As Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa begins to mark its 30 year anniversary, and 30 years of celebrating outstanding local musicians who have performed on Center Stage Bar, formerly The Lobby Bar, there is no one who is more synonymous with his longstanding performances and the one to kick off our anniversary celebration than Esteban. Hyatt Regency Scottsdale is proud to announce The Return of ESTEBAN on Saturday, October 22, 2016. This world-famous flamenco guitarist will perform with his full band including daughter Teresa Joy, on violin, for one night. Set against the backdrop of the McDowell Mountains, the sunset concert will be held in the resort’s outdoor Fountain Court. Various pricing and seating options are available, including a pre-concert wine reception with Esteban.
Born Stephen Paul, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Esteban eyed his first guitar in a store window when he was 8 years old. His uncle bought it for him, and Esteban said “it never left my hands.” His name was given him by the legendary classical guitarist Andrés Segovia, who called him “Esteban.” He graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in Pennsylvania, furthering his musical education in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. There, he was a student of the “master,” where he took classes available to only a handful of guitarists from around the world. Over the next 5 years, Esteban played around the world with Segovia until his musical world was struck down when he was in a serious automobile accident that threatened his ability to ever play again. After 10 years, dedication and love of music he, once again, began to play.
Beginning in 1990, Esteban performed regularly at the resort’s Lobby Bar, the indoor concert venue that is well-known for featuring live entertainment 7 nights a week. Since then, he has topped the Billboards charts with numerous albums, videos and DVDs and was featured in the Wall Street Journal for his record-setting album sales on Home Shopping Network. Later, he created a musical instrument division for affordable, quality guitars to provide a greater possibility for children and adults to “play music.”
Esteban’s concerts are memorable moments of the heart, the experience exceptional and the reviews sensational.
