Dexter Wesley comes from good stock. Wesley's "Great!" uncle Rahsaan Roland Kirk played sax, flute and many other instruments. Known throughout the world as the inventor of, and perfecter of Circular Breathing, his innovation allows for super long continuous notes and flurries. Kirk's talent is in effect in Mr. Wesley.


Snoop Dog is also in the family tree. But, Wesley paves his own way, making a name for himself as a guitar hero for the now and the future. Indelibly inspired by the great Jimi Hendrix, Wesley writes songs that sound as though Hendrix himself arose from his slumber to pen a few dozen tasty gems.


Though Dexter Wesley & Red Hot Lava pay, in essence, tribute to the greatest guitarist and music innovator of all time, by performing select numbers from the Hendrix lexicon, strong sentiment and demand continues to grow for Wesley's vibrant original material. Since the new era of recording sessions began for Wesley in 2011, long time Wesley bassist, Myke Rock (the Red Hot Lava), helps poise the band to reach new heights in the 2020s.
