Exploring and rediscovering classic progressive rock, its mindset and integrity, Presto Ballet combines the melodic and harmonic old school aspects with the neo progressive rock sound of today. While their sound is often compared to the early works of Kansas, Rush, and Yes, Presto Ballet still maintains its own identity. The band is bringing back the classical influence in rock and the sense of composition that was so very popular in the early 70s. Presto Ballet is Neo Classic Progressive Rock.
Though Presto Ballet is Neo Prog, the band strives to keep the music melodic and catchy while taking the listener back to a time when melody, harmony and musical skill was paramount. Presto Ballet is also flying the flag for the return to vinyl. While all recordings will be released on CD and other modern mediums, the albums will be designed for the vinyl format first. This means that the records will be around forty minutes long and the artwork will be laid out specifically for album covers.
Having a serious love/hate relationship with modern digital technology, the band incorporates the advantages of the modern ways but yet hangs on to the ethics of the days when you had to be able to play it and sing it.
