Due to injuries sustained this summer to both his shoulders, having broken both humerus bones, Mike Stern has canceled tour dates for October including his scheduled appearance for October 16th. Hopefully, there will be a rescheduled date in Spring 2017. Tickets for the original October 16, 2016 date will be honored for the new date once confirmed. No new ticket purchase will be needed. For those that wish to return their tickets for a refund immediately, ticket refunds will be issued at point of purchase. Tickets purchased at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre or Ponte Vedra Concert Hall Box Offices will be refunded at the Box Office.
The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall, in partnership with Flying Saucer Presents, is pleased to welcome jazz fusion and rock guitar legend Mike Stern and his Trio featuring Richie Morales and Teymur Phell. Mike Stern, one of the most esteemed electric guitarists of his generation, has distinguished himself over a four-decade career that has encompassed musical partnerships with Blood, Sweat & Tears, Billy Cobham, Miles Davis, Jaco Pastorius, the Brecker Brothers and Joe Henderson, as well as 16 recordings as a leader (six of which were nominated for GRAMMY Awards). An electrifying soloist whose blistering chops combine rock-fusion firepower with sophisticated jazz harmonies and his inherently bluesy string bending prowess, Stern has the ability to instantly elevate the proceedings on any gig or session he plays by channeling the spirits of his own personal guitar heroes Jimi Hendrix, Wes Montgomery, Jim Hall and Albert King. Stern was presented with Guitar Player magazine’s Certified Legend Award on January 21, 2012.
Stern will be joined by drummer Richie Morales, a versatile player whose credits range from the seminal jazz-fusion of the Brecker Brothers and Mike Stern, the Latin jazz of Gato Barbieri, Ray Barretto and GRAMMY-Award winning Latin Jazz flutist Dave Valentin, to the experimental and innovative jazz of Dave Brubeck, George Russell, and the world music of Herbie Mann. Bass virtuoso Teymur Phell has built his reputation as a vibrant player, performing with artists such as Danielia Cotton, Alex Young, Leni Stern, Kevin Salem, Lafayette Harris, and Oz Noy; as well as landing major gigs with jazz greats such as Mike Stern
and Arturo Sandoval.
The Ronan School of Music and Flying Saucer Presents have partnered to offer a guitar clinic with the 6-time GRAMMY-nominated jazz guitarist Mike Stern. A limited number of tickets will be available for purchase, and all ages are invited to attend. The 90-minute clinic will begin at 5pm, and a winner will be selected from the clinic participation and will be offered an opportunity to open the evening’s show with a short set.
Doors 7:00pm / Show 8:00pm
