September and October will be very busy months for Steve Vai and his web site. Not only will we be making some drastic changes to the site, but we will also bring you 2 very exclusive online events. Below is a list of the upcoming online events:


September 17, 1996
8:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time

September 17th will certainly be a landmark day for Steve Vai. Not only will his infamous heart shaped guitar and Austrian crystal covered suit be inducted into the Hard Rock Cafe’s memorabilia collection, but his newest release Fire Garden will be officially released into stores. We will be celebrating these two events simultaneously on the web site. Starting at 8:00 p.m., you will be able to hear Fire Garden in it’s entirety while watching up to the minute coverage of the events going on at the Hard Rock Cafe. We will be having giveaways throughout the night and who knows, maybe Steve will even jump online to say hello. Keep checking back with us for up to date information.


September 28, 1996
8:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time

In a reunion of a Grammy Award-winning creative partnership, rock guitarist/composer Steve Vai and composer/conductor Joel Thome will present Soundcurrent: A Musical Celebration, an evening of crossover music by classical and rock musicians, on Saturday, September 28 at 8:00 pm at the Eastman Theatre in Rochester, New York.
