We begin our first feature on the artists and bands on the upcoming Cruise to the Edge with something a bit different. The After Hours Electric Prog Jam was something that happened rather organically during the 2013 Cruise to the Edge. A bunch of musicians and guests were looking for something to do after all the performances have ended and that created this jam session. It grew as some the band’s musicians joined in. Who doesn’t want the chance to play with and for members of Yes? It expanded on the 2014 cruise and now because of the high demand for participation, there is quite a detailed signup process.
Info on how to signup and join in on the jam session can be found on the AHEPJ website: http://www.ahepj.com/play_how_it_works.html
Here is a video of a bunch of fans playing “The Gates of Delerium.” Current Yes members, Geoff Downes, Jon Davison and Chris Squire, along with past member, Patrick Moraz were in the audience.
