Jim Weider

A master of classic telecaster guitar, Jim Weider, is renowned for his Rock and Blues-based signature sound. He is among a select group of musicians with an endorsement from Fender Stratocaster Guitars and, for the past three decades, he’s earned enormous respect from fellow musicians and music fans throughout the world. Born and raised in the famed arts colony of Woodstock, New York, Jim received great acclaim during his long tenure (1985-2000) as lead guitarist (replacing Robbie Robertson) for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, The Band. During 15 years of international touring with original members Levon Helm, Garth Hudson and Rick Danko, Jim was featured on numerous albums, films, videos and television appearances.

G.E. Smith

G.E. Smith was the music Director and led the Saturday Night Live (SNL) band for 10 years. During this time, he also toured with Bob Dylan for four years. He also helped Mike Myers write a song for Aerosmith for when they performed on SNL. GE Smith was sought out by major recording artists like Jagger, who, shortly after Live Aid, called Smith to work with him on his first solo album, She’s the Boss. During this period Smith also did a few one-off recordings and concerts with David Bowie and Peter Wolfe. He just finished a three-year run with Roger Water’s Wall Live worldwide tour.  www.gesmithmusic.com
