Federico and the Breeze is a Folk, Americana, and Roots band that performs original material along with songs by legendary artists, such as Mark Knopfler, Eric Clapton, John Mellencamp, John Hiatt, JJ Cale, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Steve Winwood, Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, & Tom Petty.
As a self-proclaimed tunesmith, Federico first builds songs with poignant lyrics, accompanied by his trusty acoustic guitar. Once the melody is settled, he then turned to fellow band mate Matthew Kloosterman to add subtle, yet impactful harmonies on the electric guitar. Afterwards, award-winning percussionist Fabio Pirozzolo is called in to create emphatic rythyms with the cajon. Together, Federico and the Breeze has a beautiful and full sound, performing their traditional genres, but with a creative groove and lot of acoustic finger-picking.
FEDERICO AND THE BREEZE
Federico recognizes the political turmoil that many countries face. Some of their original songs shed light on issues like immigration and the like. Here, he sings about the life of an illegal immigrant in his song, "Rigoberto Mendez".

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Blackstone Valley String Quartet did a wonderful job at our wedding. They are professionally adept at their performance, and brought joy to my guests. They were also experienced and knew to pace with the events of the ceremony. Their list of available pieces is extensive, and if you hire them, you will find yourself in very good hands.
