Points North Band



We're busy working on a new record, but we are still playing select shows in 2018...


Anchored by the return of the amazing Guitars Under the Stars festival in Lebanon, Oregon, we're excited for this run of summer dates - starting with two performances at the festival, and ending with a long-overdue return to Vinnie's in Concord, where it "all began".

Here's all the details:

July 26 & 29, 2018
Guitars Under the Stars
Cheadle Lake Park
37919 Wierich Drive
Lebanon Oregon 97355

This will be our third time at Guitars Under the Stars.  The lineup is amazing as ever - and this time we get to perform twice.

First, on Thursday July 26, we'll be headlining the opening night of the festival, performing as "Fred Barchetta" - playing an extended set of Rush songs, with the wonderful Kristina Borja on vocals.

And then on Sunday July 29, we'll be direct support for 80s pop legends Quarterflash, performing our original material.

In between are so many of our favorites & friends, including Gary Hoey, Ty Curtis, RDG, Larry Mitchell, Ed to Shred, Symbolic, Ben Woods, and more.

2045 Mount Diablo Street
Concord, California
8 PM

Where it all began.  As we were first starting out, the first venue we really started to build an audience was in Concord, at Vinnie's.   From packed houses to bar fights, we cut our teeth there and started to figure out that this crazy instrumental trio thing might actually work.

And we're headlining a bill with two of our favorite acts too - Phantom Power, with the incredible Josh Zee and Johnnie Axtell on guitar, and Arkaen, featuring Joey Nunes (Full on Flyhead).

For all details and advance tickets visit the event Facebook Page.
