Fareed Haque & The Funk Brothers - Guitar Voices



The Drake (44 N Pleasant St, Amherst MA)

7pm Doors, 8PM Performance


Fareed Haque is a modern guitar virtuoso. Steeped in classical and jazz traditions, his unique command of the guitar and different musical styles inspire his musical ventures with tradition and fearless innovation. Once voted ‘Best World Guitarist’ by Guitar Player Magazine’s Readers’ poll, he’s played with Paquito D’Rivera, Joe Zawinul, Billy Cobham, and Sting, whose PANGEA label released two Fareed Haque albums. Haque toured with Sting, including notable appearances at The Montreux Jazz Festival and Sunday Night with David Sanborn. His new outfit, The Funk Brothers, are a collective of soulful, crazy, funky, true jazz musicians who are not afraid to groove, rock and get sweaty.

Fareed Haque & The Funk Brothers’ performance is part of an on-going series, Guitar Voices, presented by Laudable Productions.
