“Like U2 but with Van Halen-esque solos”: That’s how the media has described the instrumental rock of guitarist Patrick DeCoste. In the great tradition of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jeff Beck, DeCoste combines virtuoso skills with rock and roll attitude to create his own unique sound. He’s got the chops to play in the orchestra pit for the Grammy-winning musical HAIRSPRAY, and the swagger to play his own original interpretation of the Star Spangled Banner at Shea Stadium.
A recipient of Live Act of the Year and Artist of the Year nominations, DeCoste delivers at some of the region’s best venues. Serious musicians will appreciate his skills; music fans will love his melodic hooks and memorable melodies.
