BRUNO CAMPS - LEAD GUITAR / LAP STEEL

Bruno Camps

 

In his early teens when he  first heard “Sultans of swing” by Dire Straits.  At that very moment he knew he had to learn to play that song like Mark Knopfler, so he picked up a Spanish guitar and asked his sister to teach him some chords.   In the decades that followed, Bruno has played different styles of music ranging from classic rock, gypsy swing, blues, and rock & roll to different kinds of country including Americana and red dirt —his favorite.  He has played in many different bands and recorded in Europe and the United States, including a recording session with The World Famous Platters’s own Eddie Stovall.  Bruno has also played "Sultans of Swing” live hundreds of times and still does with anyone who will play along.  Several years ago Bruno decided to chase his own tone with with the idea of something between Knopfler and Twang in mind, and started building his own tube amps under the name Camplification.  A dream of almost 3 decades comes alive every time he's on a stage making those tubes sing.
