"Sizzling Strings" features the guitar mastery of Internationally Acclaimed Virtuoso Guitarist Bruce Mathiske with his unique style of playing bass, rhythm and melody simultaneously that has led to world wide acclaim and standing ovations.

Mathiske has been described by The Sydney Morning Herald as " The authentic guitar virtuoso !". The concert will also feature Jazz Legend George Golla . With over 120 years experience between them, this extraordinary combination of music maestros, spellbound audiences with their stringed excellence covering many styles of music from Spanish, African, Latin to Jazz to world, Gypsy, swing & groove.


Bruce Mathiske's fiery fretwork of solo guitar orchestra playing bass, rhythm & melody at once, encompassing a huge range of genres from swing to Latin, Jazz to African, Folk to flamenco, gypsy to ambient/landscape simultaneously playing didgeridoo. you will be taken on a journey with infectious rhythms and fiery fretwork from far flung corners of his guitar.

"A model demonstration of guitar virtuosity and richness of Mathiske's musical palette. Marvel at the speed of his playing on Nashville Express with its hints of country. Be amused at how, with Slipstreaming and Caribbean Daze, he could easily be a member of Jimmy Buffet's band. And, as he wanders around the region, see how effortlessly he embraces smooth Latin sounds with Havana Nights and the richness of Spain and Mexico with El Martes Gracioso. Mathiske is quite simply, a great guitar player." Bruce Elder - Sydney Morning Herald July 2007

A much admired performer for his technical mastery of the guitar his swinging style, his Latin influences and also for his musicianship, friendly easy going manner & good humour. George remains one of the major figures of Australian Jazz most notably for his partnership with Don Burrows. George has toured the world and performed with all the greats including Stephane Grappelli. He is a great inspiration to guitar players everywhere, those like Bruce who follow on & tap into George's lifetime of musical knowledge & experience & marvel at what still is a remarkable player, with a remarkable career.
