Greg Howe has collaborated with artists such as Dennis Chambers, Victor Wooten, Richie Kotzen, Jason Becker, Billy Sheehan, Stu Hamm, Simon Phillips, Marco Minneman, and Eddie Jobson.  He's also made a name for himself as a stellar sideman and session musician with artists like Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, Rihanna, Enrique Iglesias, and many more.  His TV appearances include The Grammy's, American Music Awards, The Tonight Show, The Today Show, The Billboard Awards, Teen Choice Awards,  just to name a few.

Howe has also developed a solid reputation as a technical innovator, particularly for his strong utilization of tapping, unusual time signatures and his "hammer-on from nowhere" legato method. His self-titled debut album "Greg Howe" is ranked tenth best shred album of all time by Guitar World Magazine.

In 2006, Shrapnel Records celebrated Greg's 20 year career with “Collection – The Shrapnel Years” – an album containing some of his best musical moments — comprised of  shred fest ditties such as "Bad Racket" and "Joker's Wild," as well as the popular "Jump Start" and the funky "Howe 'Bout It." These tracks also contain standout performances by some of the greatest musicians in progressive music, including drummers Dennis Chambers and Atma Anur, Keyboardist Vitalij Kuprij, as well as bassists Billy Sheehan and Victor Wooten along with other world class players.

In 2012 Greg Howe decide to take a break from the instrumental world and announced that he would be putting together a rock band named Maragold, which had much international success.

Greg Howe's new album, "Wheelhouse", which is due out later this year, marks a highly anticipated return to his solo instrumental work. It features Greg Howe at his best along with an appearance from guitar legend, Richie Kotzen (Winery Dogs, Mr. Big).  Described by Howe as his most personal work to date, the album is destined to again set the bar for guitarists everywhere.

Musical trends may come and go, but you always know what's in store with a new Greg Howe release, and this veteran shredder certainly won't disappoint with this breathtaking showcase as one of the best rock/fusion players in the world.

NEW ALBUM DESCRIPTION:  Greg Howe "Wheelhouse" is paying homage to what Greg Howe is best known for. The album also has a somewhat throwback vibe to it in which there are musical ideas that you'll most commonly find on some of Greg Howe's previous albums such as "Introspection" and "Tilt". The sound is very upbeat, with a special guest appearance by Richie Kotzen from the Winery Dogs.

SHOW/TOUR DESCRIPTION: You can expect Greg Howe doing Greg Howe and if you like the way he plays you'll get a live version of that. Greg Howe will be performing new songs off of the most current album "Wheelhouse", but will also perform his most popular and fan favorite songs such as "Jump Start", "Kick it all over", "Sunny", and many more.

Greg Howe endorses: DV Mark Amps, Kiesel Guitars, D'Addario Strings, Seymour Duncan Pickups, and Carl Martin Pedals.

STICK MEN - Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto, the powerhouse bass and drums of the group King Crimson for a few decades, bring that tradition to all their playing. Levin plays the Chapman Stick, from which the band takes it’s name. Having bass and guitar strings, the Chapman Stick functions at times like two instruments. Markus Reuter plays his self-designed touch style guitar – again covering much more ground than a guitar or a bass. And Mastelotto’s drumming encompasses not just the acoustic kit, but a unique electronic setup too, allowing him to add loops, samples, percussion, and more. New studio album Prog Noir was released in October 2016, and the band is touring the USA and Canada in August/September 2017, and in 2018 will perform at the Cruise To The Edge 2018 and in Central America and The Caribbean (with special guest David Cross, ex-King Crimson), and in Europe in March 2016.

TONY LEVIN - Born in Boston, Tony Levin started out in classical music, playing bass in the Rochester Philharmonic. Then moving into jazz and rock, he has had a notable career, recording and touring with John Lennon, Pink Floyd, Yes, Alice Cooper, Gary Burton, Buddy Rich and many more. In addition to touring with Stick Men, he is currently a member of King Crimson and Peter Gabriel Band, and jazz bands Levin Brothers and L’Image. His popular website, tonylevin.com, featured one of the web’s first blogs, and has over 4 million visits.

PAT MASTELOTTO - Very rarely does a drummer go on to forge the most successful career on the demise of their former hit band. Phil Collins and Dave Grohl have managed it, so too has Pat Mastelotto, a self taught drummer from Northern California, who has also been involved with pushing the envelope of electronic drumming. Pat has spent a lifetime jumping genres from pop, to prog, to electronica to world music with – among others – Mr. Mister, XTC, David Sylvian, The Rembrandts, Kimmo Pohjonen, and for the last 20 years with King Crimson.

MARKUS REUTER - Markus is a composer, guitarist, and producer. Initially trained as a pianist, he subsequently studied Robert Fripp’s Guitar Craft and learned to play the Chapman Stick, later moving onto the U8 Touch Guitar. Reuter has released several solo recordings and worked extensively with other musicians.

East Coast Unbound Tour 2017
Friday October 6

One show 
Two 75 minute sets at 8PM


Ticket prices of $18 adv / $20 door

Take the elegance of jazz guitar as inspired by Wes Montgomery, Jim Hall, and Joe Pass. Blend it with the greatest melodies of heavy metal (Ozzy Osbourne, Scorpions and Aerosmith, et al). What do you get? 
 
AST (Alex Skolnick Trio). 
 
Known for their sophisticated re-harmonizations of heavy classics as well as quirky originals, AST perform with a depth, humor, and character that enthralls fans across the musical spectrum. An AST concert will quickly achieve legitimacy in the eyes and ears of skeptical jazz fans, while at the same time introduce metalheads to the pleasures of music without moshpits. A 2015 cover story said of its leader, well known for his work with thrash metal group Testament, "Though he’s pretty much a household name in heavy metal, Alex Skolnick is not your average, everyday shredding guitarist. In reality, he defies categorization by musical genre." (Making Music Magazine 2015).  
 
"A wonderful display of rock infused jazz" (Dublin Concerts) 
“Alex Skolnick is that rare thing, a passionate, innovative and adventurous guitarist.” (GRTR UK)  
"Originals & metal covers converted into jazz w highly satisfying results.  Sumptuous, technically proficient music" (Egigs.co.UK)
