Los Veleros is a Latin jazz ensemble assembled by guitarist William Reyes. A classically trained guitarist who is equally comfortable with jazz, Bossa Nova, Latin, pop, and experimental music, William taught himself Spanish guitar at a young age and has composed, arranged, recorded, and performed extensively. Through it all, his precision, harmonic clarity, and soulful interpretations shine through. Reyes performs locally in Northwest Arkansas as a solo classical guitarist and is also involved with several other musical groups in the area including Los Veleros, Trio de Janeiro, and the pop band, Jukeboxx. He has performed nationwide with The OneUps, and they have sold well over 10,000 CD’s world wide.
