Lakeward Spirits craft distillery is pleased to announce that one of the greatest and most influential guitarists in the world, Preston Reed, will perform LIVE in our Event Center at The Barrel Factory in Buffalo NY, on April 18th!
Preston has been captivating audiences globally for almost three decades with the two-handed integrated percussive style he began developing in the 1980's.
Preston's music combines chord-based grooves, soaring melodic runs and polyrhythmic percussion, fulfilling the orchestral potential of the guitar body. The power and depth of Preston's timeless, imagery-evoking compositions are as unique as his execution. Blues, rock, metal, funk, jazz and classical styles are distilled into a breath-taking visual and sonic experience - a border-hopping musical language that tells stories without words.
As millions of YouTube viewers have discovered, Reed's recordings and live performances continue to define the sound of the pioneering compositional guitar genre he invented over a quarter century ago.
Here's what they're saying about Preston:

“In a class of his own” London Evening Standard
