Acoustic or Electric, Gibson or Fender, Jimi Hendrix or Django Reinhardt, no matter what kind of guitar style you enjoy Infinity Hall Live’s “Guitar Heroes” episode showcases the 6-string magic of some of today’s most skilled players. Experience the intense musicianship of these guitarists as they each take a different approach to six strings.
Robert Cray: This five-time Grammy Award-winner’s guitar presence is legendary. Robert Cray is well-known as one of the few blues artists to cross over into top-40 stardom and his stellar career has included high profile collaborations with icons like B.B. King and Eric Clapton. In 2011, his induction into the Blues Hall of Fame solidified his status as one of the greatest guitarists of his generation.
Tommy Emmanuel: A perfect blend of guitar mastery and showmanship, Australian artist Tommy Emmanuel has proven to be an artist worth seeing live. He plays with all ten of his fingers, the way a pianist would. Rather than using a whole band for melody, rhythm, bass and drum parts, Tommy does it all himself, on one guitar. Charming, energetic and down to earth, Emmanuel captures audiences with his personality and mesmerizes them with his guitar playing.
Tim Reynolds: Tim Reynolds, best known for his collaborations with the Dave Matthews Band, is widely regarded as underrated master, highly skilled at guitar, bass, piano, sitar, mandolin, violin and various instruments of ethnic percussion. Reynolds is accomplished at nearly 30 musical instruments. When his musical mastery is combined with his flawless improvisation and complex riffs, the result is an unforgettable rock performance.
Keb’ Mo’: Contemporary blues musician and three-time Grammy winner Keb’ Mo’ takes the stage alongside his band of top musicians. With Les Falconer III on drums, Vail Johnson on bass, Michael Hicks on keyboards, Kevin So on keyboards and guitar and Jeff Paris on guitar, mandolin and harmonica, the band’s full sound and Mo’s incomparable blues style engulf the elated audience.
Robben Ford: Five time Grammy nominee Robben Ford brings his signature style of blues and stunning guitar licks to Infinity Hall. With his extensive catalogue of blues and rock, it’s easy for audiences to see why this master of the six string became a go to musician for the likes of Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell, George Harrison and other legends.
Tedeschi Trucks Band: The masterful guitar playing of Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi matched with their careful selection of musicians including two drummers, a horn section, backing vocals, keys and bass, combined with Tedeschi’s vocal prowess can only be described as a musical cocktail that is otherworldly.
