Festival News: RoSfest Announces Going For The One - After Hours Party 2011

RoSfest Presents Yes Tribute Band Going For The One For The Friday Night After Hours Party

Going for the One was formed by guitarist John Covach (Land of Chocolate) in the spring of 2009. In a general sense, the group is a Yes tribute band. But from the beginning, Going for the One was conceived more as a repertory ensemble ? that is, a group of musicians dedicated to performing a particular body of music in a way that recreates the original performance approach and sound but is not a slavish or literal imitation.

No costumes, wigs, or phony accents are employed; rather, the band is focused on faithfully performing Yes music in a manner that keeps it fresh and vital. Going for the One debuted in the fall of 2009 and has since kept up a regular pace of live shows throughout the mid-Atlantic and northeastern states.

Covach is joined by founding members Jimmy Warlick (Driven to Tears) on vocals and Chris Meeker (Mind Sky) on bass ? the vocal trio of the band. Matt Riddle (Envision) handles the multi-keyboard duties for the group, while Mark Annal (Driven to Tears) anchors the polymetric rhythmic musical textures on the drums. During the 2010-2011 concert seasons, the band performed The Yes Album to celebrate the 40th anniversary of that classic recording. The current set includes music from The Yes Album, Fragile, Close To The Edge, Yesterdays, and Going For The One.
