We are pleased to announce a great event for all The Alan Parsons Project fans, a unique opportunity not only to spend a day with the music that we love, but above all to meet in person with an extraordinary singer that with his voice has become over the years one of the pillars of the Project, Mr. Lenny Zakatek!!!

Fifteen years after the first meeting of Italian fans of The Project organized under the name of "The Parsons Day " and ten years since the last meeting, it is with great pleasure that we invite you all to the first public gathering of Italian The Alan Parsons Project fans. The event, of course, also open to fans around the world, will be held in Turin, Saturday July 5, 2014, starting at 16.
The meeting, which was born from the passion of the writer and from a dream matured in common with the friend German Impache, leader of the cover band called "Stereotomy", will be held at the charming covered courtyard of "Il Maglio" cocktail bar (http://ilmagliotorino.wix.com/pauer), via Andreis 18/16 , Borgo Dora, Turin, and it will be free entrance.
The event is characterized by a series of interesting activities, among which the presence of the legendary Lenny Zakatek (accompanied by keyboardist Steve Jeffries) is only the icing on the cake. Starting in the afternoon, will take place two live video calls, one with Sally Woolfson, daughter of the late Eric, the other with the wizard of sound in person, Mr. Alan Parsons, and then will come in the evening the TAPP tribute concert played by the "Stereotomy" band. Added to all this there will be an exhibition of a wide selection of the most interesting vinyl rarities from the TAPP world .
