Guitar virtuoso Laurence Juber of the bygone Wings will put on a totally acoustic performance at Havana on Thursday, May 29, and it’s one you may not want to miss. Here’s why: Juber was a noted studio guitarist before he was selected by Paul McCartney to play lead guitar with Wings, and he’s had an amazingly productive musical career since then.

After Wings folded in 1981, Juber relocated to the US and established himself as a studio musician. While raising a family in Los Angeles, he performed on the soundtracks to hundreds of TV shows and movies, including “Home Improvement” and “Seventh Heaven.” He can be heard on the scores to academy award-winning movies Dirty Dancing, Pocahontas and Good Will Hunting, as well as many hit records.

At the same time he embarked on a career as a solo recording artist, concert performer composer and arranger, soon developing a reputation as a world-class solo guitar virtuoso, and being voted #1 by Fingerstyle Guitar magazine.

During the upcoming Havana show, Juber will perform some of his standout originals, as well as songs from the Beatles, Wings, Hendrix, and even the Great American Songbook.

After the show, he’ll sign and talk about his just-released book “Guitar With Wings: A Photographic Memoir” which documents Juber’s time with Wings.

Juber also said in a recent interview that he encourages all parents and guardians to “bring any children who play guitar, especially teens and young guitarists, to check out the show and to chat with me at the meet-n-greet after the show.”

Tickets can be purchased online anytime at ComcastTIX, or by calling Havana at
215-862-5501; first-come, first-reserved. Doors at 6 p.m.; show at 8 p.m. Havana New Hope is located at 105 S. Main St.
