Visionary guitarists William Eaton, Anthony Mazzella, and Fitzhugh Jenkins join forces as the 'Electric Harp Guitar Group' (Ehgg) to perform on their unique electric harp guitars, acoustic guitars, and synthesizer guitars on Thursday, July 24, 7 p.m.. in a special live concert at Relics Restaurant & Roadhouse in Sedona.

A local phenomenon with international experience 'Ehgg' combines individual virtuosity with ensemble sensibility to create instrumental compositions, drawn from transcendental world, jazz, rock and new age genres.

The trio initially formed several years ago when luthier William Eaton designed his proto-type electric harp guitar. A long time fan of Anthony Mazzella and Fitzhugh Jenkins, Eaton invited them to try out the new instrument and to join and create the Electric Harp Guitar Group.

After several months of rehearsal the trio spent time at Wisdom Tree Studios in Sedona to record their self-titled "Electric Harp Guitar Group" album which was honored that year as one of the 'Top 25 'Essential CD's' by 'Echoes,' an internationally syndicated radio program.

The Electric Harp Guitar Group is currently working on a new album that promises to visit yet unexplored musical landscapes, and will showcase some of their new material at the Relics concert.

"We thought it would be fitting to preview new songs at Relics," Anthony Mazzella said, "where we played our first concert. The group has come along way since then."

One reviewer described their music as "composed jams embedded with trance groove rhythms, accompanied by melodic - 'archetype' guitar riffs, designed to transport listeners to a place of collective memory, ambient contemplation and sonic resonance."

Each musician brings diverse talent and creative technique to this 'one night only' concert. Anthony Mazzella is recognized as one of the most innovative and technically proficient guitar players in the world, and was voted as "one of the top 10 guitarists in the U.S." by Guitar One magazine.

Fitzhugh Jenkins has become renowned for his versatility on acoustic, classical, electric and bass guitars and his performing and recording career has taken him around the United States, Europe, India, Canada, and Hawaii. 

William Eaton is acknowledged as one of the world's great designers and builders of unique guitars and stringed instruments. He is a four-time GRAMMY nominee, NAMMY winner, and long time recording artist for Canyon Records.

Eaton is also the current director of the longest-running guitar making school in North America, Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery, a school he co-founded in 1975 with John Roberts and Bob Venn.

Come enjoy an evening of music with the Electric Harp Guitar Group and the fine cuisine and beverages at Relics Restaurant and Roadhouse on Thursday, July 24th at 7 p.m. Admission to the concert for dinner guests is $15. Admission for those who would like to attend the concert only is $20.

To make reservations for dinner and the concert please call 928-282-1953.

Relics Restaurant and Roadhouse is located at 3235 West Highway 89A in Sedona. For more information, please visit relicsrestaurant.com or call 928-282-1953.

...Sounds like a wine review. Can anyone figure out what this means?
