Join us at the B3 Guitar Virtuoso Gig Seven Arts, Leeds Wednesday 19th March 2014! March 09 2014

This gig is all about experiencing uplifting music that explores the cutting edge of the expressive possibilities of the electric guitar. Prepare to be entertained and amazed by performers Paul Bielatowicz, Dave Bainbridge and Dave Brons as they each perform pieces that stretch the boundaries of the guitar repertoire. The gig will be at 7 Arts in Leeds, an intimate all seated venue that is well known for its arty ambience and its great Jazz gigs.

Paul Bielatowicz is the guitarist for the Carl Palmer band, he is renowned for adapting a range of classical piano and violin pieces for the guitar using his astounding 8 finger tapping technique. Simon Fitzpatrick (also of the Carl Palmer band) will be accompanying Paul on Bass guitar. Simon's jaw dropping bass compositions will show you things that you never thought possible on the instrument. He combines chord textures with cascading melodies and funky bass lines, all performed simutaneously! 

Dave Bainbridge is the mastermind behind progressive celtic band IONA. A world class piano player and guitarist, he combines ambient film-like textures with soaring guitar leads that are reminiscent of fusion guitar legend Alan Holdsworth crossed with the score of Braveheart! 

Dave Brons' music also has a cinematic feel. His music has been described as Star Wars crossed with Van Halen (virtuoso guitarist) and Einaudi (Piano composer). Dave's epic music combines beautiful piano playing, unusual time signatures and uplifting guitar melodies that will spark your imagination and transport you the the movies in your minds eye.

Tickets are very limited, so don't put off booking them - this is a one off show in an intimate venue, and we've a feeling it's going to be something very special. :o)
