LIC, NY - United States
Special thanks to my brother "COZ" for inspiring me to return to my Boricua roots, and for the gift of congas one snowy Navidad in NJ which inspired me to return to the congas and the Salsa music that gave birth to "El Mazacote de la Mexcla Salsera", THANKS BRO !!!! A special shout out to my mom, dad and uncle Ray for the gift of music and percussion at a very young age, god bless you always !!!! I also want to thank my entire family for allowing me to share my gift of music with you all, I truly loved all of those times and wouldn't change a thing, just live life to its fullest and listen to your heart !!!! A SPECIAL THANKS to my best friend and wife, I have lived life to its fullest and wouldn't change any of it, you're my inspiration and best friend who has given me the best gift of all ... YOU !!!! A special thanks to my best friend and other brother David, great times, great memories, great mixes ... ... ... best friends for ever !!! About me, I have been recording & mixing Latin Jazz & Salsa Gorda since 1977, I also mix Latin, house, dance classics, old school 1980's hip-hop and world music. I have also played live Latin Jazz percussion at the Blue note NYC, and at Cecil's Swingin' Latin jazz nights in Orange NJ. My musical mentors who taught me during my teenage years and in the Spanish Harlem percussion clinics include the jazz & salsa legends Ray Barretto, Tito Puente and Charlie Palmieri. I also love to play Latin percussion to just about everything especially the "Fania All-Stars", Ihave alsomixed "salsa gorda" tunes for my brother from another mother and dear fellow friend Pedro Gomez back at Telemundo TV studios in Hato Rey PR, que viva la salsa por que aqui se formo la rumba!!!!

But, Heres the thing we continued to inspire young Djs to play the music and play right. expose the artist musical talent as well show casing the dj's talent ! Maestro & TonyRichard, have a lot we bring to the tables. Listen close people. we bring music with a subliminal message
