Danney Alkana, a skilled guitar player from Southern California, put down his axe in 1981 when his band broke up. Fourteen years go by, and Alkana is working part time in a music store. A customer begs him to play one day, which suddenly rekindles his love of making music once again. Brought together with Lee Smith from Four Winds Records, Alkana is encouraged to record a totally unique and demanding project...

a rock set of songs by classical composers. The result is Rock the Bach; an amazing ten tracks that will lift your spirits, blending virtuoso guitar with the time tested melodies and intricate orchestration of Beethoven, Mozart, Vivaldi, Bach, and more. The multi talented Alkana produces the album, and also provides all the instrumentation, mixing his guitars with an electric orchestra ranging from synthesized woodwinds and brass to strings, pipe organ, and drums. A classical music lover, and musician from a young age, Danney sees the Baroque period of composing as a heavy influence on his music. He is inspired by all aspects of that time...

"I started playing piano at four years old, and I loved playing classical. After that, the Beatles came along, and I got heavy into drums. Then I kind of got lost in pop music. I never forgot classical music, though.

It's just something that's part of me, especially the Baroque era. The clothing, everything really fascinates me." His respect for art and the meaning of art is a testament to his experimental nature; a nature that he hopes has a positive influence on a music scene that, in a way, he sees bereft of artistic integrity. Explains Alkana, "I would like you to know that I truly mean no disrespect by playing music by some of the greatest composers the world has ever known! My intentions are to promote the Masters to a listener who may never have been exposed to classical music otherwise. For the rocker, my greatest desire and hope is that you wear out the CD, experience many hours of enjoyment, and want to hear more. If so, I will be there." Read more on Last.fm.
