Gary Sohmers’ New Book

First of The Beasties Novel Series



While Earth is on the brink of planetary collapse, a rock band finally has a hit record, and performs a free concert in Central Park. But when one of the stagehands (Grā) is affected by alien intervention, infusing within him a schizophrenic identity with special powers, and the concert is interrupted by a corrupt politician, he and the band must rally humanity and their out-of-control Beasties to save the planet.

This is the story of Grā

“Beasties: A Sci-Fi Rock Opera” book series is based on
the musical stage show of the same name. 

Many novels,
Many perspectives,
One otherworldly story.

“Impressive display of creative gymnastics, Gary Sohmers takes you on a magical trip through his mind to his musical meaning of life.” – Bob Eckstein, NY Times bestselling author

Beasties: A Sci-Fi Rock Opera

Act One: Impulseby Gary Sohmers


“Beasties: A Sci-Fi Rock Opera Act One – Impulse” has been released across all digital services soon to be followed by CD and Vinyl releases in early 2023.   Act Two is being mixed and will be released in April 2023.


“I am so inspired by what Gary and his team have achieved with Beasties — an original new musical with something important to say — a timely message delivered through rocking entertainment.”

– Vivek Tiwary, Tony winning Producer, Eisner winning Author

“Beasties” is a busy beast of an album, packed
with fist-pumping hard rock …  and hooky anthems.”

– Jim Sullivan WBUR“It engages the listeners’ imagination in a way
music seldom does anymore…”

– Eric Jarvis for The Hollywood Digest

“It’s a monumentally ambitious work, especially
considering the tenor of the times, but not aggressively so.
The earnestness of its intentions redeems any meaningful
self-indulgence or ego tripping during the course of
these songs and listeners can only assume the same
song-first artistic sensibility governs the opera in full.”

– Music Existence

Beasties: A Sci-Fi Rock Opera 

“Beasties: A Sci-Fi Rock Opera” is a story about a rock band that finally has a hit record after years of touring, performing a free concert in Central Park that attracts a huge crowd. But, without telling the band, the promoter sold a sponsorship to a corrupt politician, Dick T.Raitor, who interrupts the concert in an attempt to hijack the audience’s attention. The hero, Grā (pronounced: Gray), currently a stagehand and a retired singer, is affected by an alien intervention from an otherworldly impulse—which infuses within him a schizophrenic identity with special powers—to make humanity aware of their inner Beasties. Two intertwined rock and roll love stories, one between humans and one between the universe and the sci-fi rock known as earth, to save the planet from climate destruction by societal corruption.

The cast concept recording features singers Dave Bickler (Oscar nominated, Grammy winning vocalist of “Eye of The Tiger”) as Grā (an alien impulse from the cosmic universe); British rock star Chris Farlowe (1966 hit “Out of Time” with Mick & Keith, also sings with Jimmy Page, Van Morrison, among others) as the villain Dick T.Raitor; rock n soul singer Barrence Whitfield (of The Savages) as the “star” of the concert, Voice; and new-comer Liz Proteau as the female lead Terra. Orchestrated, arranged and co-written by Bill Holloman (Nile Rodgers, Bruce Springsteen, others). Record mixed by Paul David Hager (Miley Cyrus, Katie Perry, Devo).

Following along the path paved by other cult classics, this cast concept album is just the beginning of a pop culture work of art aimed at saving the planet and humanity from climate destruction and societal corporate corruption.  Gary Sohmers crafted a story around these songs in early 2017, having written several of the songs over the course of his life, he wrote 9 new ones, along with 3 novels from the perspectives of 3 of the main characters. Having a 50+ year career in pop culture and showbiz, Sohmers releases his first record since 1980.

Sohmers is well known for his 13 seasons appearing as an appraiser of pop culture on the PBS TV show “Antiques Roadshow” with over 80 appraisal appearances.  He is also well known as the producer of the NorthEast ComicCons & Collectibles Extravaganzas, having produced over 300 collectors shows.

Beasties: A Sci-Fi Rock Opera Act One – Impulse tells the first half of the story about our Sci-Fi rock which is expected to become a touring show, landing on Broadway.
