Following on from our successful last event, we are now happy to present our second Instrumental Night at Apples & Pears Bar!

We invite you to an evening of no gimmicks and no vocals, but instead a showcase of incredible guitarists!

East London is lacking in great, welcoming places for instrumentalists to show off their talents to an all ears audience, so we decided to create that exact environment!

This month we bring you the following incredible line up!

Ivan Melo
Born and bread in Brazil, he grew up listening to Motown and British Rock bands from the sixties and seventies. Attracted to highly technical playing from the start of his musical journey, he navigated through rock, jazz, Brazilian music and fusion.

Ivan moved to London four years ago, where he did his music degree. His versatility took him to perform at the stages of the Paralympics 2012, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Richmond Theatre and many other prestigious venues. Ivan is constantly working closely to songwriters as a guitarist and as a songwriter himself. Ivan has performed alongside musicians from Erika Baduh, Jethro Tull, Joe Cocker, Iron Maiden and he has also written and performed with Grammy Award winners Snarky Puppy.

Most recently, the guitarist has been devoting himself to composing material for his upcoming instrumental album (blending rock and Brazilian music) , co-writing with upcoming songwriters and performing with the genre-hopping group Hans Prya.

Ivan is a in-demand guitar coach.
