Al Di Meola at Newberry Opera


Jazz guitar and living legend Al Di Meola will be performing live at Newberry Opera House on Sunday, March 20th at 3pm.  If you haven’t taken the 45 minute drive to historic Newberry there is no better excuse than to see this grammy award winning jazz guitarist.   Meola played with Chick Corea’s group in the 70’s and has toured with Carlos Santana.   (Too bad he hasn’t appeared with Dave Matthews otherwise half you idiots from USC would go experience a true jazz legend.)
Meola is touring to promote his latest album out March 15th called Pursuit of Radical Rhapsody.  Joining Meola on the album are former Weather Report drummer Peter Erskine, Percussionist Mino Cinelu,  and Hungary’s Sturcz String Quartet.
If this show doesn’t sell out it will be as disgraceful as the empty upper section of the Township when B.B. King played there in 2005.
If you are wondering why great musicians don’t pass through the Columbia area, try getting your ass out to these amazing shows when they are available!
