Eclectic Guitar: Eric Johnson & Mike Stern
Time 9:00 pm
Guitar heroes Mike Stern and Eric Johnson join forces in this incredible all-star dream band that features Chris Maresh on bass and Anton Fig drums.
One of the most esteemed electric guitarists of his generation, Mike Stern has blown away the competition over a four-decade career that includes stints with BS&T, Miles Davis and The Brecker Brothers, as well as 16 recordings as a leader. An electrifying soloist whose blistering chops combine rock-fusion firepower with sophisticated jazz harmonies and his bluesy string-bending prowess, Stern always burns the house down.
One of the most outstanding rock instrumentalists, Texas axeman and Grammy Award winner Eric Johnson “plays guitar the way Michelangelo painted ceilings: with a colorful vibrancy that’s more real than life” (New Age Music Guide). Rolling Stone included him in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of the 21stcentury. Johnson and Stern have collaborated on a new recording, Eclectic, that is filled with high-octane licks, some jazz excursions and a scorching treatment of the famous Hendrix blues, “Red House.” For music fans this is a match made in heaven.
