El Centro Cultural Español en Miami (CCEMiami) presenta la edición del concierto The Acoustic Guitar Project con Morrison, Plas, David Rufes, Johanna Viscaino y Eddy Bayes.
The Acoustic Guitar Project es un proyecto global que inspira a los artistas a escribir canciones originales en tan sólo una semana. Cada año se seleccionan artistas locales que componen un tema con la misma guitarra en tan sólo 7 días. Además, todos tocarán dos canciones más a su elección.

After many years playing very different styles of music, David’s musical career took off with a very personal way to play rock-fusion through his album Assorted Random Notes (2014). Just after releasing the album he would have the opportunity to share the stage with first class musicians like Joe Satriani, The Aristocrats (Guthrie Govan, Bryan Beller and Marco Minnemann) or Mike Keneally.
He moved to the USA where he kept developing his very own style while enjoying playing with artists like Daniel Ben Zebulon (Stevie Wonder, Richie Havens, Isaac Hayes…) or Robben Ford. During his first year in the USA he composed his album The night we met released in March 2017. A step forward in his career into a very relaxed and melodic jazz. For this record David recorded all guitars, bass and percussion and had Pau Chafer (Presuntos Implicados, Revolver) playing keys, Paul Evans (Eric Delaney, Soledad Jiménez…) playing Trumpets and Felipe Cucciardi (Lou Bennett, Michel Camilo…) playing drums.
In May 2017 David Rufes Band was invited to play in the Coral Gables Blues Festival (Florida) with Blues legends such as Juanita Dixon or Joey Gilmour) and continues playing regularly in Miami where he resides.
