Classical rock is coming back as Renaissance celebrates their 40th anniversary with a tour along the East Coast. After some time being broken up, members of the band reunited to create a new album back in 2001. Now, with their mix of jazz, rock and classical music blended with poetic lyrics, the band is ready to introduce their style to a new generation. Renaissance will be playing in NYC at The Concert Hall on Oct. 9. Opening for them on all dates is special guest Jann Klose. Renaissance will be playing in South Orange, NJ, on Oct. 16 at the SOPAC and at the Xanadu Theatre at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City on Oct. 17. myspace.com/renaissanceofficial.
