John Parker - Spanish Guitarist

This Bristol Spanish guitarist is able to provide a huge variety of music including traditional flamenco, classic pop and rock, traditional European classical music and classical guitar solos composed by Spanish and South American composers. His vibrant and expressive playing creates an exotic and romantic atmosphere to suit weddings, functions and events.

With 20 years of performance experience this guitarist is effortlessly comfortable when providing background entertainment and his extensive knowledge of a varied repertoire (which ranges from foot tapping flamenco trickery to sensual classical pieces with a South American edge) means he is more than capable of adapting his set to meet the requirements of any event.

He is available in the South West, the Midlands and Wales and is always very well presented, polite and punctual. He is also happy to learn pieces on request with due notice.

He played at our wedding reception. He played a lovely selection of pieces that were greatly appreciated by me, my wife and our guests. He was very friendly and helpful both in discussing our requirements beforehand and on the day. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

John Vasey, Backwell House Hotel, Bristol

First and foremost, his playing abilities were great as many of our family also play guitars I was keen to have someone accomplished. He played at my birthday party in a nice hotel alongside afternoon tea and many guests said how lovely it was. I would book him again. He was helpful, answered emails on time, was pleasant and I am thinking about when I can have another party so I can get him to come and play!
