Andrew Colyer with Progressive Rock Tribute Band Downing Grey – Genesis’ “Firth of Fifth”

While most tribute bands pay homage to one specific band, supergroup Downing Grey pays tribute to the entire genre of progressive rock – covering nine different bands. This Genesis song “Firth of Fifth” is from the 1973 album Selling England by the Pound.

This video was shot live on location at Keegan Ales, Kingston, New York, on December 7th, 2013.  This was lead singer Billy Spillane’s first performance with the band, with only ONE REHEARSAL before the gig!

Genesis are an English rock band that formed in 1967. The band consist of their three longest-tenured members: founding members Tony Banks (keyboards) and Mike Rutherford (bass, guitar); and Phil Collins (vocals, drums), who joined in 1970. Former members Peter Gabriel (vocals, flute), Steve Hackett (guitar) and Anthony Phillips (guitar) also played major roles in the band in its early years. Genesis are among the highest-selling recording artists of all time, with approximately 150 million albums sold worldwide.
