What would an event like the Guitar Summit be without live music? And that’s exactly why there is a party on Friday and Saturday evening with live music at the end of the day. While Friday is all about the acoustic guitar, Saturday is loud and electric. Here come our rock highlights of this year, which you can experience in concerts, workshops and masterclasses.
Paul Gilbert has been among the top ten of the world’s most famous guitarists for decades. And for good reasons, as he has already recorded a considerable back catalogue in his life – from Speed Metal with Racer X to screwdriver attacks and cuddly ballads with Mr. Big to his various solo releases, which have been highly praised by critics. We are very excited to welcome Paul to the Guitar Summit 2019!
This rock bass player has earned his place in music history several times: Billy Sheehan has played with Talas, David Lee Roth, Mr. Big, G3, Winery Dogs and Sons Of Apollo and supported guitar colleagues like Steve Vai, Paul Gilbert, Joe Satriani, Richie Kotzen and Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal – much more can hardly be achieved as a musician!
Look forward to Billy Sheehan at the Guitar Summit 2019! Billy will give a public workshop, be on stage at the Electric Party on Saturday evening and also offer an exclusive masterclass.
Guitarist, songwriter, producer, musical director … hardly any musical situation that Carl Carlton has not already held with success. And the list of those he has worked with ranges from Udo Lindenberg, Peter Maffay, Herman Brood, Vitesse, Manfred Mann’s Earthband to Robert Palmer, Keb’ Mo’, Eric Burdon and Mother’s Finest. With his own band The Songdogs, whose core, besides Carl Carlton, includes guitarist Moses Mo and bassist Wyzard from the funk rock pioneers Mother’s Finest, Carl goes on tour again in October. We are happy that he takes a short break from the rehearsals for this tour to give a workshop and a masterclass at the Guitar Summit!
One of the absolute highlights is our Allstar Jam on Saturday evening. Thomas Blug will be playing with top-class special guests (Paul Gilbert, Billy Sheehan, Henrik Freischlader, Stu Hamm, Fredrik Åkesson, Pete Thorn and more). If you miss it, it’s your own fault!
