Nick Cross, flamenco guitarist Chester, is the ideal musician to appear for the wedding guests at a wedding drinks reception in the North West. His playing creates the perfect ambience and atmosphere for this very special day. He tries to do this with his music from the moment the wedding guests are seated up till the time when bride and groom begin walking down the aisle – carrying on the musical moments right up to the drinks reception and maybe beyond.
Guitar playing is perfect for restaurant settings where people can chat and relax while music plays in the background. Corporate events are again a speciality and he knows how much effort and organisation goes into an event.
Nick Cross can cater for a wide variety of occasions and audiences from formal black tie occasions to lower budget occasions when requested. Music is a vital ingredient when setting up any of the above events and this flamenco guitarist, with his unique and diverse style of playing, cannot be replicated by any CD or other audio device.
A flamenco guitar is a guitar similar to a classical guitar but with thinner tops and less internal bracing. It is used in toque, the guitar-playing part of the art of flamenco.Traditionally, luthiers made guitars to sell at a wide ranges of prices, largely based on the materials used and the amount of decorations, to cater to the popularity of the instrument across all classes of people in Spain. The cheapest guitars were often simple, basic instruments made from the less expensive woods such as cypress. Antonio de Torres, one of the most renowned luthiers, did not differentiate between flamenco and classical guitars. Only after Andrés Segovia and others popularised classical guitar music, did this distinction emerge. (Wikipedia)
