Christian Colabelli has been playing guitar since the age of 13. From the moment he picked up the instrument he knew that the desire to continually progress and learn every minute aspect of the guitar would be unquenchable.
Christian studied at the acclaimed Berklee College of music and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Professional Music (concentration in Performance). While in attendance there he studied with world renowed guitarists, Mark White, Joe Stump, and Richie Hart and was a three time member of Mark White’s advanced performing guitar ensemble, “The Eklektic Elektriks.”
He is comfortable playing a wide range of styles, including, country, jazz, fusion, rock, and metal. He has played/recorded with famed drummer Rakalam Bob Moses (Pat Metheny, Gary Burton), Hayden Smith, George Massenburg, The JT Project, and Nathan Webb (Kenny Garrett) among others, and played guitar for the Halcats on Holland America Cruise ships, the Westerdam and the Veendam.
