Instruments: Guitar details
Although a rocker at heart, Sy Sylver has ventured into a genre of music most guitarists refuse to play.
Since entering House, Electronica, Top 40, Mash Up, or Trance, Sy has made his mark on the world nightclub scene, establishing him as a pioneer in the history of electronic club music. Whether Sy is performing at an exclusive venue in The Hamptons, or playing an electrifying set alongside Paul Oakenfold in Las Vegas, Sy will win the audiences’ affection every time.
Sy got his first big break performing at the world famous Palladium Nightclub in Acapulco Mexico. Since then, he has been free styling his electric guitar grooves with DJs and freaking out people everywhere he plays. Sy has been honored to perform in some of the world’s greatest cities (including Ibiza at the legendary Amnesia, Space and Privilege nightclubs, Tel Aviv, Dubai, Las Vegas, Chicago, New York, Boston, Montreal, Cancun, Mexico City, Puerto Vallarta and Prague to name a few) and has had the honor of opening and playing alongside with several of the worlds leading international DJs including Paul Oakenfold, Benny Bennassi, Tiesto, DJ Skribble, Seb Fontaine, Bad Boy Bill, Edgar V, DJ Vice, Mikey Swift, Mark Oliver, Yahel and many others.
When Sy plays with the DJ, his guitar playing is completely improvised. This is not a simple task when performing under the lights and mayhem in front of large crowds, and often-tight surroundings. Once he starts, strap on your seat belts; his guitar playing is about to take you on a trip.
His performances have become so seamless that clubbers are often convinced Sy is not actually playing. Although it is the highest compliment he can receive, be assured Sy IS in fact really playing.
His performances in front of thousands at clubs in North America, the Middle East and Europe have proved more than ever that the concept of a live guitarist free styling with a DJ is a force to be reckoned with
