ABOUT BANDERA

Bandera -- A genesis of musical styles combining the influences of Rock and Rhythm and Blues with a touch of soulful Latin.

The band consists of four members from distinct backgrounds --

John Garzon
Born in Bogota, Colombia and raised in New York City, John founded Bandera as an evolution of several bands he formed years prior. Bandera was formed to combine several styles of music that influenced John. John grew up listening to Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton and then transitioned to influences by Santana, Juanes and Mana. The bottom line is John's mission is to bring his own brand of original music through Bandera! "I love writing music about Love and the struggle for peace in the world."

Carl DeAngelis
The bass and bottom of Bandera music. Carl has a blues and rock background and he loves to play those old standard blues tunes from the Mississippi Delta and Chicago, influenced by Elmore James and Muddy Waters. "I love playing the bass for Bandera and I’m still working on doing the world tour!"

Alicia Sanchez
Argentinian born lead vocalist for Bandera, loves to sing Spanish and English music and interprets John's original songs in Spanish and English in a original and unforgettable way!

Chris Jordan
Friend and fill in percussion player can make it sound like there is a whole percussion section for Bandera! When not filling in for Bandera on percussion Chris is probably one of our most loyal fans!

Greg Seid
Tenor and alto sax is living his dream playing with Bandera. He loves to play Jazz, Blues and Rock n Roll. Greg is inspired by all musicians who put their souls out there every night making music for pure enjoyment. "What an amazing rush to express myself as an artist and look out to the crowd and see their appreciation and joy".

Together John, Alicia, Chris, Carl, and Greg are Bandera. We play for the joy and passion that we feel for the music. Come join us on this incredible journey!!!
