About
Jean-Paul Buongiorno is one of the California bay area's most soulful and eclectic guitarists. His passion for music has led him through many genres including blues, funk, jazz, reggae, latin, Brazilian, classical and flamenco all of which are reflected in his unique personal style of playing as well as in his compositions. Brought up in an Italian/french family in a small town near chicago Jean-paul began his musical journey with piano lessons at an early age then later picked up the guitar and never put it down. He has performed in countless venues, festivals and stages across the U.S, Spain and Brazil, and has played events for such names as Barack Obama, Larry Ellison, Bono, Willie Brown, Gavin Newson, Google, Apple, Oracle, Audi and Hyundai among others.
Although mostly self taught Jean-paul's continuing joy of exploring the guitar has led him to study with such people as jazz guitarist Mimi fox and Randy Vincent, flamenco guitarists Jason Mcguire, Antonio Rey and Juan Del Gastor, and Brazilian guitarists Paolo Bellinati and guinga.
Jean-paul currently lives in Berkeley California where he continues to perform, record, compose and teach.

Jean-Paul played some absolutely gorgeous music for our outdoor wedding. It really made the day special, and we were able to work together to find a piece of music that was perfect for me coming down the aisle. He also has an extensive repertoire that he played during our cocktail hour. He has his own outdoor setup, and the sound system he brought was perfect for our outdoor event.

Jean-Paul was our guitarist at a nonprofit formal gala event for 130 people. He played beautifully! He was very professional, from communicating before our event, showing up early to set up, to playing such lovely music. His music elevated the mood of our event and set the stage for our successful evening. I highly recommend Jean-Paul for any venue in need of music (weddings, fundraisers, socials), as he exceeded all our expectations!
