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 Emerson Lake & Palmer (ELP) piece “Tarkus (Part 1: Eruption)” is the opening track from ELP’s 1971 album Tarkus. This video was shot live on location at Keegan Ales, Kingston, New York, on December 7th, 2013.
