The Hungarian-born guitar virtuoso Gyorgy Lakatos is hailed as one of the fastest guitar players in the world. He is joined by two guitarists from Jose Feliciano's band now touring with Gypsy Heart. Their charismatic music is a cultural blend of Gypsy, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Rumba, Spanish, & Pop. This show will be powerful and passionate, smooth and sophisticated. Gyorgy has performed, written, and recorded with Jose Feliciano, Bruce Springsteen & Clarence Clemons. Having traveled throughout the world, he now resides in Florida and is making a name for himself in the United States.

 Gyorgy is the fifth generation in a long line of world-renown musicians and he carries on this musical tradition, whether touring with a 3-piece band or a full orchestra. Gyorgy is also an accomplished player of the Cimbalom, a century's old, large stringed dulcimer-type instrument popularized in Hungary that takes skill and years of study - and Gyorgy makes it look easy. He is currently recording his debut album on the iconic Cimbalom. His latest CD, Guitar Bomb, features a song written by the late Clarence "Big Man" Clemons from the E-Street Band; previous CDs include Gypsy Fire and Romance.

 Gypsy Heart will be touring Europe this summer and will perform at Miami's Adrienne Arsht center in December and the Kravis Center in Palm Beach in February.
