Friday we've got open mic, which is awesome enough, but this Saturday we have a 
very special appearance by Austrian percussive guitarist Thomas Leeb. Don't 
miss this rare opportunity to enjoy a performance in our cozy listening room by 
an internationally-acclaimed talent.

The Reno Music Project presents Thomas Leeb in Concert
Saturday, February 22nd @ 7:00pm
$18 advance, $20 door

ALL AGES welcome - Adult beverages available

Golden Rose Cafe @ Wildflower Village
4395 West 4th Street

Thomas Leeb picked up the guitar for the same reason as every 
thirteen-year-old boy: he wanted to meet girls. He soon fell in love 
with the instrument, played his first solo concert at the age of fifteen
 and released his first acoustic guitar album at seventeen.

Leeb is a frequent performer at concerts and festivals in Asia, the 
Americas and Europe and has been featured in numerous guitar magazines 
all over the world.  Every year, he teaches workshops and master classes
 in universities and colleges and his album “Desert Pirate” was voted 
one of the essential albums of the last twenty years by Acoustic Guitar 

His peculiar guitar style owes as much to percussive 
techniques as traditional fingerstyle guitar. What sets Thomas Leeb 
apart from some of his contemporaries is his ability to make 
pyrotechnics serve the music and three years studying West African 
traditional music give him a sense of timing and groove that is unusual 
in a guitarist.
All this has earned him a loyal world-wide following
 and influential fans such as Eric Roche who was his guitar teacher, 
“for about five minutes and then I heard him play”, Jon Gomm awarded him
 “ten out of ten Gomms” and Guthrie Govan who thinks that “what Thomas 
does on an acoustic guitar probably shouldn’t be legal.”
