Alex Skolnick Trio
Alex Skolnick Trio is:
• Alex Skolnick - Guitars and Vocals
• Nathan Peck - Double-bass and Vocals
• Matt Zebroski - Drums and Vocals


The Alex Skolnick Trio was born in 2001. A heavy metal guitar hero with the San Francisco based group Testament, Alex had decided to leave the Bay Area, move to New York, soak up the jazz scene and go back to school to earn his music degree from New School University. It was here that he met a young drum prodigy named Matt 'Zebar' Zebroski who, as it turned out, had been a Testament fan as a youth in Pittsburgh.

The two began rehearsing regularly, practicing standards and reviewing homework assignments. Within a few months, they hit upon a magic formula: songs of their youth, reharmonized and revamped to incorporate high level modern improvisation. A short time later, the trio had versions of Kiss, Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, the Who and more, as well as original compositions and were covering a wide range of musical styles: swing, funk, Latin and moments of John McLaughlin/Jimi Hendrix/Miles Davis inspired intensity.
