6 Guitars, 1 Musician, 5 Stars

6 Guitars is a pitch perfect blend of music, comedy and unforgettable characters. Chase Padgett delivers a virtuosic performance as he becomes 6 different guitar players – each with their own distinct voice, views and musical style (Blues, Jazz, Rock, Classical, Folk and Country). Each character plays music, shares their history with music from discovery to mastery, and then celebrates or skewers the other genres.

“I don’t need fancy chords for country. Just play G. What’s wrong with G? If your chord has a number in it you’re a jerk.” With plenty of laughs and songs from all genres this show is for the music lover in all of our hearts.
