    The California Guitar Trio

    The universe of guitar knows no boundaries for the California Guitar Trio (CGT). Since 1991, the group has enthralled listeners with a singular sound that fearlessly crisscrosses genres. The trio’s questing spirit drives it to explore the intersections between rock, jazz, classical, and world music. It even throws in the occasional surf or spaghetti Western tune for good measure.

    Composed of Bert Lams, Hideyo Moriya, and Paul Richards, the group has established a unique, personal connection with audiences. In addition to dazzling musicianship and interplay, CGT shows are full of captivating stories and humor that enable concertgoers to feel like they are part of the music, not just spectators. In fact, the group’s goal is to transcend their instruments, so people focus on the music first, and its considerable technical prowess a distant second.

    BoDeans: Stripped Down

    Long known as one of the best live acts in the business, BoDeans continues to tour year-round and deliver amazing, high-energy performances. “I realized some time ago that the key to the BoDeans identity is the fans’ connection to our music—nowhere is that more evident or rewarding as when we come together live. We love to connect with the fans who have supported us for so long and who have brought us so much inspiration,” said Kurt Neumann, the band’s founder and frontman. “We will continue to play as long as they continue to come out and sing along.” Chart-topping songs such as “Fadeaway,” “Only Love,” and “Dreams” won them Rolling Stone’s Readers Poll for Best New American Band in 1987, and they were part of a small contingent of bands that inspired a new radio format known as adult album alternative (also known as triple A). Early and Late Show!
