For 10 years there had been rumours of BRAND X reuniting, and then in late 2016 it happened. Founding members Percy Jones (Bass), John Goodsall (Guitar) along with longtime Drummer Kenwood Dennard pulled it off – and there was much rejoicing. Completing the band were Keyboard whiz Chris Clark and Percussionist Scott Weinberger. Fast Forward to 2019: Jaw-dropping performances at Ros-Fest, ProgtoberFest, ProgStock and Cruise To The Edge 2019 lead many fans to hail this: “The Best BRAND X of all time!” Rave reviews in The Huffington Post, Progression Mag, New York Times, Innerviews, etc all confidently claimed the new version on par with the old Phil Collins version from back in the day. Nowadays a virtual “Who’s Who” of Rock has come out to catch them live, including members of YES, KING CRIMSON, DREAM THEATRE, STEVE HACKETT, ADRIAN BELEW, FOCUS, THE DIXIE DREGS, , METALLICA, RENAISANCE and others...

In 2017 Dennard secured his professorship at Berklee College in Boston, and in stepped Kenny Grohowski on Drums – and that’s when the flame turned into a full on fire. Kenny G (as he’s affectionately called) helped propel the band to a new level. In 2019 the band started playing shows internationally, and Alex Machacek was roped in. Many see Machacek as “The Next Allen Holdsworth” as he continues to burn it up with Brand X on all international shows. (Don’t worry, Goodsall is healthy and a always a member of brand X -- but he chooses not to travel outside the U.S.)

Some people have said some very nice things – and we didn’t even have to buy them drinks!
#2 Boston Massachusetts Radio, New-Ears FM
#11 Progressive Charts in Prog Magazine
#13 International Sales in Burning Shed
#20 Album in All About Jazz

But our favourite is from a fan in New Jersey who said: “I’ve been playing drums for 30 years, but after seeing this guy Kenny in Brand X, I’m going home to burn my kit – right now!”

See the long awaited reunion up-close and personal on the intimate & candlelit Trading Boundaries Stage!
