Amigos Nobles plays an intense, unique brand of instrumental, classical guitar-based Euro-Mediterranean, World Beat Fusion.
The band picked the name Amigos Nobles because the name means "Noble Friends" and not only represents the Mediterranean- style of their music, but also the friendship they have developed.
Amigos Nobles consists of Pacific Northwest musicians Jerry Wirkkala on guitars, Richard Ferguson on guitar & bass and Angelo Ortiz on percussion. Jerry Wirkkala is a masterful guitarist who's been fusing nuevo flamenco, blues and jazz and has been performing around the Seattle area for a number of years.
Richard Ferguson has been a rock player for many years. After attending a Gipsy Kings concert Richard became inspired, purchased a classical guitar and began learning the Euro-Nuevo Flamenco style songs Jerry was playing. With his rock roots always present, Richard's unique sound adds a special element to Amigos Nobles.
