Details of event


Voted “Best Keyboardist of All Time” by Music Radar Magazine, Jordan Rudess is best known as the keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist and technologist extraordinaire for platinum-selling Grammy- nominated prog rock band, Dream Theater. A classical prodigy who began his studies at the Juilliard School of Music at the age of 10, Jordan’s music is a unique blend of classical and rock influence.


Simon Phillips is by far one of the world’s most renowned and respected drummers, whose style not only

reflects his technical gift but also his distinct musical sensibility. Whether it is Rock, Fusion, Jazz or World, Simon applies the same precision and intensity to his drumming, which is never lacking in emotion and feel.

Simon’s professional musical career began at the early age of twelve, performing and recording with his father’s, Sid Phillips, Dixieland band until he turned sixteen when he joined the London production of the musical “Jesus Christ Superstar”. Simon soon became one of London’s most celebrated session drummers. In his early twenties he was well on his way to having a musical career nothing short of brilliance. To date he has toured and recorded with many bands and artists, including: Mick Jagger, The Who, Jeff Beck, Jack Bruce, Peter Gabriel, Joe Satriani, Tears for Fears, Judas Priest, Roxy Music, Michael Schenker, Nik Kershaw, Al DiMeola, 801, Pete Townshend, Robert Palmer, Stanley Clarke, The Pretenders, Whitesnake and Dave Gilmore… to name but a few.


Mark Lettieri is a guitarist, composer, and producer based in Fort Worth, TX. Proficient in a multitude of styles, he records and performs in virtually every genre of popular music with both independent and major-label artists. He also composes and produces original instrumental music under his own name.

Born in the San Francisco Bay Area, Lettieri came to Texas for college, and playing in the vibrant Dallas gospel and R&B scene led him to join jazz/world group Snarky Puppy in 2008. He contributes to the band not only as a guitarist, but as an arranger and composer as well. The group has earned three GRAMMY Awards: Best R&B Performance for “Something” feat. Lalah Hathaway in 2014, and twice for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album (Sylva in 2016, and Culcha Vulcha in 2017). Snarky Puppy tours constantly, having performed on every continent except Antarctica.


PLINI is an independent solo artist from Sydney, Australia. He composes, plays guitar, records, produces and manages his uniquebrand of instrumental progressive rock all from a bedroom studio. STEVE VAI described his critically-acclaimed debut album “HANDMADE CITIES” as “one of the finest, forward thinking, melodic, rhythmically and harmonically deep, evolution of rock/metal instrumental guitar records I have ever heard.” PLINI was named #8 in Ultimate-Guitar’s top 12 guitarists of 2015 and listed amongst MusicRadar’s “10 best prog guitarists in the world right now” in 2016.

In addition to his own catalogue (an album, a trilogy of EPs and numerous singles), PLINI has recorded guest solos for artists from all over the world, including SKYHARBOR (India), INTERVALS (Canada), NOVELISTS (France), DAVID MAXIM MICIC (Serbia), MODERN DAY BABYLON (Czech Republic) and more. He has also released two singles for charity, “KO KI” (2014) and “EVERY PIECE MATTERS” (2016), raising over $10,000 for providing shelter and sustainable housing for communities in poverty in Cambodia.


Double-Bass phenomenon, multi-instrumentalist and YouTube sensation Adam Ben Ezra; a man seemingly on a mission to bring his instrument from its status as a background note to the dominant front-presence it deserves. For the past few years Adam has been pushing his craft in new, exciting directions and carving out a unique spot for himself in today’s international musical landscape, with both his songwriting and musicianship earning him great success along the way.

The term “multi-instrumentalist” is often overused but in this case it couldn’t be more fitting; Adam began playing the violin at age five and picked up the guitar at age nine. Over the years he has added the Piano, Clarinet, Oud, Flute and Cajon to his arsenal, largely teaching himself each time. However, it was an introduction to the Double- Bass at age 16 that truly changed his life, when he instantly fell in love with the instrument’s rich sound.


David Micic (David Maxim Micic), born on May 5th, 1990 in Dubrovnik, Croatia. He is a multiinstrumentalist (mainly guitar and keyboard player), composer and a producer who independently and successfully manages his pretty unique music brand of progressive rock, all from the bedroom studio in Belgrade, Serbia. He’s also a lead guitarist, composer and a producer behind the band called Destiny Potato.

His talent and dedication for music was discovered by Kornelije Kovac, one of Serbia’s (ex-Yugoslavia) biggest names in music, which lead David to the number of jobs, collaborations and media appearances. One of the more notable collaborations was on Laza Ristovski – “Drvo Zivota” (“The Tree of Life”).
