Geoff Banks memorial show sees a bevy of prog stars take to the stage
Tonight constitutes a memorial show for former journalist, band manager, promoter and prog evangelist Geoff Banks who passed away in November 2015.
The Gift come on to a small but enthusiastic crowd of early birds with a sound reminiscent of former Banks charges, IQ. Frontman Mike Morton looks like he’s having the time of his life even when gremlins strike the band’s keyboard rig. New songs Sweeper Of Dreams and At Sea hint at mythological Genesis epics but it’s the rockier closer Too Many Hands that most impresses.
