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), this 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.

Born and raised in the famed arts colony of Woodstock, NY, Jim received great acclaim during his long tenure (1985-2000) as lead guitarist (replacing Robbie Robertson) for Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame inductees, The Band. During 15 years of international touring with original members Levon Helm, Garth Hudson and Rick Danko, Jim was featured on numerous albums, films, videos and television appearances. Highlights included a 1990 performance with The Band and Ronnie Hawkins at The Berlin Wall concert produced by Roger Waters of Pink Floyd; several cable TV specials (notably «The Bob Dylan Tribute» at Madison Square Garden; «The Road,» and «This Country's Rocking»); a performance and recording at the «Unofficial Blue Jean Bash» for President Clinton's 1993 Inaugural Ball, with special guests Bob Dylan, Steven Stills and Dr. John; a 1994 pay-per-view concert telecast from the Woodstock '94 Festival; and a 1995 appearance on the A&E Biography documentary «The Authorized Video Biography The Band» for cable TV and video, released by ABC Video.

Jim furthered his reputation as a versatile and talented guitarist in performances and recordings with Scotty Moore, Keith Richards, Los Lobos, Graham Parker, Taj Mahal, Mavis Staples, Hot Tuna, Bob Weir/Rat Dog, Johnny Paycheck, James Talley, Kim Wilson, Paul Butterfield, Robbie Dupree, among many others. jimweider.com

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. http://gesmithmusic.wordpress.com/

Jon Herington is a bandleader in his own right and has enjoyed a great deal of success with the Jon Herington Band. 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, including the iconic band Steely Dan.
