Guitar group performs in Sutter Creek

By From page B5 | August 01, 2014

Sutter Creek Theatre, 44 Main St. in Sutter Creek, presents the New West Guitar Group with its original music, jazz, covers, acoustic and electric guitar on Saturday, Aug. 2

Praised as “sharp and refined” by the Seattle Times, New West Guitar Group infuses its latest disc “Big City” with its signature blend of laid-back virtuosity and expert arrangements that “sometimes verges on the orchestral” (All Music Guide).

“Big City” is the group’s second release on Summit Records and the music is regularly featured on NPR and jazz/americana radio stations all over the country.

Featuring John Storie, Perry Smith and Jeff Stein, New West Guitar Group has been making its mark as a fresh, cutting-edge guitar ensemble. Performing classic popular covers, jazz standards and exciting originals, NWGG combines the acoustic and electric guitar to create their signature sound.

Based in Los Angeles and New York, the ensemble tours extensively through the United States and abroad giving concerts and masterclasses. Graduates of USC’s Thornton School of Music, the trio’s versatility as players and composers has given the musicians the reputation as pioneers in the realm of guitar ensemble.

Tickets for the performance are $18 in advance at suttercreektheater.com or $20 the day of the show.
