Three accomplished Keys guitarists — each with a unique style of play — will again join together for the Florida Keys Guitar Summit to showcase their skills individually, in duos and trios. In its third year, the concerts highlight master guitarists and their varied Keys- influenced musical styles. Last year, the Guitar Summit played to sold out venues and received standing ovations for their exciting improvisations.
“Our theme this year — A Fusion of Master Guitarists – accurately describes what is in store for concert attendees,” said Mateo, who in addition to performing is also the founder of the Florida Keys Guitar Festival Summit series. “Like great individual vocalists who sing together to create new harmonies, our guitarists will reward the listeners with engaging new sounds from their established styles.”
National Public Radio said “David Feder has a magic way of making you feel like an old friend with songs that are original and intimate.” Jimmy Buffet introduced Feder at recent performance in the Keys saying: “You have a Florida Treasure in your midst…please welcome the great Dave Feder.”
Classical guitarist Mateo is a world-renowned composer and soloist who has performed with the Yehudi Menuhin Concerts and has been a Florida Artist-in-Residence. He is known for producing and performing in concerts all over the Florida Keys.
Rolando Rojas is a famed Latin guitarist who is not only a household name in the Florida Keys music scene, but has played with musicians such as Gloria Estefan. Graduating from the Izidor Handler Conservatory of Music in Vina Del Mar, Chile, Rojas is a multifaceted instrumentalist who is well-versed in composing and performing many different genres.
This year, Belle has been singing with the Fabulous Spectrelles. Her expressive and lyric vocal style was a hit with the audience at the Guitar Summit Benefit Concert for the Marathon Community Theater in January (which raised funds for the new theater marquee).
In addition, the Florida Keys Guitar Festival has merged with ICE…cool entertainment (Islamorada Community Entertainment), drawing upon its expertise in producing music festivals and concerts for the past 23 years. Together, they will continue provide the best in world class guitar concerts for residents and visitors to the Florida Keys.
