On Saturday, August 19th, 2006 at 8PM, the Inter-Media Art Center (also known as “IMAC”) in Huntington, Long Island will present a concert with rock guitarist Eric Johnson.

“Revolutionary”, “multifaceted” and “transcendent”; these words have all been used in attempts to define Grammy-winner Eric Johnson. They touch on that part of his talent that makes him valuable to us as an artist, the ever-unfolding aspect of his nature that causes each one of his albums to be eagerly anticipated by musicians and the public alike. His fans know that in creating his music, Johnson is not afraid to explore the emotional rivers of his talent, while still pushing the edge of virtuoso musicianship.

All the while Johnson’s reputation as one of the most intuitive and technically brilliant guitarists in the world continues to grow. Austin City Limits showcased his performances in 1985, the first of four appearances. Guitar stores were known to have “EJ” shrines. But being a fan was still like membership in a mystic society, his name a special password among the select few. His peers, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Steve Morse and Pat Metheny were already realizing world wide exposure through recording contracts but Johnson remains a darling of the underground, expanding his eclectic style and perfecting that violin tone in tightly packed clubs.

Tickets for this performance are $37.50 ($28.50 for IMAC Members). For tickets or further information on this performance, or on other IMAC programs, call IMAC's 24-hour Arts-Line at (631) 549-ARTS.
