Two time Grammy winner Laurence Juber takes the stage at OTCA on Friday, October 14 at 7:30 pm. He was voted Guitarist of the Year by the readers of Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine and named one of the top acoustic guitar players of all time by Acoustic Guitar Magazine. As the former lead guitarist for Paul McCartney's Wings, Laurence is uniquely qualified to arrange Beatles songs, which he has done to perfection. Juber will feature some of these best-loved melodies from his award winning LJ Plays the Beatles during his concert on October 14th.


Laurence Juber is a world-class guitar virtuoso solo artist, composer and arranger. Fusing folk, jazz, pop and classical styles, he creates a multi-faceted performance that belies the use of only one instrument.  He has released 19 albums, including Guitarist and PCH. His LJ Plays The Beatles is one of Acoustic Guitar Magazine's all-time Top Ten acoustic albums.

Chances are you’ve heard Laurence, even if you didn’t know it. His guitar playing is heard on albums, TV shows, commercials and even video games.  His arrangement of Stand By Me was heard nationally in the Diamonds Are Forever commercial.  His solo rendition of The Pink Panther Theme is featured on the GRAMMY® winning album Henry Mancini-Pink Guitar

Of his recent releases, Wooden Horses showcases LJ's compositions for solo guitar, while LJ Plays The Beatles Volume 2  is a tour-de-force of pop song arranging. As a studio musician, he can be heard on recent albums from artists as diverse as Dan Hicks & the Hot Licks and Barry Manilow, plus he is featured on the soundtracks to hundreds of TV shows and movies, including the academy award-winning Good Will Hunting.

Juber has also co-composed the soundtrack of the upcoming Blizzard Entertainment video game Diablo 3 and crafted the score to the NBC Dateline documentary Children Of The Harvest, showcased on his latest CD release. His music is also featured in the Ken Burns documentary The Tenth Inning.

“Laurence is a guitarist who transcends technique,” OTCA Co-Director William Eaton remarked, “his song arrangements draw you inside the music. The guitar just happens to be the instrument on which he expresses his remarkable musicianship. Each song is a journey.”




the notes spin out of the songs with such finesse and musical agility, it's hard to believe he has only 10 fingers and six strings.

San Francisco Chronicle

Laurence Juber has redefined solo acoustic guitar playing.


Juber is a master of acoustic finger style, but with less of the trick-guitar mishmash that seems obligatory among the high octane pickers. He has a fluid style that shifts gears through simultaneous jazzy chording, leads, and bass lines, while weaving in and out of musical thoughts faster than a Formula One racer.

San Diego Reader

At the heart of LJ's sound and style breathes a near-flawless technique where a fiercely emotional underbelly, alternate tunings, and keen sense of melody and rhythm coalesce into something uniquely his own..you don't have to be a solo-happy guitar worshipper to appreciate his talents.
