It has become something of a phenomenon, the 'Steve Vai Masterclass'. Steve Vai is part of this select group of living guitar legends. He has left an indelible mark on guitar music.
Vai has made shredding into an art, he was the ever-experimenting guitarist with Frank Zappa, joined Alcatrazz, David Lee Roth and Whitesnake and really took off during the G3 tours. His solo albums are true masterpieces, “Passion And Warfare” from 1990 meant his breakthrough, “Modern Primitive” from 2016 his last album up till now. Between 2005 and 2011 he performed in special concerts with the Metropole Orkest and the Noord-Nederlands Orkest.
Yasi Hofer has been discovered by none other than Steve Vai himself. The 24-year-old German guitar virtuoso started playing guitar at the age of 12 and finds herself on stage for the first time at 14. When some of her YouTube videos attract the attention of Steve Vai, one of her biggest idols, this lady’s career really takes off. Vai looks at all her clips and closely follows her progress. When the time is right, he invites Yasi to play along with him. Her name is mentioned in many guitar magazines and soon she acquires worldwide fame. Together with her band she shares the stage with such greats as UFO, Chris Thompson and Neil Young. Besides Yasi, the band consists of bass player Steffen Knauss (Barry Robinson, Cecile Bonardi, Lee Mayall), keyboardist Simon Bamberger and drummer Christoph Scherer (Hellmut Hattler, Wolfgang Kehle). A must for fans of guitar heroes like Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and Jeff Beck!https://www.yasihofer.com/
