About The Stick & Rope Band
From pop music to fado, to Mediterranean roots music and with the present matrix of acoustic ensemble, the Stick & Rope Band proposes an instrumental musical experience, transversal to styles and languages, searching for new ways and their own sound identity.

Wood and string are the two materials and elements that underpin the construction of chordophones and all stringed instruments. The Stick & Rope Band took inspiration for its name from a quote by a musician who used to say that ‘nothing sounds better than a stick and string band’.  


And rare are the times when it is possible to bring together two unique elements in the creation of music and a band: excellence of execution and friendship. When this happens, allied to a strong complicity, the woods and the strings breathe.


Stick & Rope Band is formed by a group of old friends, musicians and Portuguese instrumentalists with wide experience in the accompaniment of several artists: Frederico Gato (bass), João Tiago Oliveira (classic guitar), Ricardo Parreira (Portuguese guitar) and João Mouzinho (percussion). 


Together on stage, this group of friends presents in concert a set of new arrangements of themes and songs by composers they admire, as well as original instrumental themes composed by them.
