Rick Whitehead Trio + Lee Travers – Saturday, 10/23
October 23 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Rick Whitehead Trio consists of Rick Whitehead, John Previti, and Steve Larrance. Each of these three musicians has had an amazing career. Rick Whitehead was the featured guitar soloist for the USAF band’s Airmen of Note for 22 years. Bassist John Previti is best known for his 18 year stint with the amazing guitar master, Danny Gatton, and has performed with numerous artists of renown including Les Paul, Charlie Byrd, and Paul Simon. Steve Larrance recorded with Lawrence and the Arabians and the Ike and Tina Turner band.
They will be likely be joined by Lee, so that means you can expect some rock n roll influence! https://www.rickwhiteheadguitar.com
Rest in Peace, Barry Hart, pictured below – middle. Drummer Barry Hart was a WAMA Award winning technical master who performed with many famous artists, and was the permanent drummer for Danny Gatton’s jazz quintet, Funhouse. He passed away in October, 2021. He was an amazing drummer and an even better man. He will be sorely missed.
