Spanish Flamenco Guitarist For Tapas Event

Spanish Flamenco Guitarist for your Spanish Tapas Night

In this article I explain my work as a flamenco guitarist for tapas night.

Please do feel free to get in touch by e mail or phone to discuss your tapas night plans.

I often play for tapas nights and paella events throughout Britain.

Although I have experience, I do of course understand that you have your own plans.
Therefore, I can plan my playing to fit around your timetable. 
It is not uncommon for musicians to have fixed sets and fees but I find that inflexible.
I prefer to talk with you and plan the best Spanish guitar for your tapas event.

Lovely feedback about my guitar playing

Thank you for playing your Spanish flamenco guitar for our Tapas Night.
Several customers said the fact that you play high standard but also fun completed the evening.

Flamenco guitar music for tapas night

I offer a recital of passionate flamenco pieces contrasted with more gentle Spanish classical pieces.

Naturally I plan this in accordance with your musical preferences.

I frequently play for tapas and paella events all over Britain and am very happy to discuss each specific event with each client.
This is because venues will naturally have their own about how they would like the event to proceed.

You may expect customers to arrive before food is served.
That might be the ideal moment for some gentle atmospheric music.
Perhaps some of the better known Spanish classical pieces.

As your customers are seated and you start to bring out the dishes, I can offer some more exciting pieces.
These may be flamenco rather than classical.

Once again, it is very important not to over- power the room with too loud playing.
On this subject it may well best if I play without amplification.

Should amplification be necessary I will always have it with me.
I will carefully set the volume to just right, changing this as needed.

My experience of playing flamenco guitar at tapas nights

I can offer suggestions if that is helpful.

Spanish tapas nights and even lunches are very popular in Britain.

Perhaps 10 years ago a venue might put on a Spanish night once every few years.
Now I am receiving enquiries for these types of event every month.
People in Britain are increasingly knowledgeable about Spanish cuisine.
They have enjoyed authentic Spanish food quite often in non- touristic areas of Spain and they want to find the same quality here in Britain.

Likewise, people are far more familiar with flamenco guitar music and attentive to the playing.
This is a situation that I very much welcome.

Authentic Spanish music for your tapas night

A flamenco guitarist for a tapas night is in fact very traditional in Spain.

At the end of the 19th Century flamenco guitarists were typically hired to accompany food tasting and dining events?
The producers of Jamon Serrano and wines felt that a flamenco guitarist would help the event.

Flamenco guitarist videos

The sound clips and videos on this website give non exhaustive examples of my flamenco guitar music.
I also play some very lovely Spanish classical pieces which I can include at your event.

Please let me know if you have any preferences.
I can ensure that I play the pieces of Spanish Flamenco and Classical music that you prefer.

The Classical pieces often offer a welcome gentle contrast to the more energetic Flamenco pieces.
I can provide genuine real flamenco for your event.

Right here in Britain you can provide a little of the atmosphere of traditional Andalucía.

Please do feel free to just call to discuss your requirements or email in you prefer.
