Timo Somers, Barend Courbois, Atma Anur: Live at Jason Becker Fest

Timo Somers, Barend Courbois, Atma Anur look set to work on a rock fusion project during 2012 after their highly enjoyable session in Amsterdam


High energy performance by Timo Somers, Barend Courbois, Atma Anur, and keys (name to follow), during the 'Jason Becker's not Dead' festival, at the Patronaat venue in Haarlem, The Netherlands, on November 13th, 2011.

The festival was a mind blowing, near six hour marathon of world class guitar performances.

This clip is a single camera view from audience position, but a professional camera crew was also present to record the event in full, so watch out for the official video, to be released in the near future.

About the festival (from the festival webpage):
The first 'Not Dead Yet' Festival happened in San Francisco March 26, 2011. Guitar heroes like Joe Satriani, Steve Hunter, Greg Howe, Steve Lukather, Richie Kotzen, Michael Lee Firkins, Jeff Watson and others honored Jason Becker that night. This was very unique and touching.
In November 2011 Jason Becker's "Not Dead Yet" Festival will be held in Amsterdam.
Well respected guitar players and friends from Jason will perform during this unique special event. Proceeds from the evening go towards medical supplies for Jason as well as a trust fund to provide for his future security.
We have great guitar players like Guthrie Govan (Aristocrats), Michael Lee Firkins, Mattias IA Eklundh (Freak Kitchen), Kiko Loureiro (Angra), Andy James (Secret Mother Tongue and Lick Library teacher), Daniele Gottardo, Marco Sfogli (James LaBrie), Stephan Forte (Adagio), Joop Wolters, Marcel Coenen (Sun Caged), Timo Somers (Delain).
On the drums we have a drummer who has played like with all possible guitar players you ever heard off, on bass we have the well renowned Stuart Hamm (Satriani, Vai, G3, Frank Gambale), Barend Courbois and Franck Hermanny (Adagio), on keys Rene Kroon (Sun Caged, Barstool Philosophers).
