The Guitar Trifecta


In sports parlance, a Trifecta is defined as a run of three wins. In music, the Guitar Trifecta features award-winning guitarists Calvin Keys, Carl Lockett and Lloyd Gregory, a collective of three true champions of their instrument.

Formed in the spring of 2018, the members of the Guitar Trifecta have each individually established impressive careers as band leaders and recording artists, while also performing and/or recording with many of music’s legends and icons, including Ray Charles, Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson, Jimmy Smith, Ahamd Jamal, Bobby Hutcherson (Calvin Keys), Chuck Mangione, Randy Crawford, Hank Crawford, Joey DeFrancesco (Carl Lockett), Martha Reeves, Harvey Mason, Joe Sample, Stanley Clarke, George Duke (Lloyd Gregory) and many others.

The distinct voice of each member, from the soulful and melodic grooves of Lloyd Gregory to the muscular single note solo style of Calvin Keys to the exhilarating creativity of Carl Lockett, combine to create the type of musical conversations that Wes Montgomery would listen in on.

Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Children under 12 are free. Advance tickets are available at the link below, or you may purchase your tickets at the door the night of the show. Doors open one half hour before show time. We accept cash only at the door (ATMs are nearby). 

The Back Room is an all-ages, BYOB (for those 21+) space, dedicated to (mostly) acoustic music of all kinds. You are welcome to bring your own adult beverage with no additional corkage fee. If you need more information or have any questions, please call us: #510-654-3808. Thank you for your support!
