I so enjoy having  Synergy play at our Tapas nights. They bring a quiet energy to the evening and create the kind of atmosphere that only live music can. If you’ve been to Tapas night before, you’ll know exactly what I mean. It’s the perfect marriage of music and food!

I thought you might like be interested in finding out a bit more about the creators of this captivating sound.

Synergy are a trio from different countries who have found a common ground in creating a modern Mediterranean sound,peppered with classical influence. Juan Casals Mendoza talks about music being a constant in his life, guitar was always part of home. Watching a documentary about the renowned Spanish flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucia is a powerful memory that ignited Juan’s passion to play.  By contrast, Juan Manzanera began playing much later, only discovering his love of the bass guitar at twenty-two. He works in all styles, from alternative rock to reggae and it is studying a for a degree in music performance. Glenn Phillips completes the trio, bringing influences from Jason Mraz, Alejandro Sanj and John Mayers and a delight in a tremendous range of music from Flamenco to Soul to Rock and Roll. With such a range of influence, as well as a love for classical style they are a unique and talented blend of skill and passion. .


As well as making our Tapas night extra special, Synergy are a favourite at many of our weddings. They work closely with our couples to enhance key moments of the day, from the quiet charm of the ceremony to the magic of the first dance and beyond. They also have an album Diversion which has come to the attention of BBC Introducing, who loved the sense of being “hypnotised by the stunning guitar”.


One of the band’s favourite things about playing Tapas night is when they play their own tracks unplugged at the end of the night. It’s a rare chance to see them in a cosy setting. Their other favourite thing is having the chance to sample the delicious Tapas, described by Glenn as being as good as you could find in Spain !
