It's Thanksgiving and the band gets together at Robert and Sandy's apartment for a truly progressive feast. Robert debuts a heartfelt new song for a less than thrilled Tubbs, and Richard shows up with the latest Genesis album and an old high school friend.
Gemini Rising (a 2009 Webby Honoree) recounts the trials and tribulations of a hard-working, semi-successful 1970's progressive rock band from Levittown, Pennsylvania. The series follows brothers Robert and Richard McKenzie as they lead a colorful band of talented troubadours through an epic struggle to realize a unique sonic vision. An odd mixture of folk, rock n’ roll and opera, Gemini Rising’s music is nothing if not wildly ambitious. With a clueless manager, a neglected girlfriend and an ever-growing number of bandmates in need of direction in tow, frontman Robert desperately tries to keep it all together while establishing his own distinct artistic voice within a cultural landscape mostly indifferent to his band’s unusual musical explorations. In true prog fashion, Gemini Rising invoke the higher powers governing time and space in a bold bid for rock immortality.
