Tell your mom, tell your dad, tell your siblings, tell your friends that the I Love Lake County Song Search Fan Voting is closing on April 19 at 11:59 p.m.
In this process of finding our Ultimate Grand Prize winner, we’ve witnessed an excessive amount of talent that Lake County has to offer. Many of the participants in this competition can play more than one instrument, let alone producing their own music and lyrics.
Since Scot Arcari was 12 years old, he has been carrying and/or strumming his guitar. Arcari is partially self-taught, but was also educated at the college level as a guitar player.
While growing up he took several years of guitar lessons and received professional training at Roosevelt University in Chicago. The Kildeer guitarist recently received a Master’s Certificate from Berklee College of Music in Massachusetts for song Writing and Guitar. Berklee has graduated notable musicians such as Quincy Jones, Steven Tyler, Chaka Khan and Tony Bennett to name a few.
He plans on taking more online classes at Berklee this month.
For 30 years Arcari has performed as a solo acoustic performer, lead guitarist and/or local vocalist ranging in genres from classic rock, grunge, metal and country.
Some of the Kildeer rocker’s influences are Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Angus Young and Eddie Van Halen.
You can catch Arcari playing every Wednesday in an acoustic solo set at the Edison Park Inn (Chicago) singing many different genre’s from the 1960s to present day. He also has a band called the Arcari Band.
