NILI BROSH is the band’s other guitarist. Originally from Israel and now living in the USA, 25-year old Nili is turning heads with her incredible guitar playing. Nili played guitar for some time with The Iron Maidens (the world’s only all-female tribute to Iron Maiden) and has also performed with Stu Hamm, Guthrie Govan, The Aristocrats and Andy Timmons.

One of the most dynamic and skilled drummers on the pro scene today, Australian native SAM ALIANO is a triple threat – making a name for himself in the recording, touring and teaching worlds. Sam’s live and recording credits include Jazz-Improv rockers Gongzilla, MR. BIG’s Billy Sheehan, Extreme’s Nuno Bettencourt and legendary ex-Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash.

Portnoy Sheehan MacAlpine Sherinian to play Progressive Nation at Sea 2014
August 21, 2013

Progressive Nation 2014

Tony will be joining Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan and Derek Sherinian for Progressive Nation at Sea 2014!


The already incredible lineup just got even more incredible!! Adrian Belew’s Power Trio, Devin Townsend, Animals As Leaders, The Safety Fire and Haken now added to the lineup for PROGRESSIVE NATION AT SEA 2014!



Progressive Nation is hitting the high seas in 2014! Join us in this inaugural sailing from February 18th – 22nd 2014 on the luxurious Norwegian Pearl heading from Miami to Great Stirrup Cay and Freeport, Bahamas. This music festival at sea gives you an experience that a land festival just can’t match. In addition to 4 days in the beautiful Caribbean and all the amenities of a cruise ship; you will enjoy music from morning ‘til night with over 40 shows on multiple stages, along with activities, Q&A’s, panels and workshops from your favorite artists.

PROGRESSIVE NATION founder Mike Portnoy elaborates:
“In 2008 & 2009, I created a touring package called “Progressive Nation” and with Dream Theater headlining, we did three full tours (two in North America and one in Europe) that showcased a variety of bands that embraced the spirit and musicality of progressive music.

Well after a 5 year hiatus, I have decided to resurrect Progressive Nation and this time we are taking it to the seas!
But rather than a 4 band bill like previous Progressive Nation tours, we have expanded the bill to OVER A DOZEN of today’s greatest progressive bands, musicians and artists! (and there may be one or two more still to be confirmed)

Myself and my former DT bandmate Derek Sherinian have teamed up with Sixthman (who have done incredibly successful cruises with Kid Rock, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the annual Kiss Cruise to name a few) as well as our friends at Inside Out Music and look forward to a very successful inaugural launch of PROGRESSIVE NATION AT SEA Feb 18th thru 22nd 2014

We are so excited to take part in this historic maiden voyage and look forward to sharing this one of a kind event with fans from all around the world!”
