This is the 2nd year that Erik has performed at our event, and we will invite him back again for a 3rd. He arrived early and played for almost 4 hours. Latin Jazz set - perfect background ambience for a catered outdoor cocktail gathering of 200 guests. Positive feedback from everyone who attended. I look forward to hiring Erik again for another event
Erik played his music beautifully. Everyone at the event loved it. It was background music and still everyone noticed how well he played. The only thing I would suggest he dress a little more professional for an event like ours.
Erik filled in at our Venue with about 4 hours notice, when we had a mix-up with our scheduled performer. He did a great job and really saved the evening! If you need a guitarist to cover classical, jazz, rock or contemporary music, I would definitely recommend Erik!
What makes an excellent party are good food, the right guests and fabulous music!
We had all three! Our guitarist Eric was sensational!
The next day all guest texted me for his contact info. That says it all to me.
We have thrown many dinner parties. This surprise 60th party of 14 guests in Atlanta were in awe over Eric's music.
We enjoyed the music with out signing. It added a nice background elegance to the atmosphere.
He brought his own equipment and the volumn was perfect for our backyard.
We will be flying him to Boston next summer. HE'S THAT GOOD!
He learned and played some of my classic country requests! We were thrilled.
He made the party!
His music was exactly like his website.

What to Expect
If you are looking for live music performed on a highest professional level, please contact me. I am a professional, reliable musician with many years of performing experience who play in a variety of styles. I will create a great atmosphere of your event for any occasion.
Professional composer and guitarist, who writes and performs music in a variety of styles: Classical, Flamenco, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Fusion, Folk, Blues, etc., as well as combination of styles using different types of guitar.
A music scholar, professional composer and performer come from a multi-ethnic background. I always experiments with variety of styles, looking for a new sound and ways to show what guitar is capable of.
I started my music career in the late 70's. I studied, taught music and performed for a variety of audiences in Europe, Scandinavia and Russia. I performed solo concerts and as part of a band.
When I immigrated to the U.S. in 1997, I started my life and music career from scratch. Surviving in a new environment I beat the odds and managed to have solo concert tours on the East and the West Coasts, as well as the Nation-wide tour, and signed a contract with MTV.
I performed on such legendary stages as CB's Gallery in New York City and Celebrity Center International in Hollywood, CA. I have been invited to give radio interviews in New York and Massachusetts, including a two-hour show dedicated entirely to my works. My music in the album "Spanish Image" was selected for "All Songs Considered" on National Public Radio-NPR.
Now I perform as solo musician and as One-Man-Orchestra, give private lessons and teach in schools.
