Close the Box is coming to Fender Center! Saturday April 5th, Bill Giles (bass), Casey Jones (vocals, acoustic guitar), Scott Grant (keyboards, vocals), Alex Zimmer (guitar), Paul Zimmer (drums), and Lee Zimmer (guitar, vocals) will perform hits from your Prog Rock favorites.

A band made up of highly accomplished and diverse musicians, Close the Box joined together to perform music that spans four decades of the best progressive rock. Close the Box pays homage to the prog rock genre that has produced some of the most inspiring and influential music: Yes, Rush, Gentle Giant, King Crimson, Genesis, and more.

Opening for Close the Box is Nature by Numbers. Nature by Numbers is a progressive, experimental rock band that formed in 2010. Their members include Garret Bever (guitar), Chris Golen (bass), John Hoik (drums), Thomas Golden (vocals), and Joel Martinez (guitar). These five have worked tirelessly to redefine and craft an original sound. On Facebook.

All this for only $10 per ticket!

Kids Rock Free student tickets are only $5. Concert proceeds will support the Kids Rock Free® (KRF) music education at Fender Center. These talented musicians are donating their time and talent to raise funds to purchase updated sound recording equipment for student learning and use. Sound engineering has exploded in recent years. KRF wants to share this important component of music education with its current and future students. The audience can expect the regular Rhythm Lounge treatment with a cash bar for the over 21 set, sandwiches and soft drinks for purchase and a raffle of rock memorabilia.
