 LEAD VOCALS:

DEVORA GOLDMAN - BROOKSVILLE,FL

Lead Vocals (also backing vocals, acoustic guitar, mellotron) - - 5th CTTE - - Favorite Artists: Carole King, John Denver, Evanescence, Garth Brooks, Carrie Underwood, Depeche Mode

My earliest musical memories were listening to Carole King and John Denver on my parents huge stereo, Big Bands coming through Grandmas radio, and music in Temple. I probably sung before I spoke. I was always singing. My parents indulged me by taking me to my favorite restaurants where I could listen to live music. I sang in choir in Temple, then High School and college choirs. I became a music teacher so I could...that's right...keep singing! I sang to my babies and now I sing to my goats! If something comes up in conversation that can be sung to, I'll sing it! I guess I could say "I sing, therefore I am!"

JEANIE FLOWERS - OXNARD,CA

Lead Vocals (also backing vocals, acoustic guitar) - - 1st CTTE - - Favorite Artists: Seal, CSN&Y, Ambrosia, Jackson Browne, Yes, Kansas, Joe Jackson, James Taylor, Pat Metheny, Pink Floyd, Spock's Beard, Steely Dan

Once upon a time I had a life. Then I had kids. You know the story. The good news is, my kids turned out to be pretty freakin' awesome, and (surprise!), kids grow up!

So now I find myself in a position to rediscover my Once-Upon-A-Time musical life. To summarize the last (mumble mumble) years, my parents were musicians, but I think I turned out all right anyway. Picked up the guitar at 12, immediately started writing songs. Picked up (well, not LITERALLY) the piano around 16... kept writing and singing, joined a folk-rock band, married the guitar player, we joined a progressive rock band, barely escaped with our lives, started a country covers band (hey, it put me through college!), studied music and started doing our originals in a country rock band... Kids happened. I became a church worship leader, but I got better (don't get me started!)... time passed... kept the kids, didn't keep the guitar player/husband. Learned to laugh again :D

My daughter Rachel is producing my first album, and my son Vaughan is helping me with the cover art. Put those kids to work, I say! And I do the mom thing, helping them to maximize their awesomeness... which is usually pretty easy!

And now I get to play music with you!  It just keeps getting better.

MIRANDA HOFFMANN - SPARTA,NJ

Lead Vocals/Backing Vocals - - 2nd CTTE - Favorite Artists - - Phil Collins, Beatles, Meatloaf, Rush, Genesis, Renaissance, Yes

I am currently a Junior at Montclair State University studying Early Childhood Education, with Musical Theater Minor. I have been singing as long as I can remember. I have performed as both a lead character and ensemble member in High School musicals such as Oliver, Oklahoma & The Wedding Singer.

VERONIKA HORVEN JENSEN - SPYDEBERG,NORWAY

Lead Vocalist - - 2nd CTTE - - Favorite Artists: Marillion, Genesis (Hackett era), King Crimson, Frank Zappa, Depeche Mode, Porcupine Tree, Riverside, Mr Bungles

Music and live shows especially is one of my favorite things in the world!
The emotional and creative connection only music can generate means the world to me, whether I'm on stage or in the audience. I live for the brief moments of eye-contact and shared admiration or hilarity that may occur :D

After dreaming about this for years, this year's incredible line-up finally tipped me over the edge ;)

PATRICK IGOE - PHILADELPHIA,PA

Lead Vocals (also keyboards, guitar) - - 3rd CTTE - - Favorite Artists: Yes, Marillion, Genesis, King Crimson, ELP, Styx, Neal Morse Band, Spock's Beard, Steven Wilson

Lead singer for Philadelphia-area tribute bands Afterimage (Rush), since 2006, and Know Return (Kansas), since 2013. Occasional keyboards and guitar.   Discovered Yes, Genesis, and Asia as a young teen as their early 80s hits were released, then worked my way backward into 70s prog.  Patent attorney by trade. Dad to an eight-year-old boy.

DENNIS MAHON - PASADENA,CA

Lead Vocals (also bass, drums, guitar, keyboard) - - 5th CTTE - - Favorite Artists: John Wetton, UK, Asia, KIng Crimson, Elton John, Roxy Music, Be Bop Deluxe, No Small Children, Dangerous Stranger, Yes, ELP, etc.

