Let’s hang at the Melbourne Guitar Show!

Hey! I’ll be at the Melbourne Guitar Show this weekend hosting the Meet The Players (Saturday) and Up Close And Personal (Sunday) sessions on the Cafe Corner stage.

On Saturday August 3 the guests will be Jeremy Barnes and James Norbert Ivanyi (11:30am), Michael Dolce (1:30pm) and a fingerstyle guitar summit hosted by Drew Roller with Van Larkins, Phisha and Ella Belfanti.

On Sunday August 4 catch Dave Leslie of Baby Animals at midday, and Phil Manning at 1:30pm.

I’ll have my Kiesel Vader 7-string headless guitar with me at the show, so if you see me around and you’d like to check it out, just ask!

This year’s show is going to be massive, with guests including Keith Merrow, Jake Bowen, Sarah McLeod, Adam Miller, and Simon Hosford’s Fair Warning performing Van Halen’s debut album in full. Get the full info here!

The Melbourne Guitar Show is held at Caulfield Racecourse, Station Street, Caulfield, and you can get tickets here.

Me and my trio are playing at the Melbourne Guitar Show on the first day of the two-day event, August 8, and here’s an interview by Paul Cashmere of Noise11 with me, Rob Walker of the Australian Music Association and Phil Cebrano.

Come along to the Melbourne Guitar Show! It’ll feature all sorts of displays, performances, seminars, workshops and even opportunities to buy gear right there on the day (which is exceedingly rare for a show like this in Australia). Performing artists include Jeff Lang, Lloyd Spiegel, Davidson Brothers, James Ryan, Simon Hosford, Nick Charles, King of the North, Racer Axe and many more, one of whom is …me! I’ll be playing a set of instrumental progressive-rock-shred-metal-fusion with my trio, which includes Geoff Mison of Pony Music and Defryme on drums and my former Upperhand bandmate Rohan Drew on bass. We’ll be onstage at midday on Saturday August 9. Come along! Here’s the press release: Read More …
