Join Aren Roth, his band and his VERY special guest for an evening of precision riffs, runs and hooks. Career defining songs such as Do You Believe in Magic, Summer In The City, You Didn’t Have To Be So Nice, Darlin’ Be Home Soon, Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind?, Younger Girl, Welcome Back, Nashville Cats and many more should tip you off to who this "very special guest" is! Now get set to hear Arlen lend a hand (two hands, actually) on some of your favorites!

Arlen's considered one of the most influential guitarists of all time and has toured the world and recorded with countless artists of note. They include John Sebastian, Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, John Prine, Phoebe Snow, Levon Helm, Ry Cooder, Janis Ian, Eric Andersen, The Bee Gees and so many more.

His first album Guitarist, won the Montreaux Critics Award for Best Instrumental Album of the year in 1978, and his 12th album, All Tricked Out! Garnered 4 Grammy Nominations. His prowess on the Telecaster has earned him the nickname “Master of The Telecaster” and also a master of Slide Guitar, he released a Slide Guitar Summit album featuring duets with many slide guitar greats such as Johnny Winter (Johnny’s last recording), Sonny Landreth, Cindy Cashdollar, Greg Martin, Lee Roy Parnell, Jimmy Vivino, David Lindley, Rick Vito, Jack Pearson and others! This album is similar to his classic and legendary album Toolin’ Around (1993) which featured duets with greats such as Danny Gatton, Duane Eddy, Brian Setzer, Duke Robillard, Albert Lee, Sam Bush Bill Lloyd and Jerry Douglas, and which also was a documentary. He followed up that album with Toolin’ around Woodstock with LEVON HELM, with special guests Sonny Landreth, Amy Helm, Lexie Roth and Bill Kirchen.

His most recent album, for 2017 is TELEMASTERS, an album mostly recorded in Nashville, featuring Arlen in duets with other Telecaster Masters such as BRAD PAISLEY, VINCE GILL, STEVE CROPPER, STEVE WARINER, JOE BONAMASSA, BRENT MASON, ALBERT LEE, JOHNNY HILAND, JERRY DONAHUE, WILL RAY, REDD VOLKAERT, BILL KIRCHEN and JACK PEARSON. This album, as well as the Slide Summit are both Produced by the Grammy-award winning Tom Hambridge, who is also on the drums.

Due to be released in 2018 is a duet album Arlen is doing with the legendary JOHN SEBASTIAN, in tribute to John’s music, lead guitarist Zal Yanovsky, and to the LOVIN’ SPOONFUL who were a huge influence on Arlen when he was growing up as a guitarist! This album is part of an ongoing series of “tribute” albums he has done, including SIMON & GARFUNKEL, BOB DYLAN and The ROLLING STONES.

Arlen continues to record and tour all over the world, getting sell-out crowds and standing ovations wherever he appears!! Arlen is also the founder and CEO of the new International Guitar Hall of Fame and Museum, which has been a long-time dream of his that he hopes one day to become a reality!
