The perfect blend of Spanish guitar, pop, blues and rock music, as well as jazz.

Teo was quickly joined by the  guitarist Paul Alcaide .Pablo Alcaide (Paul ) has a long experience as a music teacher . He is a composer and performer, and has received several merits and won performance competitions as a guitarist. Throughout his life Paul Alcaide has combined music with education in multiple projects coordinated by himself, both in music therapy for people with special needs, such as in schools and extracurricular aid projects and international cooperation activities.
The mix of youthful ideas from Teo with the experience of Paul  was just perfect!

CEZAR – the voice – A Dream in Blue special guests as opening act of the concert at Parador de Turismo de Javea !

October 1, 2015




The perfect blend of Spanish guitar, pop, blues and rock music, as well as jazz.
The group was founded by Teo Holmstrom.
Teo is a 16 years old teenager, ahead of his age. “When I started to practice electric guitar (with Stewart Collier) at 13, I got the inspiration to practice and really take it to the next level” . He first founded Happy Freuds together with his younger brother Victor. As of today, 2015, at the age of 12 & 16 the guys have broken a lot of boundaries in terms of ability by performing challenging rock numbers like Black Betty, War Pigs & Scuttle Buttin’. On stage, they are for the time performin with Stewart Collier who, amongst other merits is the leader of the Javea Rock Academy.

A Bass player in their own age group is during summer 2015 doing the work to step in and complete the band and make it . Happy Freuds today have a wide and varied set list that ranges from the 60’s up to Radiohead and Billy Idol. Common theme in their music is the analogue (in lack of a better word) feel of the typical 70’s Rock act where every instrument, every performer, is very present.

Having  the experience of a true band Teo thought about  putting together an eclectic mixed acoustic band to see how combining Spanish, Classical and pop/rock worked. Because of the experimental nature of the band, the playlist is an exciting song selection totally surprising and  different  from most of the Acoustic artists playing the region. Teo was quickly joined by the  guitarist Paul Alcaide .Pablo Alcaide (Paul ) has a long experience as a music teacher . He is a composer and performer, and has received several merits and won performance competitions as a guitarist. Throughout his life Paul Alcaide has combined music with education in multiple projects coordinated by himself, both in music therapy for people with special needs, such as in schools and extracurricular aid projects and international cooperation activities.Lately, he created a group of young people who play traditional music with modern air and soon will release their first CD , accompanied by a video clip shot on the top of the Montgó and Jávea surroundings .

The mix of youthful ideas from Teo with the experience of Paul  was just perfect!
The project has also two lead singers Rebeka Pazmanyova and Asya Prichard that join in on different occasions and different directions.

Another great review for baritone George Petean!

August 17, 2015

Natalia di Bartolo for

Il Trovatore è un colosso verdiano difficile da affrontare: quale capolavoro, esige una direzione adeguata, una schiera di grandi interpreti, una messa in scena credibile e coinvolgente. Ottenere tutto questo insieme è un miraggio: ci si può solo avvicinare alla perfezione, ma meglio se ci si avvicina, innanzitutto, con una adeguata direzione d’orchestra.

The Troubadour is a giant verdian opera difficult to deal with: which work demands a proper direction, a host of great performers, staging a believable and engaging performance. Get all of this together is a Mirage: we can only bring to perfection, but better if you approach, first, with a suitable conducting.

more about George Petean’s part

Padrone assoluto della parte del Conte di Luna, George Petean si è prodotto in una interpretazione che vocalmente può definirsi da antologia. Un gran richiamo a Piero Cappuccilli, ma anche con un orecchio ed un occhio a Giorgio Zancanaro e soprattutto capace di rievocare i tempi d’oro baritonali in cui certe prodezze acute d’epoca ancora precedente, scritte o non scritte che siano, erano all’ordine del giorno. Le ha eseguite tutte, con perfetta padronanza del mezzo vocale, a proprio agio nell’intera parte, voce robusta, bellissimo colore, ottimi fraseggio e dizione, nessuna esitazione, mostrandosi decisamente più Conte di Luna che Rodrigo, così come recentemente lo si era visto a Vienna nel Don Carlo. Grandissimo baritono verdiano: chapeau.

Absolute Master of part of the Earl of Moon, George Petean has produced in a interpretation that vocaly can be defined by Anthology. A great point to Piero Cappuccilli, but also with an ear and an eye to Giorgio Zancanaro and, above all, able to summon the times of gold baritonali in which certain acute feats vintage still precedent, written or not written that they are, they were the order of the day . He has performed all, with perfect mastery of the middle vowel, comfortable in the whole part, voice robust, beautiful color, excellent phrasing and diction, no hesitation, rising significantly more Earl of Moon that Rodrigo, so it was seen as recently In Vienna in Don Carlo. Tremendous Baritone Verdiano: Chapeau.
We all thank you George Petean for your friendship, and for making us proud!
