American Youth Symphony performance at Disney Hall LA.

Hey folks, Steve here.

I’m thrilled to announce that I will be performing at Disney Hall in Los Angeles with “American Youth Symphony” on March 11, 2017. I’ve been going to concerts at Disney Hall since it was constructed and feel tremendous appreciation to have been invited to perform my music there. The pieces that will be performed are…

1. There’s Still Something Dead In Here (without Steve)
2. Kill the Guy with the Ball (with Steve)
3. The Murder (with Steve)
4. Call it Sleep (with Steve)

These pieces were chosen by Carlos Izcaray who is the exceptional conductor of this event. It’s interesting to note that the first 3 pieces are perhaps some of my darkest and most brooding music.

“There’s Still Something Dead in Here” is a complex, dense and very atonal piece of contemporary music.
“Kill the Guy with the Ball” is violently fast and furious and the Orchestra version is just ripping.
“The Murder” is macabre and harmonically heavy.
“Call It Sleep” is from Flex-Able with an updated symphonic orchestration and will be a blessed relief after the first pieces.

Interesting that all the titles of these pieces could lead one to believe I have a preoccupation with Death! Truth is, I’m way too alive for that. Hope to see you at the show.

This sounds amazing!...But wait a minute, Vai is plugged into it. Couldn’t he have taken a Metal Zone, painted it green, put cream knobs on it, put the VAI logo on it, and we still oooh and ahh over him playing through it? lol (*NOTE* To any butthurt haters who want to rip me a new one: A) I don’t swing that way. B) It’s a sarcastic JOKE! Look it up on your “smart” phone. I am offended that I even feel the need to explain this, but these are the days we are in. Have a good one!

Steve Vai, are you playing the pedal into a clean amp in this demo? Any additional effects other than reverb/delay? It sounds amazing!

I wanna see how this sounds plugged into my 6505 mini heads effects loop return for sure would be cool to have a clean option you know

I surprised how buzzy it sounds.. for a carvin. There are some great pedals out there. Lots competition 👍🏼

I have a "Vai-Sound" in my HELIX. That also sounds amazing. Before, I had and amp with the Jemini Pedal from Steve. That also sounded great. But Steve sounds like Steve because of his fingers.

When can we see what it's like when someone without Vai's setup plays it?

beautifull to play with the name of my town !!! lol !!it's in the north of France near Belgium !!! :D

is that really just the pedal if so it would make the legacy amp redundant wouldnt it ?!!

Ready to see more demos. Steve could make anything sound good.

Steve, this is perfect for those of who can't afford the legacy amps. Thank you!!

Frank Harrison, you need this in your life... so I can come over and play with it!

wahooo, kemper now available in a small pedal?

Looks good, I had x100b but sounds the same. Just add rat.

sounds sweet. very tubey. i don't do power amps though so i don't think i'd consider buying one.

It's a nice pedal. I give it prop. Distinct sounds that I like are what lures me.

How much?

Steve Vai is the "Chuck Norris" of Guitar!

Eddie carvin pedals look dope

I think my eyes went playing that way too.

nice tone!!

Javier Galbis, el alumno que supero al maestro!

thank steve!!!
