Barry Zweig and Shane Savala play Whittemore Archtops in Long Beach CA on Saturday January 17, 2015.  

Great Saturday duet with two fine musicians at the Federal Bar.  The guitars sounded great, but the musicianship was out of this world.  Check out the photo, and the FULL TUNE video.  Nice playing gentlemen!



Get out there and support local live music!!  Both of these great players are out there in LA area often!


THANKS Barry and Shane.
