Joe Satriani's fifth annual G4 Experience guitar camp to feature Neal Schon, Rick Nielsen and more stars

Courtesy of Dreamcatcher EventsGuitar whiz Joe Satriani has announced plans for a fifth annual edition of his G4 Experience guitar camp and concert series, "G4 Experience V5.0: Rocks the Desert," which takes place January 3-7, 2019, at Hotel Zoso in Palm Springs, California.

Among the guest instructors who will take part in the event are Journey's Neal Schon, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen, former David Bowie guitarist Carlos Alomar, ex-Guns N' Roses guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal and Megadeth's Kiko Loreiro.

The four-day extravaganza offers guitar workshops, jam sessions, nightly concerts, meet-and-greets, recreational activities and more.

"The students that have come to the first four G4 Experiences have been as unique and eclectic as you could imagine so for G4 Eexperience V5.0 I've put together a team of instructors that really reflects that diverse nature," says Satriani in a statement. "The lineup this year is probably our best yet. It's so exciting, getting to be so totally immersed and getting to be so close to these great players."

Joe, who also is a member of the Sammy Hagar-fronted supergroup Chickenfoot, will be joined at the upcoming G4 Experience by his solo touring band -- guitarist/keyboardist Mike Keneally, bassist Bryan Beller and drummer Joe Travers -- who will perform with him each night and also will serve as instructors.