I am building a fighting force of extraordinary magnitude. You have my gratitude. I'll need a dozen towels so the boys can take a shower. Less than if, is more than but, why times equals sometimes not. I am a lesbian trapped in a man's body.

SCOTT MEDINA - BOULDER,CO

Lead & Backing Vocals (also acoustic guitar) - - 4th CTTE - - Favorite Artists: Spock's, Neal Morse Band, Porcupine Tree/Wilson projects, Yes, Anathema, most symphonic prog bands, world music, new age, and more!

I'm a huge prog rock advocate/fan/zealot. The last two CTTE's and one PNAS cruises I've been on have been some of the highest times of my life. I love music of all styles as well, especially world music, folk and new age/instrumental, but the past 5 years I've mostly been listening to modern prog bands. My main musical outlet is leading evenings of ecstatic chant, also known as Kirtan. This is a spiritual practice that is lovely to offer with groups of people, so I am used to leading crowds of a dozen or a hundred or more. My wife and I also lead workshops and events with chanting as a prime focus. I also am a kids' music performer and pretty much have an acoustic guitar in my hands on a daily basis, though 99% of what I play is much simpler than the prog repertoire. I have released several CD's of my original chanting music, a CD of instrumental finger style guitar and a DVD of my kids music. I also have worked with the homeless community in my hometown of Boulder, Colorado for the past 15 years. 

Please connect with me on Facebook if we're not already "friends" there. I also share a website with my wife for more info on our chanting and events schedule: www.ScottandShanti.com.  I can't wait to continue the prog music adventure on CTTE and beyond! See you there!...

ED MULHALL - LAKELAND,FL

Lead & Backing Vocals (also bass/rhythm guitar) - - 5th CTTE - - Favorite Artists: Yes, Genesis, The Beatles, King Crimson, UK, ELP, Todd Rundgren, Paul McCartney, Gentle Giant, Echolyn, Lifesigns, Dave Kerzner Band, Kansas, Jethro Tull, Caravan, The Moody Blues

I'm a musician who is getting back into the world of bands and performance after two decades of children/jobs/responsibilities. I've never had a lesson in my life, yet I'm one of those people who can pick up an instrument and 'figure out' how to play songs I've only heard once or twice. I grew up in a home with two older sisters, one into Broadway Shows, The Brooklyn Bridge and Streisand, the other into the Beatles/Monkees/Paul Revere & the Raiders as well as the current music of the time. As a child I was told I was naturally musically gifted, yet my parents refused to get me lessons or allow me to take any music related courses in school. Instead of being allowed to following my bliss, I entered the working world and have toiled there for many years. Now that I'm older, the music has called me back and thanks to Late Night Live and the wonderful players within, I've rekindled that side of my being. I'm primarily a bass player or rhythm guitarist, yet I've been primarily singing lead vocals in Late Night Live. Big "Thank You’s" to Larry Morand, Rob Rutz and the OTB Crew for making it possible, but BIG love to Bill Goldman, Devora Goldman, Ken Slater, Joel Simches, Carolyn Corella, Bob Harris, Suzanne Mulhall and the rest of the Late Night Live FAMILY for encouraging me out of my shell and back on a stage where I belong. Thanks guys!

SOLNY PALSDOTTIR - ICELAND

Lead & Backing Vocals - - 4th CTTE - Favorite Artists: None Stated

I have always loved to sing and perform with people who share the same passion for music as I.  When I was in college I was a singer in band who mostly played at balls, but we also liked writing songs. I have sung a few songs on albums, including ones that my mother has written. It's amazing to have the chance to sing prog music with all these wonderful people that come together on this trip..

