"You definitely have talent,..I'm hearing you as being a strong player with a good blues/rock feel and some real chops."

James Shane (guitarist- Canned Heat)

"Alastair is one of the best young rocking blues guitarists I've heard in a long time."


Alastair is an extremely gifted guitarist, whether playing effects heavy blues/rock or intense electric slide. He melds a touch of Walter Trout, a dash of Warren Haynes, and a pinch of Trower into a high powered blues/rock beast.

Blues-rock fans have been warming themselves to the fire under Alastair Greene’s lightning fingers for several years now. His Quicksilver finger work has likened comparisons to Stevie Ray Vaughan. His voice – what he jokingly calls “controlled shouting” – comes from somewhere deep and fierce within.

Those who prefer their blues amped up should be deafeningly pleased. Simply, he goes for it. Greene has a strong, baritone voice that often distorts his mic as the song reaches an apex.

" I really like it when you do your thing!!!"

Superficially, blues in Santa Barbara could only result from one-way street misdirection or parking more than a block from Nordstrom, but in reality, the area has a long and distinguished blues tradition. The Santa Barbara Blues Society is the nation's oldest; acoustic blues wiseguys Tom Ball and Kenny Sultan have been at it for decades; the Fabulous T-Birds frontman Kim Wilson is a local; and the Pontiax tore things up for years. And then there's Alastair Greene, blues-rock guitar monster, who will be like a god when and if long hair comes back.
