Dr Sanchez will be playing at The George every Friday night. For the last 10 years Dr Sanchez has played professionally as a Latin guitarist all over Europe and Australasia.
Founding member of Gold Coast Latin duo "Jose and Iguado" and band "Gitano" - Dr Sanchez worked for 5 years with these bands, developing a feel for spontaneous, improvised Latin guitar. One of the few full-time professional performers of Spanish and South American music in New Zealand, Dr Sanchez has developed his improvisational skill in instrumental guitar into an exciting occupation - averaging around 260 performances a year.
Dr Sanchez plays a mixture of traditional Mediterranean and South American songs, from artists such as Paco de Lucia, Armik, Ottmar Liebert and Santana, right thru to original tracks that lean more toward progressive beats fused with nylon string guitar. Dr Sanchez embraces the sounds of Latin guitar in both the traditional and new flamenco manner and works on many side projects with musicians from different genres, including DJs and producers of house and dubstep - namely the newly formed crossover trio of Switch Sanchez Nacoa...an amazing blend of live sax, Latin guitar and DJ. Dr Sanchez is currently based in Christchurch, New Zealand and plays many weekly residencies.
