“ear X-tacy” Revisited!!! 25th Anniversary Tour
When Ibanez displays their instruments at music industry trade shows they prominently feature the world’s greatest guitar heros: Vai, Satriani, Gilbert, and Andy Timmons.
Timmons sparked his own guitar revolution scoring two top 10 videos on Mtv with his band Danger Danger, selling over a million records, and touring the world opening for Kiss and Alice Cooper. A handful of critically acclaimed solo albums followed soon after as well as a long association as guitarist and music director for Olivia Newton-John. Often referred to as “The King Of Tone,” Timmons scored another global success in 2011with his emotive interpretation of The Beatles ‘Sgt. Pepper’ album entirely arranged for guitar. Never one to sit still, Timmons also recorded four albums with world renowned drummer Simon Philips (Toto, The Who, Jeff Beck) and played them live across much of the world.
Now Andy Timmons Band returns to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the release of their debut album, “ear X-tacy”. ATB has shared much phenomenal music over the years, but 2018 marks an occasion to remember the foundation of the band’s music with a special celebration of the release of their first album “ear X-tacy”.
Travis Larson Band
“The soulful fury of this talented three-piece, the Travis Larson Band, washes the stink of the recording industry’s lame offerings out into the gutters while unleashing it’s unique brand of instrumental rock fusion (think of a musical stew mixing a thick brown Rush gravy with big hearty chunks of Steve Morse and a dash of Jeff Beck).”
Comprised of Travis Larson (guitar), Jennifer Young (bass), and Dale Moon (drums), TLB’s complicated phrasing, impossible timing, and seamless flow cause some to suspect that the band must surely operate from only one, albeit enormous, brain. With six studio albums and three full-length performance DVDs, the award-winning Travis Larson Band is firmly rooted as one of instrumental music’s premiere acts, having worked on record with Steve Lukather (Toto), Victor Wooten (Bela Fleck), Dave LaRue (Joe Satriani, John Petrucci, Dixie Dregs), Vinx (Sting, Herbie Hancock).
Years of ambitious touring and shared live billing with notables such as Ted Nugent, UFO, Steve Morse (Deep Purple, Dixie Dregs), The Aristocrats, has established the band’s reputation for live performances that masterfully deliver full throttle rock-fusion.
Travis Larson Band’s 2011 studio release Soundmind earned accolades as Guitar Player Magazine Editor’s Top Three. Endorsement relationships include Ernie Ball/MusicMan, Electro-Voice, Digitech, Markbass, DV Mark,Gretsch, and Sabian.
Travis Larson Band hits the road in 2018 to celebrate 20 years sharing their incredible sounds with fans across the nation!
