World-class touring guitarists Brady Novotny and Zack Wiesinger debut their local answer to the G3 tour at Hard Rock Cafe on Saturday, March 21, 2020.
Hurry, hurry, hurry! Step right up, folks. See the greatest, the most colossal, the most stupendous, the most gigantic, the most sensational…THE GUITAR FREAKS!
On Saturday, March 21, 2020, Pittsburgh-based guitarists Brady Novotny (Top 5 iTunes chart) and “Guitar” Zack Wiesinger (Misaligned Mind) will debut their local answer to Joe Satriani’s G3 Tour. “The Guitar Freaks: A Sideshow Of Flying Fingers” will take place at Hard Rock Cafe in Station Square. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Advanced tickets are available at https://www.bradynovotny.com/the-guitar-freaks. Pre-purchased tickets will be uniquely designed, numbered and signed.
Brady Novotny explains, “Zack and myself are cousins. Although we both live in Pittsburgh, we never actually played together, nor had even been formerly introduced to each other. Jim Pitulski (formerly of Inside Out Records) and Julius Zoller were the ones that introduced us. We played a small show together this past summer, and I thought it would be a cool idea to put together a local G3 of Pittsburgh guitarists called, ‘Guitar Freaks.’ This first show is our debut performance, and it will be just the two of us. We will each play a set, and then, end with a Grand Finale of Zack and I playing together. Ultimately, we’d like to add a third guitarist, for a true ‘3-ring-circus.’ We will be playing this show in the tri-state area, possibly putting together a tour. We plan on growing this endeavor to make it an unforgettable experience and show!”
