For 10 years there had been rumours of BRAND X reuniting, and then in late 2016 it happened. Founding members Percy Jones (Bass), John Goodsall(Guitar) along with longtime Drummer Kenwood Dennard pulled it off – and there was much rejoicing. Completing the band were Keyboard whiz Chris Clark and Percussionist Scott Weinberger. Fast Forward to 2019: Jaw-dropping performances at Ros-Fest, ProgtoberFest, ProgStockand Cruise To The Edge 2019 lead many fansto hailthis: “The Best BRAND X of all time!”Rave reviews in The Huffington Post, Progression Mag, New York Times, Innerviews, etcall confidently claimed the new version on par with the old Phil Collins version from back in the day. Nowadays a virtual “Who’s Who” of Rock has come out to catch them live, including members of YES, KING CRIMSON, DREAM THEATRE, STEVE HACKETT, ADRIAN BELEW, FOCUS, THE DIXIE DREGS, , METALLICA, RENAISANCEand others...
In 2017 Dennard secured his professorship atBerkleeCollege in Boston, and in stepped Kenny Grohowskion Drums –and that’s when the flame turned into a full on fire. Kenny G (ashe’s affectionately called)helped propel the band to a new level. In2019 the band started playing shows internationally, and Alex Machacekwas roped in. Many see Machacekas “The Next Allen Holdsworth” as he continues to burn it up with Brand X on all international shows. (Don’t worry, Goodsallis healthy and a always a member of brand X --but he chooses not to travel outside the U.S.)
Some people have said some very nice things – and we didn’t even have to buy them drinks!

But our favourite is from a fan in New Jersey who said: “I’ve been playing drums for 30 years, but after seeing this guy Kenny in Brand X, I’m going home to burn my kit – right now!”
See the long awaited reunion up-close and personal on the intimate & candlelit Trading Boundaries Stage!

For the safety of all our guests and staff please read the following safety policy. We are implementing the below measures during a trial period of 3 months for all of our upcoming events between 1st August and 31st October.
We have spent the past few weeks discussing becoming 'vaccine only' with both concert-goers and bands and have had overwhelming support for our approach, so we hope you will find our announcement a relief, and for those of you who do not agree with our policy we hope you understand that our decision has been made in the spirit of safety.
We very much look forward to the time when things can return to normal and that we can welcome everybody back without these precautions.
If the above works for you...we look forward to seeing you at the show!
