The Crimson ProjeKCt is a King Crimson offshoot featuring 3 current members of that historic band. Adrian Belew and Tony Levin joined King Crimson in 1981, giving birth to the 4th incarnation of the band (alongside Robert Fripp and Bill Bruford). Pat Mastelotto joined in 1994, initiating the double-trio phase. They last played together as King Crimson in 2008.

Belew, Levin and Mastelotto still have a large influence on popular culture due in part to their critically acclaimed work with some of the world’s most influential artists, such as Frank Zappa, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, David Sylvian, Talking Heads, Paul Simon, John Lennon, and Nine Inch Nails.

In 2009 Tony and Pat formed the trio Stick Men which also features Markus Reuter on touch guitar. (Markus is an accomplished composer who learned the Crimson repertoire first-hand from Robert Fripp.) Stick Men have released 4 studio albums to date and tour the world regularly.

In 2006, Adrian Belew formed what was to become a long-term live project known as The Adrian Belew Power Trio. The lineup features Julie Slick on bass and drummer Tobias Ralph. The trio routinely tours the world, and has released several albums together including the acclaimed “E”.

Adrian Belew: “What happens is this: Stick Men play a set of their music (which includes a Krimson track or two), then the Power Trio plays a set of my music (which also includes a Krimson track), then Tony and Pat and I play a Krimson song (as yet another trio), and then comes the big finale: both trios play more than an hours-worth of Krimson music as a double trio!”

“It's a helluva show! Nearly 3 hours long! For me and Tony and Pat it's a way to celebrate the King Crimson music we've been a part of since King Crimson is currently taking a break.”

In the summer of 2012 this sextet supported Dream Theater on a US tour under the name The Crimson ProjeKCt and have retained this moniker ever since. The Crimson ProjeKCt has toured the United States twice, and performed in both Russia and Japan.

“Tony and myself discussed the not-easily-doable name of Stick Men & The Adrian Belew Power Trio That Do A Set Of King Crimson Music. Tony’s suggestion was ProjeKct Krimson. Mine was The Crimson ProjeKCt.” (Robert Fripp’s diary, Saturday, 14th April 2012)
