Hi, I'm Stefan Malinowski, a professional musician from the UK currently living and working in Dubai.

Playing Everything videos are videos... in which I... play everything. They're fun to do but it takes a couple of free days to put one together.

Demo videos for Flipside and my Solo shows are also on my YouTube channels.

Wildcard (Solo)

As a solo act I play acoustic guitar and/or piano. My massive and varied repertoire allows me to adapt to any venue and crowd or take requests.

Teaming up with a female singer is always possible and makes for a much better looking function duo.

I play bass with the current incarnation of Flipside. As a trio the group uses backing tracks to cover the drums and keys whilst Cris Bernardo sings and Rino Lista takes care of the guitar.

For venues or events with the space and budget we are very happy to bring in our drummer, Mariusz Bodnar.

I occasionally play bass or acoustic guitar with The Daytrippers, usually a trio featuring Tracey Skibinski-Jones on vocals, Martin Carré on Guitar and Eddie Parsons on Drums.
