Such an interesting collaboration of talent!  Co-founder and vocalist for the progressive rock band Yes for many years, Jon Anderson and French electric violin virtuoso, Jean Luc Ponty, have formed the Anderson Ponty Band and are performing tonight at the Music Hall Center in Detroit.

The Anderson ponty band has produced and released it’s first album “Better Late Than never”

We can expect to see both Yes and Ponty music interspersed throughout the performance.

I recently had a chance to chat with both artists.
