Verified profile

I am a UK-based professional guitarist and I have been playing more than 18 years. I host a YT popular channel, The Spanish Guitar Hub, which has received millions of views and attracted more then 50k subscribers, I am also the author of the guitar teaching book: Spanish Guitar Strumming Techniques, and endorsed by GuitarPro software. I have a mixed style of Spanish guitar, flamenco and mariachi, and performing many years publicly and privately as well. I have played solo sets for Shard and Birmingham University among others. I am happy to tailor my setlist depends on what athmosphere you would like for your wedding/party. I can play more movie soundtracks, or even more mariachi/flamenco oriented.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

Please let me know as soon as possible and I will do my best to adjust to your event do it will run as smooth as possible.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

I can play music before and in between the sets from my iPod, no problem. This service is without any extra charge.

How much time do you need to set up?

My set-up is very easy. If you need me to go with a PA it takes 15 minutes. With amplifier it is 5 minutes.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Please feel free to do that!

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes I am completely self-sufficient, so hassle for you!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Depends on the song, and how far away your event. Since I play instrumental music it can take time to arrange and learn a song. But in any case I will have a look at your song and let you know if that’s possible.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My guitar playing can be very relaxing in the background and put people into a better mood.

I do about 100-150 performances a year as a solo and with my bands so I played in many venues. Last year as a solo I performed in the Shard, Birmingham Town hall, and Cambridge University.
