With three of the most prolific rock guitarists in the world (GE Smith of Roger Waters band, Bob Dylan & SNL band, Jim Weider of The Band & Levon Helm Band, and Jon Herington of Steely Dan), Masters of the Telecaster is sure to be a historic night of Blues & Roots Rock & Roll. Playing tunes from Roy Buchanan, Little Richard, Steely Dan, Lee Dorsey, Bo Diddley, Sam Cooke, and more!

Jim Weider, a master of classic telecaster guitar, is renowned for his rock and blues-based signature sound. He is among a select group of musicians with an endorsement from Fender and, for the past three decades, he's earned enormous respect from fellow musicians and music fans throughout the world.

GE SMITH was the music Director and led the Saturday Night Live (SNL) band for 10 years. During this time he also toured with Bob Dylan for four years. He also helped Mike Myers write a song for Aerosmith for when they performed on SNL. GE Smith was sought out by major recording artists like Jagger, who, shortly after Live Aid, called Smith to work with him on his first solo album, She’s the Boss. During this period Smith also did a few one-off recordings and concerts with David Bowie and Peter Wolfe. He just finished a three year run with Roger Water’s WALL LIVE worldwide tour.

JON HERINGTON is a longtime New York city based guitarist, singer/songwriter, producer, and Herington is a bandleader in his own right and has enjoyed a great deal of success with the Jon HeringtonBand. However since 1999 he’s been the guitarist of choice for touring and recording with Steely Dan. Herington has also played with the likes of Donald Fagen, Boz Scaggs, Bette Midler, and others.

 

Masters of the Telecaster will be at City Winery on Dec. 22. Showtime 8 PM. Tickets $28-$40
