Song: Late To The Party
Artist: Andrew Synowiec

We went to Lost Chord again last night - it's a small venue in Solvang, CA that features local artists.

Andrew Synowiec is very talented - sometimes he sounded like Pat Metheny, other times he sounded like Al Di Meola or Frank Zappa.

At one point in the show, he stepped up to the mic and said that he had to admit to something - he had an addiction problem.

It turns out he's addicted to buying guitars. He played five or six different guitars during the show, including an awesome 1953 Epiphone. He sounded like Johnny A when playing that beast.


A very entertaining show - we would go to see him and his band again.

He closed the show with this piece: "Lead Foot" - he sounded like Eric Johnson on this one.
