Antonio Bliss is the genius behind Saxchata.
He has been playing saxophone since the young age of 10, and is trained in both jazz and classical styles. After moving to Los Angeles at the age of 25, he unknowingly became a new influence on the Latin music scene. Once he started dancing salsa it quickly became a personal passion of his, and in August of 2008
he began organizing Friday salsa night at the Warehouse restaurant in Marina Del Rey, CA. This is where he was introduced to bachata, and it truly struck a chord with him. Monthly Bachata Bliss socials were born. Antonio's events have become the premiere nights for dancing on LA's West Side.
Yet his love for bachata did not stop there. With his saxophone Antonio began playing along with his favorite songs, and eventually recorded his first track, a cover of Richard Marx's "Right Here Waiting." His innovative fusion of saxophone and bachata led him to create and establish his new signature genre "Saxchata."
Since then Antonio, has transformed himself into a bachata virtuoso, recording his breakout hit "Invincible" in collaboration with world renowned Dj Soltrix. He has gone on to record many new saxchata remixes and perform his music all around the country. He has performed on major stages, such as LA Bachata Festival, La Salsa Fest, SF Bachata Festival, Seattle Festival, Queen Mary and many more. Antonio has also shared these stages with top bachata artist such as Johnny Sky, Jr, Voz a Voz and Grupo Extra, to name a few.
