Tony MacAlpine Electric Illusionist Tour

The Guitar Sanctuary is proud to present Tony MacAlpine and Arch Echo on Monday June 3rd at 8pm (doors open at 7) as part of Tony's "The Electric Illusionist" tour at The Sanctuary Music & Events Center.


VIP Tables with seating for 4 directly in front of the stage are $150 per table.


Downstairs Seats (First come, First Served) are $25.


General Admission (Standing Room Only) on the balcony Tickets are $10.


We will have standard Bar and Food Service available from our friends at Rick's Chophouse.


Tony MacAlpine is widely known as a guitar virtuoso who is just as skilled on the keys.  Edge of Insanity, one of fourteen solo albums, is still considered in the top ten shred albums of all time.  Aside from his solo work, Tony has also been part of several rock supergroups including Planet X with Derek Sherinian and Virgil Donati, PSMS,(Portnoy/Sheehan/MacAlpine/Sherinian) as well as the Grammy nominated CAB with bassist Bunny Brunel and drummer Dennis Chambers, and Ring of Fire with Steve Weingart, Mark Boals, Grammy winner Philip Bynoe, and Virgil Donati.  MacAlpine also spent seven years playing keys and duplicating Steve Vai’s formidable guitar leads in Vai's touring band.



Arch Echo is the brainchild of five musicians who wish to push the envelope of modern music.  "Our goal is to create music that is not only complex, but accessible to the listener, delivered with passion and enthusiasm."

Tony MacAlpine

Tony MacAlpine (born August 29, 1960) is an American musician and composer. In a career spanning three decades and thirteen studio albums, he is best known as an instrumental rock solo guitarist, although he has worked with many different bands and musicians in guest appearances and collaborations. Having started playing piano at the age of five and guitar at twelve, MacAlpine studied classical piano and violin for a number of years at the Springfield Conservatory of Music in Massachusetts, as well as various music programs at the University of Hartford in Connecticut. One of his musical influences is Frédéric Chopin, to whom he pays homage in his interpretations of the latter's études, which are featured on the majority of his studio albums. Together with his first studio releases, Edge of Insanity (1986) and Maximum Security (1987), he had a prominent role on other works during the popular shred era, including keyboard performances on the debut albums of fellow guitarists Vinnie Moore (Mind's Eye, 1986) and Joey Tafolla (Out of the Sun, 1987).

Arch Echo

Arch Echo is about the music. Cliché? Yeah. Idealistic? Absolutely. They are ultimately music nerds as all of this band's members work in the music industry professionally. Every day, hour and minute sees them writing, practicing, producing, performing, composing, teaching and practicing. Arch Echo is their new baby, a mutual creative product that has the hopes to play live as soon as possible.

This project brings to the table keyboardist, producer and composer Joey Izzo, known for his wall of sound style and melodic production ear. He composes with Joe Calderone at Tangent and runs his own Joey Izzo Productions.

Adam Rafowitz has been making waves in the progressive guitar world having won the first Strandberg Guitars competition 2 years back with his style of blazing legato and fusion laden riffs.

Adam Bentley is an up and coming modern progressive music engineer, guitarist and composer. His mixing tutorials have been widely viewed and have helped to earn him a reputation as a well trained ear in the progressive metal world. His solo project Absently released its debut LP this past year to widespread acclaim within the progressive metal community.

Joe Calderone is co-founder of Tangent Music LLC, a music house that has already had music on such networks as TNT, FOX, E! and the show Celebrity Apprentice in their first year of existence.

Richie Martinez is a frequent face to many drummers on Instagram where he has garnered 30k followers with his flashy, frequent and informative videos. He works full time as a session drummer and educator. He's also beating 50% with the wonderful Sophia :)

This is Arch Echo, and we plan to earn your ears!
