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.

“We were extremely satisfied with Andres and his recommended support singer. Their performance was outstanding. We could not have asked for better musicians to make my husband's birthday such a memorable event. Andres is a brilliant guitarist - and the singer had such a beautiful voice. The selection of music was perfect - everything I requested - their interpretation was excellent. They paced the sessions perfectly so that by the last session, everyone was dancing. Our friends also commented about the superb quality of the entertainment. Andres and the singer were on time and were very flexible with regard to setting up for their performance. I would highly recommend them for any event and would definitely like to hear them again.”

“Andres and his band have worked for us at two of our restaurants in the city on a weekly basis since January 2007. We have been extremely impressed by their professionalism and the quality of the music they perform. We've found them to be punctual, accommodating and very flexible (working short notice gigs when required). Feedback from our clients has been overwhelmingly positive and enthusiastic and we would have no hesitation in recommending this band to anyone.”
