March 24 — Derek Sherinian will join Joe Satriani’s touring band for a pair of live shows this summer.
The famed keyboardist will join Satriani’s touring band for concerts on July 1 at Jones Beach Amphitheater in Wantagh, NY and July 2 at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in Bethel, NY.
Sherinian said in a prepared statement, he is looking forward to joining the band, which also features Kenny Aronoff on drums and Mark Menghi on bass.
“I am honored to have been personally invited by Joe play these shows with him,” Sherinian said. “He is one of the greats, and I knew I was destined to play with him sooner or later.”
