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.

Quintessence:
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.

Official Bio:
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.

You should have been there. Erik's musical selections appealed to every one of the guests. He has the talent from Andrés Segovia to modern rock guitar geniuses. When he demonstrated his extraordinary guitar playing, often guests moved closer to him to observe his skillful, rapid fretting and beautiful music. The reaction of multiple guests were in awe and his ability is one of the memorable events that put this wedding celebration "over the top".
