Vlasis, who hails from Minneapolis, started his musical career playing guitar as a teenager. The son of Greek immigrants, Vlasis is an accomplished musician and songwriter. His guitar work is electric even when unplugged. Winding out on his Mossman is special to him as well as playing keyboards, but admits that drumming out is still his favorite pastime. Vlasis has performed in front of thousands of fans all over the country as a solo act as well as the lead guitarist for the art-rock group Blue Canoe and the very popular Native American band, Brule´.

Vlasis has also enjoyed interacting on a smaller stage as a special guest for several puplic schools, jamming with and inspiring children in special needs classrooms and also for elementary and high school kids.
Vlasis has just released his second instrumental cd entitled White Dog, and in Early 2007 will be touring and performing songs from this new cd, and from his first cd, Plain Sight.
