G&L Guitars News: Alex Barreto Brings Passion For Playing To G&L

Alex Barreto Brings Passion For Playing To G&L

Like a lot of the G&L family, builder Alex Barreto is no stranger to the stage. Alex recently joined Excel, a punk/metal fusion outfit with three studio albums and two live albums under their belt, for their recent revival of the band. The much anticipated show took place on March 30 at the Hollywood RVCA store, and was the bands first L.A. performance in 15 years. Needless to say, the place was packed, and Alex powered the bands high-energy performance with his G&L ASAT Deluxe. For more information about Excel, visit facebook.com/ExcelOfficial.

But there's more! Form 2006 to 2008, Alex held down the low-end for Alien Ant Farm. The alternative rock bands cover of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal" was a #1 single in Australia and New Zealand, a #3 single in the UK, and hit #1 on the US Modern Rock charts. The video below is from the bands 2009 performance of "What I Feel Is Mine" on NBC's Last Call with Carson Daly.

We are thrilled that Alex is part of the G&L family and are excited to know that he carries his passion for playing into a passion for building G&L instruments every day.
