Born in Prague, the city of a hundred spires, George has spent the last four decades living and playing music on three continents. He holds a music diploma from the Royal College of Music in London and a Master’s degree from the University of Essex.
In late 2011, sponsored by the late great guitar legend, Larry Coryell, George relocated to the US and is now active on the Central Florida music scene: he works as a solo artist for Disney (mostly at the Port Orleans Resort in Orlando), he leads a jazz trio that is a fixture on the local jazz scene and most recently, he has put together Swing Boutique, a band specializing in what can best be described as “Continental Jazz” – anything from Django Reinhardt to Edith Piaf to musette waltzes.
In addition, George is a busy sideman with numerous outfits, and works in various recording studios around town, laying down guitar tracks for a variety of Central Florida artists. He also travels to Canada quite often where he performs with his six piece swing band, Bohemian Swing, most recently at the 2016 Toronto Jazz Festival.
