Percussionist Antonio (Tony) Rodrequiz sits in the studio with me as we listen to and discuss Salsa music!
Tony has been playing conga drums since the age of 23. A late start by musician standards, but his love for drums and music made all the difference.
In a short period, Tony was traveling the world with some of the hottest artists and musicians in Salsa and Latin music. A long-time friend of my wife. I was told Tony was part of the package when I asked her to marry me. I was like, ok, "cool to me!"
Together Tony and I listen to some of the most awesome Salsa music during the 20th century. Tony also shares the touching story of his dad's transition and how he, his family and friends used the music his dad loved to send him off!
