Sun Domingo are a Florida based Alternative-Progressive Rock band who have released 2 albums and have toured North America and Europe over the past several years, slowly building a strong steady following with their catchy, thoughtful and intense styles. This tight 4-piece band features Kyle Corbett on Vocals and Guitar, Edgel Groves Jr on BVox and Guitar, Daniel Gordon on Bass, Keys and BVox, and Rodrigo Velente on Drums. At times they fall into Crowded House territory and other times they are more King Crimson.
With 4 excellent singers their harmonies are fantastic both on record and in a live setting. My first introduction to the band was in 2009 when they opened for Marillion at their first North American Convention. It was an impressive set of material that caught everyone’s attention. Two years later, on Friday April 8 2011 my band Tempus Fugit played a show with Sun Domingo at Brutopia in Montreal during the afternoon prior to the first night of the 2nd North American Marillion Convention. The band returned to Canada in December 2011 where they played their entire 2nd album Songs For End Times, as well as all of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon. The Toronto show was impressive to say the least.
Following my interview with Steve Rothery and Pete Trewavas of Marillion on Wednesday June 20, 2012, I caught up with Kyle Corbett (Vocals, Guitar) and Edgel Groves Jr. (BVox, Guitar) prior to sound check as they just pass the half way point opening for Marillion on their current North American Tour. Read on after the break!
