Born in Madrid, Quique started playing harmonica at age 18 and assembled his first band, Juan Bourbon, Juan Scoth & Juan Beer, at the age of 20. With this band he traveled the Spanish stages during the following decade, while studying and running a small club. In 2008,  he visited Chicago and met some of the Blues’ greatest exponents with whom he started playing frequently on both sides of the Atlantic. Quique has stepped on stages from five continents, sharing them with artists such as John Primer, Eddie C.
