Neil Zaza

Background information
Origin Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.
Genres Instrumental rock
Years active 1987 - Present

Neil Zaza is a melodic instrumental guitarist who has become well known for his technical accuracy and adaptation of classical works by Bach and Mozart into his own blend of neo-classical, melodic, guitar instrumentals.

Before beginning a solo career, Neil Zaza formed in 1987 the rock band ZAZA which toured U.S. and released an album called Party With The Big Boys in 1991 [1][2]. After his second solo album, Zaza was as a guest soloist with The Hartford Symphony Orchestra, performing “1492” and a guitar interpretation of “West Side Story”.

His CDs often include guest appearances by veteran musicians including:

He has also shared the stage with notable guitarists such as Joe Satriani. His two Disc set One Silent Night was recorded live at the Palace Theater in Cleveland with the backing of the 60 piece Cleveland Rock Orchestra and features his adaptation of popular Christmas songs to his melodic style.

Neil Zaza is known for his heroic and spectacular entrances, often suddenly appearing from behind projector screens to provide his signature brand of neo-classical guitar riffage to previously unappealing and generic pop songs, magically transforming them into undeniably righteous masterpieces of modern shred.
