Back in October of 2017, Law Vegas, Nevada suffered a horrific event when a deranged gunman opened fire on a crowd of people attending a concert. These events have not been forgotten and Emmy-winning guitarist and producer Brian Tarquin has dedicated his latest release to helping the families of the victims of that mass shooting. Tarquin's new album is titled "Vegas Blue" and features eleven tracks that Brian felt the need to write to order to help cope with the pain from that evening. Brian Tarquin also invited some of his close friends to help with the music on this new release.
He begins with the dual blazing guitar attack of "Distant Light," which features the work of Steve Morse (Deep Purple) and Hal Lindes (Darling). Next, the band lock into the hard rock groove of "Lights Of Las Vegas" which deals head on with the tragedy with Phil Naro on vocals and Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (Guns 'N' Roses) on some stellar guitar. Bassist Trey Gunn (King Crimson) locks into the dark tones of "Demonic," before musician Tony Carey (Rainbow) lends a hand on the more upbeat, energetic instrumental "Evil In Men's Hearts." Phil Naro returns for the emotional ballad "Forgiveness" and Trey Gunn gives us a another spin with the intense rhythms of "Hallowed Ground." Brian Tarquin closes out his new album with the frantic, hard rock delivery of "Run For Cover" and a vocal version of the opening instrumental track "Distant Light," which certainly showcases the artists' passion for this project.
