Solent Area Prog's 5th anniversary
JHB Rescheduled from 08/11/20
When they performed John’s Satie-inspired, flute-led number, ‘Overnight Snow’, I was in heaven…the gorgeous ‘Satellite’ was followed by the rock-out ‘Ego & Id’ with its Zeppelin-esque guitar riff. The rousing encore ‘Red Hair’ closed the show and I wanted to see it all again. Roll on next year!”
(Dave Kennedy, Classic Rock Society Magazine)
Progressive rock flute player, guitarist, keyboard player and singer, John is best known for his work with his brother Steve Hackett, the former Genesis guitarist. Since 1975 he has recorded and toured with Steve in Europe, USA and Japan alongside a career as a solo flautist and session player. He is joined by guitar virtuoso, Nick Fletcher, Duncan Parsons on drums and Jeremy Richardson on bass and vocals.
2019 saw the John Hackett Band make their European ‘live’ debut at Prog Dreams in Holland, alongside selected UK dates, featuring material from across John’s solo career, the critically acclaimed debut album from the John Hackett Band, ‘We Are Not Alone’ and from the John Hackett-Nick Fletcher album, ‘Beyond The Stars’ (2018), both released by Esoteric Antenna.
The gig arranged for the 1865 in 2020 had to be cancelled because of Covid restrictions, so this will see their first visit since September 2019
