Andres specialises in flamenco guitar sounds and techniques, and also incorporates jazz, latin and popular styles into his diverse repertoire. He has extensive experience performing atmospheric background music at wedding receptions, dinners and corporate events as well as formal recitals.

Andres studied guitar at the "Conservatorio Superior de Musica Victoria Eugenia" before moving to London. Aside from performing at functions, Andres has a wide range of musical projects on the go, and he also composes his own music.

Andres has performed in prestigious London venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Sadlers Wells, Jazz Cafe and the Barbican in addition to holding residencies in the Oxo Tower, Quaglinos, Bank Restaurant and the Mandarin Oriental Hotel.

He played beautifully and the music was perfect for the occasion, providing a mellow yet stimulating background. Mike, Birthday Party, London

He’s collaborated with jazz, latin and flamenco artists including Alec Dankworth, Chris Garrick, Rafael de Utrera, Tim Garland, Jorge Bravo, Phill Robson, Nicolas Meier and Mark Lockhart.

For a more rhythmic and lively sound, Andres is able to perform as a duo alongside a percussionist specialising in flamenco, jazz and latin music, or as a trio alongside a percussionist and a bass guitarist.

“Excellent guitarist providing just the right atmosphere. My guests loved him.”

Carolyn, Ruby Wedding Anniversary Party, Petersham Hotel in Surrey, August 2019

“Andres played during our reception and was excellent!”

Oliver, Wedding, Derbyshire, August 2019

“Andres was incredible as an artist and a really lovely person. He really set the tone of our party, and played such a wonderful range of Spanish music. Many of our guests complemented him. He was really professional, calling before the event to check if we had any specific requests and we are so glad that we booked him. I would very much recommend him. Function Central were also great to work with, very timely and professional too.”

Liz, Engagement Party, Goya in London, April 2019

“Andres was one of the highlights of our wedding - he played as we made our entrance at our venue and I will never forget how magical that was. He is a very talented musician, with a fantastic repertoire of music. I would highly recommend him and will engage him again in the future.”

Sandra & Joe, Wedding at Ashridge House in Hertfordshire, August 2018

“This was the best decision we made! Having a flamenco guitarist playing during our drinks reception created the most lovely relaxed and fun atmosphere. The Andres was so calm and professional and Function Central were so easy no helpful! HIGHLY recommend!!!”
