I am a professional guitarist, with over 10 years of experience as a performing and recording artist, with well rounded musical and Ivy League education, including extensive studies in Spain under the tutelage of the great guitar master Gerardo Núñez and performances at the premiere venues of Scottsdale and Metro Phoenix.

My expertise includes live music and entertainment for: private events and corporate events, weddings, ceremonies, background music, cocktail hours, restaurants, resorts, casinos, anniversaries, festivals, and concert venues.

My repertoire exceeds 8 hours, spanning 5 genres, including beautiful guitar originals and covers in: Traditional and Modern Spanish/Flamenco, Nuevo Flamenco, Brazilian, Jazz, Latin, Pop, and Classic Rock, on both acoustic and electric guitar. I can perform solo, as well as enhance my music with custom-created backing tracks, arranged meticulously in my studio. I also provide state-of-the-art sound and professional lighting to fit any size of event. I have signature collections of repertoire - "Spanish Nights in the Desert," Acoustic Fusion," "Sonoran Wind" and more, to provide a distinctive ambiance to the event. Expect impeccable guitar playing, excellent sound, and the utmost professionalism. Should you choose to hire me, you're getting one of the most experienced musicians in the state.

My music is influenced by Al Di Meola, Paco de Lucia, George Benson, Santana, Eric Clapton, Ottmar Liebert, Jesse Cook, Gipsy Kings, Alex Fox, The Beatles, The Eagles, Kansas. See a partial list of the songs I perform with over 100 examples. Listen to the sample music on my page, which I personally performed and recorded. The songs on my recent CD VIAJES have been produced and recorded at Saltmine Studios in Arizona, one of the most prestigious recording studios in the US. I play both the lead and the rhythm guitar together with some of the finest musicians in Arizona.

Alex was absolutely amazing! He created the most beautiful atmosphere for our wedding ceremony. He is truly a professional. Alex was great with communication from day one. Any question or request I had was promptly answered. We are so happy to have had him be a part of our wedding. He even learned two new songs for us...we are big Game of Thrones fan (so we requested the theme song and Hands of Gold). He was nothing short of INCREDIBLE! We are so grateful to have worked with this amazing artist. He is so talented and very kind!

Dear Tabatha, Thank you for your kind words! Thank you for trusting me and my music for your very special event - your wedding! I enjoyed learning and performing the Game of Thrones tunes! In fact, I thank you for asking me for that! Now many more people enjoy listening to those tunes when I perform live. I would strum my guitar for you and your party any time you ask me! Best Regards, Alex Hristov

Alex communicated quickly and efficiently before the event and was flawless at the event. Guests and hosts alike raved over his "sharp" performance. Highly recommend him for any events as he can offer quite a range of musical selections.
