Virgil Donati pays homage to the sublime music of Allan Holdsworth, whom he worked with live, and in the studio, for the past six years before his untimely passing. The musicians will feature the final line up that toured with the legendary guitar icon, including Steve Hunt on keyboards, Evan Marien on bass, and Alex Machacek on guitar.
Having recently won Modern Drummer Magazine's best recorded performance, the bar has been set for rhythm explorations. Virgil’s drumming has arguably been at the leading edge for at least a decade. Originally from Melbourne, Virgil has been living in the USA for the past 25 years. He plays major venues around the world, non-stop. This is the second residency for Virgil at Bird's Basement and we are honoured to host him for this special tribute to Allan Holdsworth where he will appear with the Holdsworth's most recent line up.
