A storm of sound and an eruption of percussion mixed with hypnotic music and unique
visuals! Since it's conception in 2008 musical juggernaut, Rarely Seen Above Ground has
taken his tour de force, one man show of sound, visuals and incendiary rhythm and
samples, to captured audiences around the world. Known to his friends as Jeremy Hickey,
R.S.A.G has gained a reputation not only as one of Europe's most impressive drummers
but as a celebrated producer and a talented showman.
R.S.A.Gs live performance is the perfect vehicle to showcase
the versatility and innovation of this trailblazing performer. Over the last 8 years, Hickey
and visual artist Geppetto have collaborated to create a master stroke of visuals and
sound. The live show immerses the audience in hypnotic visuals mixed with projections of
the R.S.A.G virtual band. All members of which are silhouettes of Hickey. These
projections of his Hickeys clones flank Jeremy as he performs live drums and vocals and
set of samples making for a unique experience that should not be missed.
