I came to Vermont to attend the University of Vermont. After I graduated I decided to make this my home. Fast forward some years and I saw Vermont diversifying. I was approached several times to play some music and start some dances. We began slowly. This was a means of meeting people and socializing. As we grew into monthly dances, I saw a need to bring Latin Bands to Vermont. We began with the "Valentine's Latin Dance". The Valentine's Latin dance grew to be known as the date where I would produce an event with a Live Band. We all looked forward to it. But we knew we wanted more. Two years after I began the Valentine's dance I began to help produce the Vermont Latino Festival. These events opened the doors to Latin Bands and djs starting in this beautiful state.
