Stavros Blicas Stavros, a native of Greece, first discovered the guitar on the streets of Athens. The street musicians inspired him with a love of his country’s rich musical heritage. At the age of 11 he got his first guitar and started learning from the Athenians. When he moved to the United States at the age of 14, he expanded his repertoire to include such native American music as Blues, Rock and Funk. He studied musical theory in college, and expanded his range of abilities to include the electric guitar, the classical guitar, the bouzouki, and the bass. He has played in several rock and blues bands over the years in and around Baltimore, a hotbed of live music. With this experience, Stavros provides the foundation for Zephyros’ American Music play list at weddings, parties and other private events.
