Lakeshore Music breaks the mold as it kicks off the new year with its presentation of New West Guitar Group in concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25, at Tempe Center for the Arts.
In its only show this season in the TCA Studio, Lakeshore eschews traditional row seating in the front of the house and configures the room to resemble a jazz club, complete with tables! There will be traditional row seating in the back of the house.
It is an innovative approach consistent with New West's innovative style, which produces its signature jazz sound with a combination of acoustic and electric guitars. The group, with its easy-listening rhythms, is regarded by critics as among the premier jazz-guitar ensembles in the world.
