NEKTAR - the legendary psychedelic/progressive/classic rock band => BOOKING + NEW ALBUM 

"The Other Side"
new album

The Legendary Rock Band are recording a new album!
This is the first new studio album made
in the United States since 1977!!

The original members of NEKTAR:
Derek "Mo" Moore (bass guitar, back vocals),
Ron Howden (drums, back vocals)
and Mick Brockett (lights and visuals),
with Ryche Chlanda (guitar, lead vocals) from the 1978' band
and Randy Dembo (12-strings guitar, bass guitar) from the 2005 band,
and newcomer Kendall Scott (keyboards).

The music for our new album "The Other Side" comes from the 1978 era
when the band was writing in Mo's basement in Chatham, New Jersey.
This music was put on pause for the last 40 years and it's now time to
release it with new input and fresh ideas.

NEKTAR has started a Kickstarter campaign
to fund the recording of the new album!

NEKTAR wil perform one exclusive show the Fall at the ProgStock Festival in Rahway, NJ on October 13, 2019. The band will tour in 2020 and 2021.

What are next steps for Nektar?

The reason NEKTAR is on Kickstarter is to generate the necessary funds and freedom to do this album in a suitable manner without a record company. NEKTAR would like to release a CD, a DVD on the "Making of the New Album", and writing and tweaking of the music. A double-vinyl album, all with excellent artwork by the band's friend and collaborator Helmut Wenske, the original artist in the tradition of classic NEKTAR. After the album is released, in 2020, NEKTAR will make a Blu-Ray DVD with the light show and the fans, can have music and visuals that you can take home with you.

NEKTAR also need to set up touring to bring the music and the visual light show to you throughout 2020. In order to give NEKTAR's fans, the band's unique experience, and NEKTAR needs your help.
