Zon - Astral Projector
Release date:1978
Genre: Progressive Rock

Zon was a Progressive Rock band formed in Toronto, Canada in the mid '70s by singer Denton Young (who'd previously played with Act Three), Gary Poplawski on guitar, bassist Rod Chappell and Patrick McGuire on drums. Before long though, Louis Mucilli replaced Poplawski on guitars, Jim Sampson became the new bass player and Kim Hunt (ex of Island and Bond) was the new drummer. They added Howard Helm on keyboards, who recommended Brian Miller for the vacant guitarist position when Mucilli left.
In 1978  released them debut album "Astral Projector" on blue vinyl and became an FM radio staple in the late '70's. The album garnered the band a 'Best New Group' Juno nomination.
The band would find themselves opening up gigs for the likes of The Tubes at Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens, and Styx at CNE Stadium getting opening slot encores on both occasions!
