“Asher plays with a sense of soul that belies his age.” – Guitar Player Magazine
Get ready for an evening of high energy rock and roll, funk and R&B led by up and coming 16-year-old guitar phenom Asher Belsky. The band’s sound is upbeat, energetic, and bluesy, with a driving youthful force. The show will feature Asher’s soon-to-be released original songs produced by Jorgen Carlsson of Gov’t Mule and the band’s interpretation of classics. With Asher on vocals and guitar, Matthew Jazwinski, winner of Downbeat Magazine’s 2019 Student Award, on bass, and Porter Bliquez, music student at School of the Arts in San Francisco, on drums, you will experience the best young musicians on their way to musical greatness.
