Laurence Juber returns to SOHO with his trio: long-time studio collaborator Domenic Genova on upright bass/bass guitar and Christopher Allis on drums/percussion, LJ will perform on both acoustic and electric guitar, with an eclectic repertoire drawn from his own celebrated compositions and arrangements, as well as some choice Christmas tunes.
While most frequently seen as a solo acoustic guitarist, LJ relishes the opportunity to stretch out on electric too. Bassist Domenic Genova was featured on LJ’s award-winning audiophile project ‘Guitar Noir’, and can be regularly heard on TV as the bass player on ‘Family Guy’ and other hit shows. Christopher Allis was the drummer with Michael Nesmith’s First National Band, and has performed with Peter Asher and LJ’s old Wings’ bandmate, Denny Laine, amongst others.
