I have known Edwin Masters for over 10 years now. In that time I hired him to perform, compose, and be the lead Director/Coordinator of music ensembles for many of the events I produced.

There are several reasons why I keep working with Edwin, the first and foremost being that his talent is superior (although his humble nature wont admit his tremendous talent, not even after appearing at the House of Blues).

His life IS music, he has trained with the best of the best and lives by the code of the guitar. As a percussionist he channels the drum gods, to watch him perform and get lost in his music is an art in itself.

Needless to say, many of the attendees at my events have requested him for their personal shindigs. He maintains a low profile with an effective word-of-mouth and “by-recommendation only” career.

Another reason I like working with Edwin is his professionalism. He is always on time, he always pulls through, even at the most random requests with limited timelines. I know, I have asked him in the past for a “Tabla” and Guitar performance (with a one week’s notice). Low and behold, I got concert I had envisioned for the opening of my gallery at Space 4 Art.

There are family reasons that keep Edwin stationed in San Diego. Mark my words, one of these days this man is going to venture to L.A., Miami and/or Nashville and he’s going to make it, and make it BIG. My best advice to those reading this recommendation, it to book him now while he’s still affordable!

A Private Viewing of an Original Hologram by the Artist Salvador Dali
and Co-Creator/Holographer Selwyn Lissack

This was the first time that the Salvador Dali Hologram was shown to a public audience since its creation. The hologram is privately owned and priced at $1 Million USD.

This presentation was for the Museum Directors and Committee for the San Diego Centennial Celebration of Balboa Park (Pan-American World’s Fair) and their consideration of technology applications for the Expo in 2015.

Special thanks to Musician/Composer Edwin Masters for playing classical guitar during the unveiling of the Dali hologram (starting at 1:33 on the video).
