Yes Tribute: Awaken
AWAKEN: A Tribute to the Music of Yes, is simply the finest recreation of live Yes music in the world. 50 years of Yes performances have been studied and examined to create the Awaken concert experience. From pre-concert walk-in music, to projection screen content, up to the order of songs in the setlist. Every aspect of an Awaken performance is based on a genuine and authentic homage to the original artists.
It is important to remember that Yes fans are music fans first and foremost. Therefore, attention to musical detail is Awaken’s top priority. Every song Awaken performs is painstakingly analyzed and meticulously rehearsed before it hits the stage to ensure a flawless performance. As a result, Awaken has enjoyed the privilege of playing in some of the Northeast’s finest theaters and casinos, as well as garnering praise worldwide from not only the biggest Yes fans, but from members of Yes itself!
Jon Anderson, the lead vocalist and founder of Yes, claims that “[Awaken is] damn good.” He went on to say that he finds Awaken’s renditions ‘wonderful’ and that the performances are ‘musically spot on.
