RE: California Guitar Trio and Tony Levin w. TG (gig spam)

I know the CGT use a DL4 for some Ebow looping- maybe you can turn them on (and Tony Levin) to the Repeater and discuss the EDP with them too- we need more high profile artists using this stuff.

Just in case you've never heard of CGT or Tony Levin.... Paul Richards of Utah, Bert Lams of Belgium and Hideyo Moriya of Japan met in 1987 while studying guitar with King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp.  They toured with Robert as members of the League of Crafty Guitarists and the Robert Fripp String Quintet and formed the CGT in 1991.  Their shows feature incredible original compositions as well as a dizzying array of covers, from Beethoven and Bach to Queen, Surf Guitar and Spaghetti Westerns. For more on the Trio, visit www.cgtrio.com

Tony Levin who will be playing with the Trio is easily the world's best known Chapman Stick player and probably its most recorded bass player ever.  Best known for his work with Peter Gabriel and King Crimson, Tony has also recorded and/or toured with John Lennon, Paul Simon, Ringo, Pink Floyd, Yes, Sarah Mclachlan, David Bowie, Tracy Chapman, Cher, Natalie Cole, Paula Cole, Al Dimeola, Dire Straits, Stevie Nicks, Liza Minelli, Buddy Rich, and James Taylor (to name a few).  www.tonylevin.com

If any of you make it out, do stop by and say hi. I'll likely be hanging out at the merch table after my sets.

Thanks for reading!
