Supertramp lead Guitarist Carl Verheyen returns — accompanied by the amazing band he had last year — for a night of acoustic blues at the Treehouse Café at 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21.
Tickets, $35 for reserved table seating, are on sale now via www.treehousebainbridge.com; admission is 21-and-older only.
Recognized as “One of the World’s Top 10 Guitarists” by Guitar Magazine and “One of the Top 100 Guitarists of All Time” by Classic Rock magazine, Verheyen brings a stunning mix of blues, rock, jazz and even country to the Treehouse, accompanied by world-class musicians John Mader on drums and Dave Marotta on bass.
“We love playing more intimate venues and we look forward to bringing our music and energy to both longstanding and new fans,” Verheyen said.
Hardly a day goes by during which anyone with access to music, movies, or television doesn’t hear Verheyen’s work.
As a first-call studio guitarist, Verheyen is the man behind the music of some of the most popular TV shows (“Seinfeld,” “Frazier,” “Cheers,” “Happy Days,” “LA Law,” “Married with Children,” among others) and movies (“Star Trek,” “The Usual Suspects,” “Ratatouille,” “The Negotiator,” hundreds more) of all time.
In addition to his duties as Supertramp’s guitarist, he has performed and recorded with a Who’s Who of music giants, ranging from the great B.B. King, to Joe Bonamassa, Cher, Brad Paisley, Christina Aguilera, The Bee Gees, and hundreds of others.
Bassist Marotta has also performed with Phil Collins, Neil Diamond, Bruce Hornsby, Gino Vanelli, Manhattan Transfer, Kenny Loggins, and countless others, and ace drummer Mader has performed or recorded with Booker T. Jones, Steve Miller, Pat Benatar, Patti Austin, Albert King, Randy Newman, and Bonnie Raitt.
