Guitar Gods descend upon F.M. Kirby Center
Yngwie Malmsteen, Uli Jon Roth (Scorpions), Gary Hoey
and Bumblefoot (Guns N' Roses)
April 21, 2014 (Wilkes-Barre, PA) – Get your tickets, and don't forget your earplugs. It was announced today that Guitar Gods 2014 will descend upon the F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday, June 12 at 7:30 p.m., featuring the incomparable Yngwie Malmsteen, Uli Jon Roth (Scorpions), Gary Hoey and Bumblefoot (Guns N' Roses).
Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 25 at 10:00 a.m. and can be purchased at the Kirby Center Box Office, online at www.kirbycenter.org or by phone at (570) 826-1100.
Malmsteen is one of the most technically accomplished guitarists of all time, rewriting the book on hard rock/heavy metal guitar. In addition to countless awards from music and instrument specific publications, none other than TIME Magazine hailed him as one of the ten greatest electric guitarists.
2013 was a banner year for Malmsteen, as he released his bestselling autobiography “Relentless” which coincided with a wildly successful tour that played to full houses all over the world. The only way he could top that in 2014 was to hand pick an all-star lineup of GUITAR GODS to share the stage with him on a magical full North American tour!!!
“Fans can expect the unexpected,” Malmsteen said regarding his live shows. “I raise the bar with every performance I do, and this tour will be no different.”
Held in the highest regard in his own right, Uli Jon Roth brings the very special 40th Anniversary Scorpions set that has been playing to frenzied audiences in Europe to North America, embracing his storied history with the band and digging deep into their catalog for this tour.
Acclaimed for perfecting his playing in multiple genres (rock, blues and surf) and respected by both fans and peers alike, Gary Hoey performs his radio hits, such as the Billboard Top 5 smash “Hocus Pocus,” along with other favorites.
Meanwhile, Guns N’ Roses guitarist, Bumblefoot, (as seen in the just released DVD “Appetite for Democracy” which documents the bands Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel residency) embarks on his first solo tour, playing songs from his entire critically-praised recorded history.
Ticket Prices: $27.00 and $37.00, plus fees

SANTANA RETURNS TO BETHEL WOODS AS PART OF 45TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION OF THE WOODSTOCK FESTIVAL
Comes Back to the Garden On Sunday, June 15
BETHEL, NY – As part of Bethel Woods' season-long celebration of the 45th Anniversary of the Woodstock festival, music legend, Santana will come back to the garden for the second time since their legendary performance on Saturday, August 16, 1969. The Latin music-influenced, Grammy Award-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inducted rock band returns to Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on Sunday, June at 15 at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets go on-sale NOW: at www.BethelWoodsCenter.org, Ticketmaster or by phone at 1.800.745.3000. Tickets are $61.00, $91.50 and $127.00 for reserved tickets, and $36.00 for general admission lawn. All-in ticket prices show at a glance exactly what you will pay for your ticket, including standard shipping.
During Santana's 2010 performance at Bethel Woods, Carlos Santana said, "This is ground zero for peace and love. This is the place where miracles keep happening."
Delivered with a level of passion and soul equal to the legendary sonic charge of his guitar, the sound of Carlos Santana is one of the world's best-known musical signatures. For more than four decades—from Santana's earliest days as a groundbreaking Afro-Latin-blues-rock fusion outfit in San Francisco—Carlos has been the visionary force behind artistry that transcends musical genres and generational, cultural and geographical boundaries.
Long before the category now known as “world music” was named, Santana's ever-evolving sound was always ahead of its time in its universal appeal, and today registers as ideally in sync with the 21st century’s pan-cultural landscape. And, with a dedication to humanitarian outreach and social activism that parallels his lifelong relationship with music, Carlos Santana is as much an exemplary world citizen as a global music icon.
Santana's star arrived in the era-defining late 1960s San Francisco Bay Area music scene with historic shows at the Fillmore and other storied venues. The group emerged onto the global stage with an epic set at the Woodstock festival in 1969, the same year that its self-titled debut LP Santana came out. Introducing Santana's first Top 10 hit, “Evil Ways,” the disc stayed on Billboard’s album chart for two years and was soon followed by two more classics — and Billboard #1 albums — Abraxas and Santana III.
Ever since, for more than forty years and almost as many albums later, Santana has sold more than 100 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, Santana has won 10 GRAMMY® Awards, including a record-tying nine for a single project, 1999’s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for “Smooth”). In 1998, the group was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, whose website notes, “Guitarist Carlos Santana is one of rock’s true virtuosos and guiding lights.”
Among many other honors, Carlos Santana received Billboard Latin Music Awards’ 2009 Lifetime Achievement honor, and, he was bestowed Billboard’s Century Award in 1996. He has also been cited by Rolling Stone as #15 on the magazine’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”—“Santana's crystalline tone and clean arcing sustain make him the rare instrumentalist who can be identified in just one note.” And, with the 2010 release of Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time¬, Santana joined the Rolling Stones as one of only two music acts in Billboard history to score at least one Top Ten album in each decade from the 1960s on.
Santana’s last album, Shape Shifter (2012) was the first for his new label, Starfaith Records and debuted at #16 on the Billboard Top 200. The 13-song set is an instrumental tour de force long awaited by fans (only one song features vocals, by Santana’s lead vocalists Andy Vargas and Tony Lindsay).
Beyond music, in the lifestyle and entertainment realm, River Of Colors (ROC) has enjoyed tremendous success with the Carlos by Carlos Santana and Unity by Carlos Santana brand names. Founded in 1997, ROC is dedicated to bringing products to market that embody the passion and integrity of Carlos Santana—and that are true to his distinctive style and taste. ROC’s endeavors encompass products including shoes, handbags, headwear and sparkling wine, as well as signature musical instruments including electric guitars and hand percussion instruments. ROC products are distributed at better retail stores internationally. For more information, visit www.santana.com

Chip The Beer Guy has Stone Go To IPA.
Pours light gold with a white-colored head of foam.
The hop aromatics blow everything else out of the water. Intense peach, citrus and melon flavors dominate the aroma in the best possible way.
Hop flavors continue to dominate, but are balanced by just enough malt to keep things reasonably in balance. But make no mistake, this beer is very, very hop-forward!
Dry and bitter, the finish makes you want to drink more!
This beer employed the "hop bursting" technique, which in essence is a hopping method where all or most of the bitterness in the beer comes from late hop additions in the brewhouse, like at the end of boil and in the whirlpool, instead of the more traditional approach where most of the hop bitterness comes from earlier additions at the start of the kettle boil. The result is a beautifully aromatic beer with substantial, but somewhat mellow, bitterness. The hop bursting also enhances the flavor retention of the hops, and combined with the dry hop, creates a very intense and complex hop flavor.
