MUSASHI TRIO - The Real Deal!

Musashi "Moose" Lethridge has been composing, performing and recording blues, ska, funk, heavy metal, punk, and jazz in the SF bay area for over twenty five years. His eclectic, musical interests grew out of a rainbow of Japanese, African and Native American cultures. Funk and Blues best the describes sound and style of The Musashi Trio, although Musashi has been known to explore other genres of music as a guitar player. Musashi "Moose" Lethridge has also played and shared the stage with: Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, Todd Rundgren, Scott Page, D Lite, The Pharcyde, Fishbone, Critical Mass, The Berkeley Chill Factor, The Steve Gannon Blues Band, and many more..

His approach to "live" playing stems from an attitude that would satisfy the old school method. When asked about the topic of modern day music, which is based heavily on the aid of computer programming technology, his reply, “ …I need to draw the line between REAL live instruments and "other" kinds of instruments: A REAL live instrument cannot make a sound while unattended...ya gotta play it LIVE! “
The Musashi Trio is the real deal and you can hear them live dishing up some classic SRV, Jimi Hendrix, The Meters and some original Funk and Blues (as compiled from the bands website).
