Called one of the 100 greatest living guitarists by Classic Rock magazine, Gary Lucas is best known for his membership in Captain Beefheart’s Magic Band and as a sideman to Jeff Buckley. On December 3, the New York guitar god himself will return to Quinn’s for a rare solo acoustic set.

Besides Beefheart and Buckley, Lucas has also performed with such icons as Leonard Bernstein Lou Reed, John Cale, Patti Smith, Allen Ginsberg, Iggy Pop, David Johansen, Bob Weir, Chris Cornell, John Zorn, Bryan Ferry, Dr. John, and Nick Cave, among countless others. The coauthor of Buckley’s “Mojo Pin” and “Grace,” he also founded the band Gods and Monsters, which accompanied Buckley in the early 1990s. For the Beacon performance, he’ll be joined by local musician Jordan Shapiro.

Here’s Lucas with Captain Beefheart in 1980:

Gary Lucas will perform at Quinn’s in Beacon, New York, on December 3 at 8pm. Admission is $10. For more information, call (845) 202-7447 or visit https://www.facebook.com/QuinnsBeacon/.
