I was super lucky".
"..I remember very clearly that the first concert we made together we couldn't rehearse and found ourselves on stage at the beginning of the concert and everything was born there. I have a great feeling with Andrea because we have pretty much the same musical background. I strongly believe Andrea's a great guitarist, even with lap steel guitar, I must say that he is also a great blues /jazz singer and this is an added value to our shows (Dean Bowman - well renowned American Jazz Artist)"

"..I decided to support Andrea by building a whole set of luxury guitars: two spectacular electric Lap Steels, a Weissenborn model (early 1900's project) and an extraordinary acoustic guitar Parlor model.
A few months after, my guitars were used by Andrea at the Johnny Winter concert held in Rome on May 11, 2014. This gave my brand the opportunity to be admired and known by thousands of people and by the great bluesman, Johnny Winter (Samuele Calamassi - professional lute-maker from Empoli, Italy)"
"By the age of 20 I was starting to write my own songs and that's the great face of my job. My first album "Andrea De Luca Blues Trio" is out on Itunes and I have three new records ready to go out.
"..I discovered a super professional blues musician and a gentleman who is really motivated to build his musical future. He plays both guitar and Lap Steel guitar with amazing passion. His talent is real and his music resonates with our audience (Pat Walsh - Radio DJ for KFBC Sacramento CA USA)"
