The Guitar Trifecta

Independently, guitarists Calvin Keys, Lloyd Gregory, and Carl Lockett are three of the most skilled musicians the San Francisco Bay Area has to offer. While each has played on stage and in the studio with a variety of music industry giants across the musical spectrum, they have also individually proven themselves worthy of the center stage attention they each command. They have united as a trio to spotlight what can only be described as a guitar trifecta. Friends for decades, the sum total of their years as professional musicians is over 150 years, each of them having started in their youth.
