A girl stuck between hell and forever. A zealot bent on redemption. Bitter loyalties shatter.

The members of Progressive Dementia have progressive rock chops and a class clown mentality. Their performances are nuanced yet perverse, and can include symphonic complexity, metallic intensity, and the lead singer dressing up as a carrot all in the same song. They could play classical or jazz, yet they play this. Lead singer Bryan Zeigler describes their work as "complicated songs about stupid things," and though they do not take themselves seriously, they have an incredible passion for complex, yet accessible music with a sense of humor and very little conceptual restraint.
actor w a career, comedian with a career and now semi pro boxer w a black eye...I aint no waiter... yeah lets all be afraid of what "people" will think --GREAT IDEA!!--
