Formed in 2002 by Bill Lancton, The Indianapolis Guitar Summit is an
exciting, unique group of musicians. Consisting of three to five
guitarists, plus bass and drums, the group presents an entertaining,
energetic show, ranging from straight ahead jazz standards to Latin jazz
and funk jazz. Although the repertoire is always evolving, expect tunes
by Miles Davis, Wes Montgomery, Django Rheinhardt, Grant Green, Joni
Mitchell, Thelonius Monk, and the Beatles, among many others.
The Indianapolis Guitar Summit performs bi-annually to packed houses at
The Jazz Kitchen in Indianapolis, and has appeared at, among other
places, The Indiana State Museum Jazz Concert Series, Concerts by the
Canal, The Indiana Avenue Renaissance Festival, and the Wes Montgomery
Jazz Festival (WesFest).
Although every guitarist in town shows up to hear the group play, it
appeals to everyone that loves great music played by great musicians.
