Master Classical and Flamenco Guitarist Esteban and his daughter Teresa Joy have been performing at Sound Bites Grill in Sedona for over 3 years. As Artist in Residence, he claims the Sound Bites Celebrity Show Room to be one of his most favorite spots to perform because of the intimacy of the space.

Esteban performed many decades ago in the courtyards of Sedona’s Tlaquepaque Marketplace (An Outdoor Spanish Village) and loves Northern Arizona. It has special memories for him and his daughter. Rumor has it; they are relocating to the area this summer.

Esteban and Teresa Joy (Violinist) have been a dynamic duo and are able to feed off each other with incredible magnetism. The two perform with Raul Yanez on keys and Joe Morris on drums. The two recently spent some time in Sedona creating new music videos which will be released soon.

In this process, they have a new version of one of their biggest hits “Fuego Malaguena” and many other songs. The addition of electric guitar played by Esteban and spin-offs with instrumentations that are very cool. You will be able to hear these great new renditions in his next Sedona Concert this weekend.

Like father like daughter, Teresa Joy now plays frequently in the courtyards of Talaquepaque promoting their music, her music and the show agenda. The band will be performing Saturday, July 21st at 7 p.m. in the Sound Bites Grill Celebrity Show Room. This is a ticketed event. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for dinner and it is suggested to arrive before 6:30. Seating is by sections and tickets start at $59 per person.
