Tony MacAlpine is widely known as a guitar virtuoso who is just as skilled on the keys. Edge of Insanity, one of fourteen solo albums, is still considered in the top ten shred albums of all time. Aside from his solo work, Tony has also been part of several rock supergroups including Planet X with Derek Sherinian and Virgil Donati, PSMS,(Portnoy/Sheehan/MacAlpine/Sherinian) as well as the Grammy nominated CAB with bassist Bunny Brunel and drummer Dennis Chambers, and Ring of Fire with Steve Weingart, Mark Boals, Grammy winner Philip Bynoe, and Virgil Donati. MacAlpine also spent seven years playing keys and duplicating Steve Vai’s formidable guitar leads in Vai’s touring band.

Venezuelan guitarist Felix Martin plays like no one else….literally! Martin is the only guitarist the world over to fuse two guitars into one creating both a style and sound unlike anything heard before. Mixing rock, metal, Latin, and progressive styles with jazz chops firmly plants Martin as the preeminent king of 14 and 16 string guitar.

Texas Flood has become the premier Stevie Ray Vaughan tribute act in the nation. With guitarist Tommy Katona leading the way, they bring the raw high energy of music and stage presence that Stevie Ray himself had. They have had the privilege of traveling all over the country with their tribute act. It is not only a show, but a recreated experience of one of the greatest blues guitarists of all time. This is their loving tribute to the life and music of Stevie Ray Vaughan.

From her early days as a gospel singer, to her legendary status as a Texas diva, Maylee transends genre, mixing gospel-based blues with a soul driven rock, touches of pop, with the very faintest caresses of country from time to time… and audiences respond. Maylee is the soul of Texas and a must see act.

Based out of Dallas-TX, “Jason Elmore & Hoodoo Witch” is a high-energy trio that blends jump blues, hard-hitting rock, vintage soul/r&b, and traces of 60’s country into a unique-but-familiar sound that always maintains the essence of the blues while simultaneously offering a fresh take on the genre. The band is comprised of Jason Elmore on guitar and vocals, Brandon Katona on bass, and Mike Talbot on drums. These cats are uncommonly seamless in their ability to tailor their performance to suit the venue and demographic, without compromising the integrity of their mission, which is to give 110% with every single performance, regardless of whether it’s 2 people or 2,000.

Elmont is a new, four-piece Alternative band from North Dallas. Their self-produced debut single, “Home” was recently released on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, and many other sites. Elmont has an eclectic sound that complements the rhythmic journey of the lyrics. The sound of the band is influenced from their love of Alternative Rock, Red Dirt, Indie and vintage records.

The universe of guitar knows no boundaries for The California Guitar Trio. 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.

Comprised 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, The California Guitar Trio’s (CGT) shows are full of captivating stories and humor that enable concertgoers to feel like they’re 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.

 


The Sanctuary was specifically designed with concerts in mind. Its features include; a state of the art sound system and lighting equipment and a built in stage. Full service sound and lighting technicians along with LCD projection are available to make your next music event truly spectacular.
