The Music of Nektar

Formed 1969

Official Site: Nektar

Formed in the late sixties, Nektar was an early prog band consisting of four lads from England who met while on tour in Germany in different bands. The proceeded to make some fine albums, come to the US and they gave a whole new flavor to the musical table. Both their studio LPs and the live recordings are a good representation of the talent within each of the players. The members have changed over the years and the band saw an album with Larry Fast and Dave Nelson replacing Roye on guitar (Magic is a Child). Break-ups, reunions and "Farewell Tours" went on for some time until it seemed they were gone. But, Roye and Ron and some new lads continued to create music and tour under the Nektar banner until Roye's passing in 2016. The music was augmented by the lighting effects by Mick Brockett and Keith Walters.

Roye Albrighton: guitar, vocals
