World class artists and live DVD add excitement to 4th annual event

ASHEVILLE, N.C., Aug. 10, 2007 — B.B. King’s Blues Club in New York City will once again open its doors to Moogfest, the annual festival commemorating and celebrating the groundbreaking achievements of maverick inventor Robert Moog and his namesake synthesizer. Slated for 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 22, the fourth annual Moogfest will once again be a synthesizer fan’s dream.

Already scheduled to perform are renowned keyboardists and long-standing Moog users Thomas Dolby, Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater), Adam Holzman (Miles Davis), Spiraling, Don Preston (Frank Zappa/Mothers of Invention), Gershon Kingsley, Herb Deutsch and Erik Norlander, among others. In addition to performing, Gershon Kingsley and Herb Deutsch will be receiving the Bob Moog Legacy Award, recognizing their unique, lasting artistry as expressed through Moog instruments.

Although many acts have been signed, the search for the opening performer continues. As was the case for Moogfests in years past, artists and bands have been invited to submit their music for a chance to open the show. Submissions are being accepted through August 20, and the winner will be announced on August 31. For more details, visit www.sonicbids.com/moogfest2007.

In addition, Moog has released a DVD of Moogfest 2006, available through Moog’s web site. The DVD sells for $17.95 and includes live performances by Keith Emerson, Jan Hammer, Roger O’Donnell (The Cure), DJ Logic and many others.

B.B. King’s Blues Club is located at 237 West 42nd Street, between 7th and 8th Avenues. Tickets for this special event, produced by Charles Carlini of the Carlini Group, are $45 and are available through B.B. King’s box office ((212) 997-4144) and all Ticketmaster outlets.
