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.
