We're pleased to announce that the band has augmented to include its two newest talented members:

guitarist Greg Katona,

and Brett Bottomley on bass and Chapman Stick®.

Greg is known for his work w/ the Genesis tribute band, FOXTROT ( http://foxtrottheband.com/ ) and is also a guitar instructor at Monmouth Academy of the Musical Arts in Marlboro, New Jersey. He will be joining guitarist Alan Benjamin in creating the wonderful moods and complex arrangements of both the debut cd and Cantus Firmus.

Brett has an extensive jazz background and has attended the Berklee College of music. With Brett, and drummer Drew Siciliano (whose jazz background is also quite broad), Advent's newly formed rhythm section will no doubt be explosive, but it will also add a very appropriate touch of class that can only come from the likes of Brett and Drew.

More info on Greg may be found at Advent's bio page:
http://www.adventmusic.net/bio.html (and that link will also be updated in the near future to include Brett's bio - so, check back for that soon).

Congratulations to these two fine gentlemen, who have now made Advent a six-piece (w/o biscuit, as my wife likes to say...).

We're very glad to have them onboard.

 
Stairway to Heaven

Cindy Pearlman of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that comedian Jack Black tried to use LED ZEPPELIN's most famous song title, "Stairway to Heaven", in his new movie "Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny". Permission was granted by the band — but after the scene was filmed, the ZEPPELIN members demanded to pull their song title from the gag.

The scene is in a mock Rock and Roll Hall of Fame set in California. The deal was: All rock groups depicted in this faked museum had to give permission to use their name, likeness, music and/or song titles. Black and his "D" partner Kyle Gass have a moment when they climb a huge staircase with a flashing neon sign "Stairway to Heaven."

"THE BEATLES said yes to having their image in the scene. Many groups said no problem," says "D" director Liam Lynch. "ZEPPELIN was a problem. They gave us permission and withdrew it after we filmed the scene with a huge 'Stairway to Heaven.' They said no and we had to re-shoot that part of the movie."

"We ended up calling the staircase 'Guitarway to Heaven,' " says Lynch. "And we were like f--- you. I don't really want to get into it more. We also had problems with the SEX PISTOLS."

For his part, Black isn't upset with the rock legends. "We liked 'Guitarway to Heaven.' It sounded a little dumber, which made me happy," says the comic rocker.
