"Spiros S. high energy and versatility with the strings makes him a dangerous man." -- Blues Revue “Spiros S.may well be the finest indie blues guitarist in Europe. His soulful guitar playing weaves right into the heart with evocative golden tone. Truly a consumer artist” -Keith Schwartz A consummate performer, Spiros S. regularly played at the late, great B.B. King Blues Club, the place for live blues in Manhattan. With his eponymous power trio, or as a solo opener for many other artists, including Robert Randolph and Popa Chubby, he played right to the end, performing at the iconic club`s closing night, April 29, 2018, for a blues-fuelled finale. His electric and acoustic tributes to some of his favorite slingers - Eric Clapton, Robin Trower and Johnny Winter - are big hits in NYC`s premier clubs such as Cafe Wha?, The Groove and Bonafide. Spiros returns to his earliest musical roots at his popular Greek Music Nights which he hosts and performs at the New York Open Center with an array of musicians playing traditional instruments. A dedicated teacher, Spiros has a large number of private students, some of whom are invited to participate in his master jam sessions at his private Manhattan studio.

Spiros is very relatable. He always has answers for my many questions. I look forward to each lesson with him.
I started playing the ukulele as a beginner, and Spiros has guided me through a wide array of techniques and styles to feel comfortable with the instrument. He is very communicative and reacts to my skillset and interest, helping me develop in the ways that I want to. He always approaches teaching with kindness and exploration. I have had a wonderful time learning from him and would recommend his lessons to anyone. I feel like a halfway competent musician now, and I have him to thank for that
Spiros is an awesome instructor. He's helped me with both bass and guitar tremendously. If you're looking for someone to help you get up to speed quickly, Spiros is your guy.
