Dave Weiner: Favored Nations Dave Weiner was hand selected at the age of 22 to join Steve Vai’s band and has been touring and recording with the guitar legend ever since; playing roughly 350 shows in 45 countries on 5 continents.

Rob’s well-crafted songs define versatility and take the audience on an emotional journey. Rob’s band is a power trio featuring Ethan Meixsell on bass and Veronica Bellino on drums.

Vernon Reid and Masque: Both a guitarist and a composer Vernon is a true artist, one whose work is forever in progress, from his formative years on the downtown New York jazz/funk/punk scene with the Decoding Society, to his leadership of the pioneering platinum rock band Living Colour, to his collaborations with creative spirits ranging from guitarist Carlos Santana, to African singer Salif Keita to choreographers Bill T. Jones and Donald Byrd.
