Red Bazar

Red Bazar formed in 2007 as an instrumental trio featuring Andy Wilson on guitar, Paul Comerie on drums and Mick Wilson on bass and keyboards. The line-up released two albums, ‘Connections’ and ‘Differential Being’, and a three track EP, ‘Beyond The Ice Storm’. The releases were well received by audiences and critics alike and the band developed a reputation for their live performances. To expand on the sound, the band recruited keyboard player Gary Marsh and soon after teamed up with singer and multi-instrumentalist Peter Jones.
This line up released the first Red Bazar vocal album, ‘Tales From The Bookcase’. The album was voted runner up in the Classic Rock Society album of the year awards 2016 and appeared in a number of top 10 album listings including magazines, radio stations and internet sites. Progressive Aspect reported ‘Red Bazar may just have released one of the Prog albums of the year’. The band played a large number of gigs throughout 2016 and 2017 and featured on a number of festivals and continued to develop their live performance and show.
2019 saw the release of the latest album ‘Things As They Appear’ which the band followed up with a series of gigs throughout the first part of the year. The album has retained the bands prog foundations but added a more direct and rockier sound which has broadened the fan base. Both the album and the live shows have received high praise resulting in Red Bazar being offered further gigs and festival appearances for 2020.
December will see the release of a live DVD filmed at the album launch of Things As They Appear at the Borderij in the Netherlands. The band is currently writing new tracks for the next album which will be released later in 2020.
