From July 29th to August 1st, Guy Brogna, from the legendary bands Scatterbrain and Ludichrist is back together with Scatterbrain drummer Mike Boyko performing as part of the backing rhythm section alongside two legends; namely Steve Vai and Joe Satriani, and some of the best national and upstart musicians around the world, at this year’s Steve Vai Academy 5.0 – happening at The Mansion at Glen Cove, 200 Dosoris Ln, Glen Cove, NY 11542.
Vai Academy 5.0 is an event for players and music-lovers of all ages, levels, interests, and taste. Master players, beginners, and enthusiastic fans take part in a four day program which offers activities and workshops. The environment is non-competitive and is strictly about immersing oneself in the joys of music in their lovely surroundings.
Guy remarked, “It’s an honor to play with such seasoned musicians, helping to give emerging acts and hobbyists alike a chance to express themselves at a high level; performing with people who have succeeded in getting to the top of the business”.
Also involved in the Academy this year are other accomplished artists and music industry professionals including ANDY TIMMONS, DEVIN TOWNSEND, LARRY MITCHELL, PLINI, MATT PICONE, DAVE WEINER, JEREMY COLSON, PHILLIP BYNOE, DOUG DOPPLER, STIG MATHISEN, STEPHANIE BRADLEY, CHRIS CISNEROS and FEDERICO MIRANDA.
