Mr. Sommer travels solo on this show and brings 7-9 guitars onstage along with a collection of small, beat-up amps held together with clothes pins, duct tape and zip ties. The stage is usually topped off with a collection of vintage Lava Lamps, acquired, as Eric Sommer explains it, "...through raucous negotiations in pawnshops, thrift stores and flea markets." With open tunings, slide guitar, lap-slap tone guitar and a remarkably aggressive fingering style approach, watching Eric Sommer will make you jump out of your seat and holler for joy.

It's a remarkable combination. There are very few players who have maintained this authentic American style of guitar and Eric Sommer is one of the very best. Amen.
