Category Archives: Bone Island Music Key West Crew

“Bone Island” Music – “Bone Island” or the original Spanish name “Cayo Hueso” (Bone Island) was the original name of Key West BEFORE English speaking settlers came into the picture when the name then began to change from being pronounced “Cayo Hueso”, to eventually being pronounced “Key West” – So Bone Island Music – Cayo Hueso Musica – or Key West Music – you get it right? So we like to call all of our friends, musicians, clubs, conch rockers and music loving fans the “Bone Island Music Crew”

Hi it’s Wayne Sorbelli here from Island Guitar music store down here in Key West Florida. So far so good in the keys. No corona virus cases yet as of the time I post this that we know about. We are closed to any walk-in business. We are taking phone orders in which you can pay over the phone then i can walk the musical gear and supplies out the front door to your car or bike. This system had served us very well the last few days as we’ve been able to place instruments in the hands of many smart people and their children.

In the months coming we will all be stuck inside. It’ll be a better sentencing if we have an instrument in our hands and at our disposal and are signed up for some 1-one-1 FaceTime, Skype or Zoom lessons with me, or one of our teachers.

Call 305-414-8056 pls leave a voice message if we can’t answer it means we are probably giving a lesson and will return call to you ASAP as we may be teaching.

The Electric Guitar- the holy grail of sonic expression. Before heading into the lesson studio in Key West I set up this Gibson Les Paul and,,,

Before I start teaching guitar and ukulele lessons today at my music store in Key West, I came in early to change the strings and do an action set-up on this USA GIBSON LES PAUL electric guitar. This is one of my favorite type of guitars of all time. It’s as iconic and epic as the rock & blues hero’s of mine that played them – like Jimmy Page, Freddie King, Johnny Winter, Keith Richards, Joe Walsh (who gave Jimmy Page his first Les Paul), Jeff Beck, Slash, Joe Perry, Zak Wylde, Billy Gibbons, Bob Marley, Peter Frampton, Duane Allman, Dicky Betts, Warren Haynes, Eric Clapton, and many more.

I put on a set Ernie Ball Super Slinky Electric Guitar Strings better know as a “pack of pinks” and tuned it to standard tuning. Lower the action down to a mere breeze. The pick up height needed to be adjusted. The neck pickup was much louder than the bridge pickup. Now it’s set where I like it a little hotter on the bridge pickup than at the neck or middle.

Mmmmmmmmmm time to go plug in and play it for a while – then head into the lesson studio and tell my students about these awesome guitars and people who play them ALL while learning music theory and applying it to the instrument – the holy grail of sonic expression – THE GUITAR.

Have a great day!!

Christmas Rocks! band at the Key West Theater was a rocking fun & great time for all!!

Afterwards talking with the band, we agreed that we all had such an amazing fun time and felt the spirit of Christmas around us the entire night! It was true Christmas Magic from first note until the curtains closed.

With an eclectic pool of musicians drawing from distant corners of the musical universe, puddling together as the Christmas Rocks Band! – each bringing an almost comic book style super power to our not so round, more “Key West Oblong” shaped table laying the soundtrack for a fun mix of super rock classic hits & legendary Christmas & holiday favorites.
