It was a huge honor to open for the one and only Adrian Belew Nov. 4, 2014 at the Boulder Theater. Adrian is a true pioneer of the sonic possibilities of the electric guitar, and his show was revolutionary brilliance to say the least. I brought a power trio of my own featuring the slamming rhythm section of Christian Teele on drums and Jeff Fournier on bass. It was a career highlight to share the amazing Boulder Theater stage with a legend.

Continuing a love for classic English blues and psychedelic rock, steeped in soaring electric guitars and organs with huge bass and drums, Patrick's original "blues-fusion" music takes an original approach to a revered style and strives to follow heros such as David Gilmour, Jimmy Page, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Joe Bonamassa.

"Guitarist Patrick Latella has been responsible for some of the more epic, original, improvisational based bands in the Boulder area for over ten years." ~ Jeff Smith, Marquee Magazine

"Latella's an amazing guitarist, vocalist and songwriter. The band goes technically and creatively way beyond most." ~ Here & Now, Telluride Watch

"The musicianship here is superb...the obvious chops of the musicians shine through across the entire track list and the listeners hear a musical conversation...funky and exploratory." ~ Brian Johnson, Marquee Magazine, (review of my last release, "Dreaming In The Southern Sun", written & produced by Patrick Latella)

"A dreamscape of jazz and jam, smart compositions and airy vibrations. What makes the music work is the solid groove backbone that provides the necessary visceral component that fills both the dance floor and your head." ~ Vince Darcangelo, Boulder Weekly (review of my release, "The Ethereal Plane", written & produced by Patrick Latella)

"It takes on a shine that is particular to itself with a new age and world beat funkiness...this is a fantastic album" ~ Dave Terpeny, Kyndmusic.com (review of my release, "The Ethereal Plane", written & produced by Patrick Latella)

"The signature sound is an almost straight ahead, intricate and tight rock tune that drifts off into outer space for a hypnotic and mind-boggling jam in the middle. Looping lines and textures, the band creates an incredible mesh of rhythmic patterns, funky grooves, melodic harmonies, and controlled chaos." ~ Mark Steele, The Telluride Watch

"Guitars that sound as if they are coming to you over the speakers of the Mothership." ~ Autumn Phillips, Steamboat Pilot

"This music is down and dirty fusion of the highest caliber patiently built right before your ears. Although one can only describe the music's way of drawing the listener in as entrancing, the word does not fully do the music justice. While the enchanting effect may pull the listener in, it's the elaborate interplay of instruments and layering that really gives the sounds of Butterhead its punch." ~ Jeff Smith, The Mountain Ear (review of my release, "Symphonic Fusion", written & produced by Patrick Latella)

"Instrumental grooves and intensely wonderful marathon jams." ~ Boulder Weekly (review of my release, "Symphonic Fusion", written & produced by Patrick Latella)
