“Purveyor of deep, infectious, high energy vibes; using music to create a feel good atmosphere"...

 

That’s how Sir Benzo describes himself as a DJ, MC and host. Using selections that he was exposed to throughout his life, he is never afraid to go too deep into different musical genres to create the vibe, mood and nostalgia...

 

Born and raised in the multi cultural twin island republic of Trinidad & Tobago, he grew up listening to the musical genres of Calypso, Soca, Parang, Reggae, Dancehall , Hip Hop, Pop and Soul Music from the 80s and 90s. This all became infused with his own energy and lifestyle and influences his sets today. He loves creating an energy  that translates into his sets. He picks apart and infuses together all the pieces of music that he loves best.

 

Though he loves playing in Carnival events, nightclubs, weddings and special events, his love for music goes beyond the spectrum of mixing tunes.  As an up and coming host and MC he wants to use his media platform to express himself much more on an artistic level.
