by the late Keith Emerson, Greg Lake & still surviving Carl Palmer. We’re a tribute band paying homage to the legacy of the incomparable 70’s symphonic rock band, Emerson, Lake & Palmer. We faithfully reproduce the music that, in the early 70’s, had a powerful & vital impact on the burgeoning music scene at the time. They took classical pieces by the masters - Bach, Tchaikovsky, Bartók, Copeland, Mussorgsky, Ginastera, Brubeck - and reinterpreted them in a way that the original masters could never have foreseen. ELP infused them with the wilder elements of rock ’n roll - distortion, rhythm, power & flash. They established a foundation for future bands such as Yes, Rush, King Crimson, Queen & Dream Theater and raised the bar for rock bands, enticing them to go big or go home by performing this music in concert halls, stadiums & arenas worldwide.
We have grabbed the gauntlet and are attempting to run with it. Please check out our videos on YouTube, peruse our bios & backgrounds on the Manticore - a tribute to ELP Facebook page & tell your Emerson, Lake & Palmer loving friends about us.
