Stavros and Maria provide Greek and American dinner and
dance music for weddings, baptisms, anniversary parties,
festivals, dances, and other special events. We cover Greek
dance music, top 40, show tunes and standards, and favorites
from the 40s through today's music.

Stavros and Maria give you the full band sound you've been
looking for by using Stavros' midi arrangements as the
backdrop for his live performance on keyboards, Bouzouki,
guitar, and bass.  To this, Stavros and Maria add their
outstanding vocals.
My brother Stavros Flamporis and I formed Stavros & Maria 12
years ago after deciding to let bygones be bygones for all of
the years we spent tormenting each other in our childhood. Our
shared love of music and our Greek heritage superseded the
childhood trauma we inflicted on each other.  Having grown up
in a "big fat Greek household," it seemed only natural to use
our musical talents to share that culture with others.
Stavros Flamporis
Stavros began playing music at a very young age. Throughout
his school years he studied piano, bass violin, Sousaphone,
guitar, electric bass, and Bouzouki, the 8-stringed Greek
instrument you see pictured above. Stavros credits our
beloved grandfather, whom he's named after, with cultivating
his interest in the instrument. Grandfather Stavros played the
Bouzouki and began teaching Stavros how to play it. While in
Greece with our grandparents, Stavros took lessons from a
Bouzouki teacher and from then on, just took off on this
instrument.

Stavros has been playing professionally in musical groups for
twenty-five years, primarily in the southeastern Pennsylvania
area.  He has played Bass in American top-40 groups such as
M
asquerade, Loose Ends, Prime Time, Sprojo, Marty and the
Mangos, and Synergy
.  He has played more traditional music
with
The Sam Marabella Orchestra. Stavros can be heard
playing upright Bass in “From the River to the Mountains” with
East Side Dave and the Mountain Folk Band on CD. He
performed at the Pennsylvania Governor's Awards Ceremony
Reception in 2004, has performed at The Sahara Restaurant in
Reading, PA, Tavern on Camac in Philadelphia, and at the
Bethlehem Musikfest in Bethlehem, PA. In addition to
Stavros
& Maria
, Stavros has performed Greek music with The
Townsmen East, The Greek Mystique and Paul Kauriga.  

In his studio, Stavros uses his instrumental experience with
Bass, Guitar, Keyboards, and Bouzouki to create
orchestrations that uniquely accompany his live instrumental
and vocal performances.

Frank and I so enjoyed your music last night and are
excited for you and Stavros to play at Leigh and
Clare's wedding! Your "Time to Say Goodbye" was
breathtaking and we hope you will sing it the evening
of the wedding. Frank and I are huge Andrea Boccelli
fans having attended 3 of his live performances.
Bravo!

Maria and Stavros,
Thank you for providing us with the wonderful music
at our wedding. You both have beautiful voices and I
think it set a nice tone for our guests.  It meant the
