ABOUT THE PERFORMER
Springer was formed by guitarist Eric Johnson formally of 80’s hair band Stryper (as well as Trip Hammer and Black Eyed Rosie). Seasoned guitarist Kenny Ferguson (50/50, Puddle, Drama Queen) joins forces with Eric to create the Springer twin guitar attack.
The silk to sandpaper dual vocal prowess of national touring singers Jeremy “Jed” Seaver (Hate Machine, Omniblank, Heaviest Thing) and Josh Simmonds (Starlight Cities, Ignite Autumn) is a power combo that the two drive together with extreme finesse and emotion.
Bassist Mark Iannitti (Ibex, Wicked World) and acclaimed drummer Dom Ciaccia (Acoustic Brew, Something Else, Puddle) create the bands dynamic and hard driving rhythm section.
Springer brings a “must see” concert-like experience with a state of the art light and laser show that is sure to leave you musically and visually fulfilled. Their re-creations of the modern hard rock bands that they tribute will mesmerize audiences and keep them wanting more.
As of today, we are being advised by the Monroe County Health Department that we will be unable to hold the 2020 Rochester Lilac Festival during the originally planned timeframe of May 8th -17th. As you can imagine, this is painful for all of us. However, we are hopeful and optimistic that we will be able to reschedule.
As time progresses, and more information is known, we’ll be letting you, our valued Festival participants and attendees know if, and when we plan to reschedule the Festival.
Hang in there and stay healthy.
