Calvin Keys, Lloyd Gregory, and Carl Lockett are three of the most skilled musicians in the San Francisco Bay Area. They have each played on stage and in the studio with a variety of music industry giants across the musical spectrum. Individually, they have proven themselves worthy of the center stage with the attention they each command. Now, they have united as a trio to showcase their exceptional guitar skills. Their friendship spans decades, and together they have over 150 years of professional experience in music. Each of them started playing music in their youth and now holds their place on Oakland's 7th Street Blues Walk of Fame.”
Presented by Mark Elliott & The A-List Musiq Circle- Your Bay Area's Who's Who Entertainment Network.
