Mike Keneally Band
Guitar Therapy Live
In mid-2005, Mike Keneally felt an irresistible calling to assemble his dream-lineup Mike Keneally Band and take to the road for the first time in years. So Mike, bassboy extraordinaire Bryan Beller, sublimely zen guitarist Rick Musallam and impossible drummer Joe Travers braved deserted highway flat tires, indifferent promoters, communal hotel rooms and financial desolation to Bring The Rock to scattered hamlets across this great land of ours. Those who saw the "Guitar Therapy Live"shows were floored by the power, precision and concentrated emotion they experienced. And most nights, the band left the stage knowing something magical had gone down. Since this was very possibly a once-in-a-lifetime convergence, Exowax arranged digital multi-track recordings for some of the shows. Shortly after their return, Mike and Bryan listened to hours of live MKB performances and lovingly whittled them down to this energized CD featuring inspired new renditions of songs spanning Mike's career.
