Matthew Sanchez has been singing salsa music for over 10 years, playing in venues and events in the NYC, RI, FL, MA, and PR areas. With his sonero improvising and his well toned voice, Matthew is sure to captivate an audience where ever he goes. Matthew lived in NYC where he was lead vocalist for Grupo Arcano (a well known salsa band from Brooklyn, NY). After moving back to Massachusetts where he was born Matthew decided to create a salsa band with his vision to maintain and bring salsa music back to the people and showcase our Latino culture. Matthew has been blessed to share the stage with such artist like Victor Manuelle, Lalo Rodriguez, Tony Vega, Conjunto Classico, Paquito Guzman, and many other artists.
