Santana & Journey legend Gregg Rolie to play acoustic solo show at NYC’s Iridium

February 20th, 2012 by Craig Hartranft

2/20/2012 – Gregg Rolie, co-founder of two multi-platinum super groups, Santana and Journey, will make two unique solo appearances on March 2 & 3, 2012 at the famed Iridium in NYC. The legendary Iridium has a dual history as both a jazz institution and the home of Les Paul, who performed at the venue regularly from 1996-2009. Les Paul Mondays were always an event with such iconic guitarists as Jeff Beck, Steve Miller, Todd Rundgren and Ted Nugent sitting in with the Les Paul Trio. Gregg Rolie’s two-day performances at the Iridium come on the heals of his new solo EP, “Five Days”. Gregg, along with his special guest, blues guitarist Alan Haynes, will be playing selections from the new EP along with many old favorites. He’ll share stories from his 40-plus year career and answer questions from the audience during the show. After his performance, there will be a meet and greet with the audience and Gregg will be on hand for pictures and autographs. (more…)

JPT Scare Band perform first live concert in over 35 years in hometown Kansas City

September 15th, 2011 by Craig Hartranft

35 years melted away as if time had never existed.  Terry Swope pick up the axe, Paul Grigsby plugged in the bass, Jeff Littrell took the drum stool and the mythical beast that is JPT Scare Band breathed anew.  35 years ago, JPT stunned unsuspecting minds with their terrorizing jamming and distinctly heavy blues, tearing a swath across the countries mid-section with one performance after another.  Legendary tales leaked from the underground of a guitarist worthy of sharing a stage with Hendrix, a bass player who could stand in for Led Zeppelin, a drummer who could replace Charlie Watts.  But for the last 35 years, these stories and the legends, the myths, of JPT Scare Band live performance were all that existed.

But no more. (more…)
