Damjan Pejcinoski,Ivan Mihaljevic,Dragianni: announced for Omis Guitar Fest 2012

The 3rd Omis Guitar Festival is upon us. Following the success of two previous events, the organisers are promising that this year’s festival will be bigger and better. They even secured the patronage of none other but the president of Croatia, Mr Ivo Josipovic.

Although designed as a guitar competition, this year’s fest will include staged performances, guitar workshops, gear exhibition and lectures on relevant subjects like marketing, copyright issues etc.

The Live4guitar team would like to join the organizers in extending an invitation to everyone who wishes to demonstrate their guitar skill, meet fellow guitarists, or simply come along to enjoy good music and hospitality of this beautiful town.

NEW Jeff Loomis signature model sneak peek available pre-order Neal's Music

JEFF LOOMIS, ex-Nevermore guitar prodigy, has been added to the 24-date, coast-to-coast US tour with PROTEST THE HERO, PERIPHERY, THE SAFETY FIRE and TODAY I CAUGHT THE PLAGUE. JEFF LOOMIS reveals the quality players he's brought in to accompany him on the stage:

Joe Nurre - guitar (Shaded Enmity)
Gregory Macklin - bass (System Divide, Ordinance)
Anup Sastry - drums (Intervals, Skyharbor)

"My good friend, Joe Nurre from up here in Seattle, will be playing guitar with me out on this run with Protest the Hero and Periphery. Some of you might have seen him play with Nevermore on the 70000 Tons of Metal cruise last year. I was lucky enough to find this killer drummer online. His name is Anup Sastry, I've seen him do these perfect drum covers on his Youtube page. I reached out and learned he plays in a few great bands as well. You should check out all the stuff he's done. Anup is based out in the DC area and brought in a friend of his, Greg Macklin, to do bass. Those guys are going to be getting together out there to start practicing the set. Joe and I will do the same over here and then a couple weeks before the tour, Joe and I will fly over Maryland and we'll all rehearse until we get things perfect. I can't wait to get out there and start playing live again. See you soon."

The tour begins March 25th in Chicago, IL and will lead up the release of the new album, "Plains Of Oblivion" on April 9th in Europe and April 9th in the US, before wrapping up in Philadelphia, PA on April 22nd.
