If you guys are looking for a 60's-70's guitar army type music local band Copperhead. 3 guitars, drums, bass/harmonica, no keyboards.
Looks like they are playing at "Englewoods" on Dearborn Steet, Englewood Fl. Its a nice outdoor patio, great place to see them.

I have a friend Todd Rogers that is one of the guitarists (on the right in the photos/videos) and trust me, you will be impressed. I worked with him for 20 years. He builds his own amps, modifies guitars, his motto: less is more and is a tone freak.
Best of all, you will go see them and be chatting with your friends, and all of a sudden he will start to what I call: shit and git, guarantee, he gets your attention, he will make your head turn right then and there and maybe even drop your jaw.

These guys opened up for Charlie Daniels at the Punta Gorda Block party a few years ago. Just a good local band with no drama, just a love of music.
I always tried to get them to play the plaza pre / post game when I lived in Florida but they never got hooked up with the right Lightning personnel to get booked.

Just wondered who you think the most all time under rated guitar player is.

My vote is Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac.

Amazing talent and I was lucky to see the live in Orlandos Gator Bowl about 1978.

I think I am going to throw in Stephen Curtis Chapman in the mix as well. Incredible and I have seen him live as well.
Check out his Taylor guitar test drive on you tube.

He is a special talent. His somewhat odd fingerpicking style is rarely used.

As more of an 80s/90s music guy, I would pick someone like Nuno Bettencourt or Steve Vai. Although, not sure if either of those guys would be considered "under rated".
