He played drums on the drum line and trombone in high school, which lead him to playing electrical instruments as an adult. Sergio formed and originated five different bands in the Atlanta area and played live up and down the Eastern Coast, from Atlanta to Canada for over ten years. After focusing on recording and music production for the past two years, Sergio now anticipates on releasing his first album and performing live again!
