Points North is a California-based rock band consisting of guitarist Eric Barnett, bassist Uriah Duffy and drummer Kevin Aiello. The band has released two studio albums and is known for its high-energy shows.[1] The band also does gigs as their alter ego Fred Barchetta in tribute to the band Rush adding Darby Gould (formerly of Jefferson Starship) on vocals.[2]

Band members[edit]

Barnett was a finalist in the 2008 Guitar Superstar competition.[3] He has also contributed tips to instrumental guitarists in Guitar Player magazine[4] and has contributed music to video games.[5] Duffy may be best known for bringing a fresh injection of talent to the band Whitesnake[6][7] between 2006 and 2010. He joined Points North shortly after their first CD was released.[8][9]
