Upcoming Events: Jacques Roy Question and Answer House of Java, Tomorrow, September 2, 2006, 3PM Open to the Public Monte Montgomary LIVE In Alexandria Spirits, September 8th, 8PM Tickets are on sale now. $15 Monte Montgomery has taken the acoustic guitar beyond anyone’s expectations. With his amazing fretwork, unique combination finger and pick style playing through trailblazing chordal thoroughfares often baffling even the most accomplished players. While Monte remains a huge enigma in the guitar universe, his legendary reputation has spread like wildfire since he appeared on Austin City Limits. In 2004 Monte was named on Guitar Player Magazine's list of "Top 50 Greatest Guitarists Of All Time" and in 2005 Monte appeared on the Covers of “Frets” and “Acoustic Guitar” magazines. Countless articles have been written about Monte. He’s been described as “The Evel Knivel of Guitar”, “Six Strings Attached To Dynamite”, “The Answer To The Fermi Paradox” and “The Acoustic Shred Master” just to name a few. In spite of all the “six-string notoriety”, and just in case you didn’t “know-tice”, Monte isn't just a “guitar hero”, “shred master” or “guitar god” as he’s most often described. No, actually Monte Montgomery is much more than just a world-class guitar virtuoso with more new tricks up his fret board than your average “guitar slinger”. What sets Monte apart from all others is that he’s one of the most accomplished songwriters of our time, a remarkable singer and an extraordinary music arranger. Many of Monte’s fans attend his concerts simply to hear his compelling vocals as he delivers his finely penned songs powerfully and passionately. To some, his incredible guitar pyrotechnics are simply an addition of tasty icing topping off a delicious cake. Monte’s latest release titled “MONTE MONTGOMERY AT WORKPLAY” (Harmonic Records - 2005), available in CD and DVD versions is a double barrel treat offering fans a new dimension of Monte’s incredible power packed live performance recorded Live at WorkPlay Theater in Birmingham, Alabama.
