Sounds like: blues, jazz, flamenco, latin, bluegrass

Pedro Arévalo is a staple of the Sarasota music scene. His father, known around town as Acoustic Pete, has a number of weekly gigs that Pedro and his brother Jefe step in on. Arévalo plays many instruments, but considers himself a bassist. He’s played in bands from across the genres including Swamp Grass, The Lotus Fire, Los Mosquitoes and the Vine Street Rumba Band, to name a few. He just returned from touring with Dickey Betts & Great Southern and has been playing slide guitar with Greg Allman’s son, Devon Allman, in a band called Honey Tribe. Aside from all this he has released two independently produced albums under his own name, both of which feature a spectrum of genres. “I like variety,” says Arevalo. “I love blues, country-blues and all kind of hillbilly music like bluegrass. I love jazz, just improvisation. I consider myself an improviser. That’s my profession.”
