Long Ago IN TIMES OF OLDE there was Magic in the Air.  A new day dawned with a Song of Hope and music was everywhere…

Renaissance Rock Orchestra’s music combines elements of classic rock, progressive metal and symphonic influences into a highly energetic and beautiful blend of powerful, spellbinding rock majesty. Recordings and concerts by this “Super Group” include performances by legendary rock artists such as Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees:

Also featuring amazing musicians such as: 

RRO delivers melodic, technically brilliant, and dynamic music that takes you through time and space for a musical experience beyond mere imagination. With influences from bands such as Yes, Dream Theater, Symphony X and Trans-Siberian Orchestra, RRO has created a powerful symphonic-rock sound, combining elements from the classical, prog and metal elite — forging them into their own shimmering blade of sonic metal. 

RRO performances are known for being highly energetic sonic and visual experiences with a live orchestra, state-of-the-art digital graphics and sound, and often include elaborate theatrical presentations with dancers and actors.

RRO’s In Times of Olde has broken new ground in the world of progressive metal and symphonic rock.  It is a definite “must-have” for anyone who is into powerful and epic melodic metal.

We are excited about the response and feedback this orchestra is receiving from fans worldwide and we look to the future with huge vision and great anticipation.

We hope to see you at one of our shows soon!

Fox has performed at the Academy Of Country Music Awards live for 36 million people watching on CBS, toured the country extensively with Louis Prima Jr. and The Witnesses including numerous TV spots on WGN TV & FOX 5 TV , performed Jazzfest in New Orleans and the Hollywood Walk Of Fame star presentation for Louis Prima, recorded and performed with original rock groups “Beggars & Thieves” , “King Kobra” and “Vargas, Bogert & Appice” with Quiet Riot vocalist Paul Shortino and legendary drummer Carmine Appice, played for AGT winner Michael Grimm at his Grand Opening at The Flamingo, performed at the massive Bottlerock Festival in Napa Valley and has been seen coast to coast twice on Access Hollywood “Live” TV.

Gregg was recently honored with an invitation to perform at NAMM 2013 for the “Living Legends” concert series where he performed with Alan White ( Yes), Robin McAuley (McAuley Schenker Group- Survivor), John Payne (Asia), Frankie Banali ( Quiet Riot), Richie Castillano & Jules Radino ( Blue Oyster Cult) and Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden).

Raised in the Pacific Northwest, keyboard player Gregg Fox began playing piano at the age of five. A lifetime of playing music and sitting at the piano has allowed it to become second nature to him. He played piano and violin throughout his scholastic years which lead to learning guitar and bass. Soon after he began to write his own music. By the the time Gregg graduated High School he had performed for thousands of listeners and received numerous awards.

His early influences included The Beatles, Elton John and Led Zeppelin but it was when he first heard the music of Yes, Emerson, Lake and Palmer and Deep Purple that his passion for keyboards launched him on a musical journey in the tradition of the great rock and progressive rock keyboardists Rick Wakeman, Keith Emerson and Jon Lord. That journey continues to this day.

In his early career Fox polished his skills and performance abilities in the Pacific Northwest among many of the musical elite of Seattle. As a driving force of such successful club and touring acts as Ictus, Metro and Radio City, during the 80′s and 90′s he played every venue and recorded tracks in every studio in Seattle while working in multiple original and touring projects simultaneously. This led to his being asked to join Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members from Heart, guitarist Roger Fisher and drummer Michael DeRosier, in the noted original Seattle band “10 Bulls”. He then joined with Queensryches fem-fatale Pamela Moore to form “Sister Mary”, produced and occasionally joined on stage by Hearts’ own guitarist Howard Leese.

As a skilled studio musician and session player Fox adds his rich keyboard tonalities and sound programming ingenuity to music of all types and does session work for many artists all around the country.

Besides being the creator, composer and keyboardist for The Renaissance Rock Orchestra and touring and recording as the resident keyboard player for Louis Prima Jr. and The Witnesses Fox also plays keyboards regularly in Las Vegas for Led Zeppelin All-Star band “The Moby Dicks” where he shares the stage with talented artists like Bonham/Lynchmob vocalist Chas West and a plethora of luminary musicians including monster drummers Brian Tichy ( Whitesnake/Foreigner), Frankie Banali ( Quiet Riot) and Vinnie Appice.

Currently as the keyboardist for “The Renaissance Rock Orchestra”, “Louis Prima Jr. and The Witnesses” and “The Moby Dicks” keyboardist Gregg Fox continues to amaze audiences with his wild energetic stage presence and his exciting blend of classical keyboard skills combined with many years of powerful rock experience.
