ALASTAIR GREENE – BLUES ROCK GUITARIST & VOCALIST ALASTAIR GREENE BAND

Blues and Rock have met at many different crossroads... From Cream and Johnny Winter to Stevie Ray Vaughan and Gov’t Mule, these Blues Rock recipes are often boiled down to a simple trio. Such is the melting pot of influences and presentation of the Alastair Greene Band. Greene formed the first version of his Blues Rock trio in 1997 with former members of the legendary Southern California band The Pontiax. Currently, the line-up has solidified with Alastair Greene on guitar and vocals, Jim Rankin on bass and vocals, and Austin Beede on drums.

Not only is Greene a Blues Rock guitar slinging and singing front man, but he has also served many years as a side man to some legendary musicians. Greene toured as guitarist with the Alan Parsons Live Project from 2010 to May 2017.  Alan Parsons was quoted as saying, "Alastair should be out playing guitar with the biggest bands in the world. I believe it's just a matter of time." Heady praise indeed coming from the man who engineered Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. Alastair has also toured with Starship featuring Mickey Thomas and has performed onstage with Eric Burdon of the Animals, Slash of Guns n Roses, and Blues legends such as Walter Trout, Coco Montoya, Debbie Davies and many more.
