Gregorio Sanchez, better known as BennyRox, has worked hard for where he stands today. From being born and raised in Mexico, to making his way up the I-5 corridor from California to Bend, and then eventually ending up in Portland, OR, his life has always been a journey. His passion for music grew from having a background in music school, where he learned audio engineering and music production. He’s always been an artist, whether it be playing in metal or r&b bands at age 15, or getting into different types of music and genres as the years progressed. After linking up with his friends from Portland five years ago and getting involved with electronic dance music, he has made an everlasting statement in the rose city.
After linking up about five years ago with friends from Portland, I was already into electronic music but not into EDM stuff. I was more into Indie and Nu disco type stuff. Which made the transition to electronic dance music a lot easier coming from rock n roll. I was brought up into the scene;it wasn’t like I started from scratch. So because of my background, that’s basically how I started meeting more people.
Basically I’ve always pursued musical things, I’ve always been some sort of musical entrepreneur searching for the right vibe and energy. When i was 21 different artists were different back then and popular music has evolved over the years.
