Patrons of the Tarara Concert Series have a special show on tap this Saturday as Prog-Rock pioneers Crack the Sky perform. 

         The West Virginia band broke out to critical acclaim with the 1975 debut album and returned to the charts last year with the release of a new studio album, “Living in Reverse,” with 12 new Beatlesque pop tunes, as well as “Crackology,” which feature new studio recordings of previously released songs.

         While the band toured extensively and opened for acts including Rush, Frank Zappa, Boston, Foreigner, ELO, YES, Styx, Supertramp, Kansas and ZZ Top, it never broke out to a higher level nationally. The band largely went on hiatus in the late 1980s, performing and releasing new material sporadically until last year’s resurgence. 

         The band also has returned to the road with three original members and a string of sold-out shows. The band’s current line upfeatures original members singer-songwriter John Palumbo, Rick Witkowski and Joey D’Amico, along with Glenn Workman, Dave DeMarco, and Bobby Hird.
