Presented by Guitar Player magazine, this episode finds us cruising the ‘copter way up to Rochester, NY, to rock out with MICHAEL STAERTOW, lead guitarist for legendary Foreigner frontman Lou Gramm. Staertow has held the Gramm gig for nearly seven years, and from “Hot Blooded,” “Double Vision,” and “Urgent” to “Feels Like the First Time,” “Head Games,” and “I Wanna Know What Love Is,” the set of tunes Staertow plays lead guitar on each night is packed with an astonishingly high number of hits. It’s a dream gig for Staertow, and, as you’ll find out, it’s one he had to wait a long time to get. BONUS: Staertow also shares songs from his forthcoming solo album, and relates adventures such as meeting Stevie Ray Vaughan, Neal Schon, and other of his heroes. Enjoy.

It turns out that there have been a few other musicians that have come out of this area, including the front man Michael now plays guitar for, so even if you’re a Long Long Way From Home, this is Urgent and we’re not playin’ Head Games, so please help us welcome this Soul Doctor, guitarist for Lou Gramm, Mr Michael Staertow. Enjoy! Listen Here!

The 2017 tour has kicked off with a new & improved band! Last year (2016) we welcomed Drummer Rob Mount and Sax / Rhythm Guitarist Scott Gilman ( Foreigner ). This year we welcome Keyboardist Jeff Jacobs (Billy Joel, Foreigner, Julian Lennon) to the band. Bringing the integrity of the music to an all time high! Not only has the addition of these three key elements help authenticate the sound, their stage presence knocks it out of the park!! You’ll be hard pressed to mistaken us for a “cover band”……
See you all out there this summer!
