Italy UK (David Jackson)
ALEX CARPANI BAND
feat. DAVID JACKSON (VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR)
guest: JOE SAL
A suggestive journey where contemporary rock meets classic rock…
In this show ACB meets the legendary sax player of Van der Graaf Generator David Jackson in
a 2-hours show featuring 6 musicians on stage. A rich and suggestive performance where the
audience enjoys the contemporary progressive rock of Alex Carpani (played with Jackson in most
of the songs) and some of the greatest hits of VdGG like Refugees, Darkness, Theme One, Man- Erg,
Killer, My Room. The band also plays Boleas Panic, a song that VdGG never played live!
Joe Sal, the guest vocalist on VdGG songs, will show his amazing talent as well.
ACB & DJ will be touring Europe in 2013 and play in Sweden, Italy, France, Germany, Holland, Belgium.
