Sammons Jazz presents an exciting collaboration of strings and percussion on Wednesday, November 6, when the Drew Phelps Electric Guitar Project and Rhett Butler take the stage in Solo Virtuosos: Guitar, Bass & Blues at the Sammons Center for the Arts. Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP is the Corporate Night Sponsor.
The opening set by the Drew Phelps Electric Guitar Project will showcase Drew’s widely respected talent on the upright bass. Drew, who has recorded with the Dixie Chicks, Little Jack Melody, Dave Zoller and others, will be joined by special guests Paul Metzger and Don Bell on electric guitar and Steve Barnes on drums. Be prepared for an amazing collaboration!
The second set features Rhett Butler, whose trademark hammer-on style allows him to play two guitars at once.
