Rotosound Presents Billy Sheehan ‘At: Guitar Center’ Workshops Across USA In Association With Hartke

Rotosound Presents Billy Sheehan 'At: Guitar Center' Workshops Across USA In Association With Hartke -

Rotosound are proudly supporting the Billy Sheehan 'At: Guitar Center' workshop tour, in association with Hartke, at eight locations throughout the USA in May 2013.

Voted 'Best Rock Bass Player' in Guitar Players Magazine's readers polls five times, Billy Sheehan is a rocker at heart and as busy as ever. He has two new albums about to hit the stores, 'Live In Tokyo' with Mike Portnoy, Tony MacAlpine and Derek Sherinian and his sixth album with Niacin -'Krush'. Plus he has just started on a new project, 'Winnery Dogs' with Mike Portnoy and his old Mr.Big pal Richie Kotzen. All of which gives him plenty of scope to demonstrate his considerable bass playing techniques.

The 'At: Guitar Center' workshops will feature a live performance from Billy, a question and answer session plus a meet and greet with great opportunities to get his autograph. This is an amazing chance to see up close one of the world's most technically accomplished bass players demonstrate the skills that have made him the master of hard rock low end. The sessions are free to the public, however capacity is limited at each venue and attendees should arrive early to be sure of a space. Billy is appearing at Guitar Center, at the given dates and times, in the following locations:-

Monday May 13th 2013 6.00pm West LA
Tuesday May 14th 2013 6.00pm San Jose
Thursday May 16th 2013 6.00pm Reno
Friday May 17th 2013 6.00pm Scottsdale

Monday May 20th 2013 6.00pm Englewood
Wednesday May 22nd 2013 6.00pm Manhattan
Thursday May 23rd 2013 6.00pm Danbury

Billy has been a Rotosound endorsee for over 25 years and his signature stainless steel roundwound strings have helped shaped his unique sound.

All attendees can enter to win the workshop tour's grand prize, a Billy Sheehan Hartke rig* featuring an LH1000 Bass Amplifier and AK410/AK115 Bass Cabinets, or Billy Sheehan-signed Rotosound Swing Bass 66 (BS66) Bass Strings given away at each location.
