Roland Balogh just received his Benedetto Bravo Deluxe, so he officially joins the ranks of our Ambassadors! Roland is a rising (or should we say shooting?) star, sweeping jazz guitar competitions from all over for years!
Roland’s latest success in his career was achieved in 2016 by winning the 1st place like the grand prize winner at the Six String Theory Jazz Guitar competition in Los Angeles. The members of the jury were among the greatest jazz guitarists of the world such as Pat Martino, John Scofield, Mike Stern, Lee Ritenour and Nir Felder.
Headed back to Savannah from Anaheim where we just wrapped up the 2017 NAMM Show! Shared time and music with Jody Espina at his Jody Jazz booth, Jim Fox, Luca di Luzio, and Dave Miner, among many others!
Benedetto Artist Howard Alden, who recently celebrated his 25th year with us, shared the stage with Anat Cohen as part of the 2017 Tucson Jazz Festival. Sublime musicianship!
Thanks to Denny Schreffler for the photo!
