About the Band:
James Gabriano Acoustic Guitar
Guitarist and composer James Gabriano plays his instrument with the intensity of a Texas August afternoon. The Latin rhythms and fiery guitar make you want to get up, stomp your heels, and click your castanets. Just catch his rendition of "Bambaleo" by the Gipsy Kings and you will feel the meaning.
For over the past 25 years James has performed thousands of private events such as corporate parties, weddings, grand openings, birthdays, Jazz festivals and Christmas parties. He performs solo, but also works with other amazing musicians in duo, trio, and quartet.
James has had the privilege to open for: Ottmar Liebert, Larry Carlton, Chuck Mangione, Keiko Matsui, Gino Vannelli and David Benoit to name a few.
James has performed for: Aretha Franklin, Kenny G, George Lopez, Lisa Loeb, Ross Perot, Norman Brinker, Jerry Jones, Roger Staubach, Mike Modano and Tony Romo.
