APRIL 25, 2013 - Bernie Williams Plays National Anthem for NBA Playoff Game 2 with Reverend Jetstream
Latin Grammy nominee and legendary Yankee outfielder opened the NBA Playoff Game 2 (Knicks vs Celtics) with a solo guitar rendition of The Star Spangled Banner. Williams went with his trusty Reverend Jetstream HB for the event, opting for a clean/bluesy neck pickup tone for his tastefully understated rendition of the patriotic classic.
A classically trained guitarist, Williams plays and composes music with influences that include jazz, classical, pop, Brazilian, and Latin sounds. He's released two records to date, 2003's The Journey Within and 2009's Moving Forward, and is currently working on a third release.
APRIL 25, 2013 - Rick Vito Thrills Crowd at Dallas International Guitar Festival
A veritable master of slide guitar, Rick Vito brought his particular brand of swingy-slidey blues to the Dallas International Guitar Festival on Saturday evening. Rick's stage presence and command of the instrument charged up the mixed crowd of dancing revelers and wowed guitar players. The raucous blues set ranged from an old-school original Carry It Home to Rosie, to the ethereal Peter Green chestnut Albatross.
He played most of the set with a pair of his Reverend Rick Vito Signature guitars. Vito also broke out an old Reverend Rocco that he had modified with an aluminum fretless fretboard! With this unique guitar he proceeded to tear it up on an original East-meets-West composition, complete with micro-tonal lead work that added a pleasantly unexpected dimension to the set, and had jaded guitar players smiling wide.