LOY PESCIO - BUENOS AIRES,ARGENTINA

Lead & Backing Vocals - - 4th CTTE - - Favorite Artists: Marillion, Neal Morse Band, Flying Colors, Anathema, Haken, Dream Theater, Steve Hackett

Like many other singers, I took my first steps at the school choir, I started guitar lessons when I think about the music that built me, the first memories that come to mind are my Dad and Brother at home, listening to all these great bands, such as Van Halen, Led Zeppelin, Vangelis, Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, UK and Tangerine Dream just to name a few. However, not everything unfolded so smoothly in my life. At the age of 17 I became a Mom, so the main focus became work and study to support my family and secure my future. Still, I was far away from abandoning my musical aspirations. So I continued singing in the choir, traveling to choir meetings, and this became the background music of this new chapter of my life. Years went by and in 2005 my music journey took me to a Dream Theater concert where I met Gustavo Ceaglio, who would become my partner in life and guitar player. And it was not long after that, when we decided to jump into, what I call, the “Marillion experience”.


We were part of a PROGFEST in our city, during 4 consecutive years.  I had honor of singing with Clive Nolan. Meanwhile in 2014, thanks to the generous and kind Steve Rothery, we got the opportunity to play together, right after a week Marillion’s gig in Argentina.  In 2015 the members from Fugazi, tribute band from Santiago, Chile invited me to sing too. Counting the days 2 meet U

SUZANNE REARDON-MULHALL - LAKELAND,FL

Lead & Backing Vocals - - 5th CTTE - - Favorite Artists: Marillion, Lifesigns, Echolyn, October Project

I grew up in a house where my older siblings had control of the stereo, so I was influenced by their love of Yes, Pink Floyd, CSNY, and many others. I started singing in elementary school, and that continued, with piano and voice lessons in middle and high school. My enjoyment of music lead to becoming a DJ, first at a low-wattage station on Long Island, then in college, and then professionally in Western Maryland.  My dad wanted me to major in music in college, but as a mediocre piano player, I didn't see much happening for a singer with a music degree except for teaching, and I didn't want to do that (surprise, I went back to school and work in an education role!) Nowadays, you'll find me singing the harmony lines along with whatever is playing on the car stereo. That could be 80's new wave, jazz, or more likely, Marillion, Rush, Genesis, Echolyn, or October Project.

ROB RUTZ - MECHANICSBURG,PA

Lead & Backing Vocals (also drums) - - 5th CTTE - - Favorite Artists: Genesis, Kevin Gilbert, Peter Gabriel, Spock's Beard, Toto, Ambrosia, Enchant, Chicago, Saga

Rob serves CTTE's Late Night LIVE Prog Experience as project coordinator and master of ceremonies, working closely with fellow all-volunteer Late Night Production team colleagues and the senior management of Cruise To The Edge's producer On The Blue (OTB). CTTE's Late Night LIVE program is possibly the largest volunteer project in Rob's adult life, which says a lot about the scope of Late Night LIVE. As background, Rob is the artist relations coordinator for global webcast radio station House of Prog (www.houseofprog.com). He also volunteers on ProgStock Music Festival's management team, a New Jersey-based festival. Rob is drummer-vocalist in a classic rock cover band Argyle Bananas, which he founded with his son TJ and local musician friends.  A lifelong music scene fanatic and broadcast buff, Rob began his official work in the music industry as a 13-year-old founder of WMSS-FM, a terrestrial radio station. Launched by junior high school students, WMSS is still in operation today in Middletown, Pennsylvania. Including Cruise To The Edge, Rob and his family have been on more than 24 cruises "of all kinds" including every Moody Blues Cruise since its founding. Rob is thrilled and honored to be a part of CTTE's Late Night LIVE family and encourages everyone to be involved, especially as an active patron in the audience cheering on those who work so hard and offer such talent to the cause.

LEAD & RHYTHM GUITAR:

RICK ARMSTRONG - CINCINNATI,OH

Guitar (also bass guitar, piano) - - 5th CTTE - - Favorite Artists: Marillion, many other prog bands....

I've been all into progressive rock since the early 70s. My favorite band is Marillion, and I am currently the side guitarist for Edison's Children.

ZEE BAIG - CHICAGO,IL

Zee founded a music project called Fire Garden in Chicago in 2011. The music fuses progressive rock with a wide range of styles such as rock, industrial, jazz, and metal. Their main philosophy is to portray emotions with sound and lyrics without compromising the soul of music.

Fire Garden with 2 full-length records Far and Near (2016) featuring Jordan Rudess, Jimmy Keegan and Sound of Majestic Colors (2014) along with one EP The Prelude (2012) continues to breaching all the rules on exploration to define its own sound.
