OMAR LOPEZ is earning a reputation as the Jean-Luc Ponty of this millennium for his explosive style and refined technique on the violin. A true entertainer with a passion for the stage, Omar combines his classical training with rock, Latin-jazz, dance, electronica, and world music to create a unique and inspired sound. Moreover, his soulful and uninhibited vocals are reminiscent of pop and R&B greats like George Michael and Stevie Wonder, with a Spanish-language suave comparable to that of Latin stars such as Luis Miguel and Enrique Iglesias. Omar recently began touring with Emmy Award-winning Spanish flamenco guitarist BENISE, beginning with a three-week engagement at Lebanon's famous and luxurious Casino du Liban. He has also opened for Latin superstar Jose Feliciano, Broadway legend Jennifer Holliday, and rock icon Pat Benatar. In his hometown of Austin, Texas, Omar was voted one of the Top Ten String Musicians for seven years in a row, and he performed extensively with Austin's Latin-jazz and salsa sensation THE BREW before releasing two solo albums of original music - "FOREVER RED" (2005) and "EXPERIENCE" (2007) - and plans to release his third, "MIRRORS AND MEMORIES", in 2010. His own band mirrors his musical versatility with their own respective abilities as performers and musicians. Read more on Last.fm.
