    Jeff Beck Click here to check out a limited VIP Sound Check Package!Jeff BeckLegendary rock guitarist Jeff Beck has had one of the least flashy yet most influential careers in rock history.Universally acknowledged as one of the most talented and influential guitarists in the world, Beck has played alongside some of the greatest artists of rock, blues and jazz during his 40-plus years in the music industry. Now 69, he arose from the hallowed ground of garage rock idols The Yardbirds the very same fertile soil that birthed fellow gods Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page. A groundbreaking artist whose inimitable combination of primal shredding and cool perfectionism has won him eight Grammy awards and left an indelible mark on everything from hard rock and jazz fusion to rockabilly and techno, Beck has earned wide critical praise and twice been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But its the artistry in his live performances that have made his concerts the stuff of legend.Beck famously replaced Eric Clapton as the Yardbirds lead guitarist in 1965 and later went on to form The Jeff Beck Group, which featured Rod Stewart on vocals and Ron Wood on bass. Their two albums Truth (1968) and Beck-Ola (1969) would become musical touchstones for hard rockers in the years to come. The constantly evolving Becks next move a power trio with bassist Tim Bogert and drummer Carmine Appice, which released Beck, Bogert and Appice (1973) once again shattered peoples preconceptions of what a rock guitarist was supposed to sound like.Music has always shared space with Jeffs love of hot rods. After the success of his groundbreaking 1975 jazz-fusion classic Blow By Blow and Wired, Beck began devoting more time to his fleet of cars, but 1985s Flash kept him in the spotlight as he earned the Best Rock Instrumental Grammy for the song Escape. A second Grammy came with Jeff Becks Guitar Shop with Terry Bozzio and Tony Hymas, and a third for Dirty Mind from the You Had It Coming album in 2001.A new direction came serendipitously after Brian Wilson heard Beck play at his MusiCares Person of the Year tribute in 2005. When Beck stepped up with Surfs Up, a dazzling new musical relationship was formed.A triumphant 2009 brought many highlights including a sold-out world tour; Becks second induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; the release of the platinum-selling Performing This Week Live at Ronnie Scotts, which earned a Grammy nomination for A Day In The Life; and magnificent performances with his band at the 25th Anniversary Concert of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at Madison Square Garden.Becks astonishing 2010 solo album, Emotion & Commotion, complements the innovative tones he coaxes from his Stratocaster with a 64-piece orchestra. The remarkable combination shines on a range of songs, from Puccinis aria Nessun Dorma and Elegy For Dunkirk from the film Atonement to Somewhere Over The Rainbow from The Wizard of Oz and an interpretation of Corpus Christi Carol. What appealed to me was the idea of bringing together these seemingly incongruous styles on different kinds of nonclassical music.The innovation paid off. In 2011 Beck was nominated in five categories for the Grammy Awards before bringing home three: Best Rock Instrumental Performance for Hammerhead and Best Pop Instrumental performance for Nessun Dorma, both from Emotion & Commotion, and Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals for Imagine, his collaboration with Herbie Hancock. His Rock N Roll Party Honoring Les Paul album was nominated for a 2012 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album, and in 2013, after a New York performance at Eric Claptons Crossroads Festival at Madison Square Garden, came the September-October North America tour with Wilson and Becks latest musical protgs.Becks latest line-up sparkles with fresh talent. Bassist Rhonda Smith, who toured with Beck in 2011, plays smooth jazz/funk to electrified funk/rock and has worked with artists from Prince to Chaka Khan and Beyonce. Guitarist Nicolas Meier has carved out a reputation as one of the UKs most original musicians, drawing on a love of Turkish and Eastern music, flamenco, tango and jazz. Jonathan Joseph has played with many of the worlds greats, drumming for acclaimed artists including Al Jarreau, Ricky Martin, the contemporary jazz band Yellow Jackets, bassist Richard Bona and singer Joss Stone, and first played with Beck at Crossroads.http://www.jeffbeckofficial.comhttps://twitter.com/jeffbeckmusichttps://www.facebook.com/jeffbeckDont miss your chance to score this rockin deal!Jeff Beck VIP Sound Check PackagePackage includes:One premium reserved ticket in the first 10 rowsExclusive access to Jeff Becks pre-show sound checkEarly entry into the venueSpecially designed Jeff Beck tote bagCollectible silkscreened tour poster (limited print, numbered)Jeff Beck VIP sound check laminateOn-site VIP hostCost of package is $250.
