Stef Burns and Friends

Stef Burns is returning to Vino Godfather this summer with Jeff Campitelli and Jim Funk plus some very special guests. Last year the special guest line-up was a who’s who of bay area celebrities and his show sold out quickly. We are excited to have him back at Vino Godfather for another afternoon of killer rock and roll!

In 1982, Stef got a job with Jesse Colin Young, formerly of the Youngbloods. They toured America for about a year and that led to a job with Pablo Cruise in 1983. He did one album with them called “Out Of Our Hands” and a US tour. Then came Sheila E. It was 1984/85 and time for a little transformation, complete with blonde hair, shiny costumes and dance steps for days. For two years he played the Prince produced funk across America, Japan and Europe. Stef played on two Sheila E. albums: “Romance 1600” and “Sheila E.”. Also, two B-sides: “Too Sexy”, which he co-wrote, and “Save the People”. In 1986/87, Stef played with Berlin and toured again through America, Japan and Europe while they had the hit “Take My Breath Away” from the film “Top Gun”. In 1988, he toured with Michael Bolton. In this band there was Jonathon Cain on keyboards and Ross Valory on bass from Journey. In 1989 Stef joined Y&T and recorded 4 albums with them: “Ten”,”Yesterday and Today Live”, “Musically Incorrect” and “Endangered Species”. 1991, he got a call from Alice Cooper, who was looking for a guitarist for his new album. Stef played on “Hey Stoopid” and “The Last Temptation”. In 2004 Stef joined Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and Robert Fripp to jam on a couple songs at the G3 concert in Rome, Italy. Stef continues to tour all over Italy and always puts on a great show when he visits the US.

Special Guests: Johnny Colla, Bill Gibson, Jeff Watson, and more to come!
