STORY Nightclub Miami: 47 year old Roger Sanchez might be “older” compared to many of his constituents, but that doesn’t make him any less of a DJ. Born in Queens, New York, Roger Sanchez attended the prestigious High School of Art and Design in New York City, ultimately graduating and then moving on to the Pratt Institute where he was studying for his degree in architecture. It was there that Sanchez received some advice from his father that most boys could only dream about – his father’s advice was to “take a break” from college and dedicate all of his time into DJ’ing. I mean what?! If only all fathers were that cool.
Since then Sanchez has gone on to work with some of the top names in the music industry including Madonna, Daft Punk, No Doubt, Maroon 5 and even Diana Ross. He even went on to win Grammy, which was his first, in 2003 for Best Remixed Recording for the remix he did of No Doubt’s track “Hella Good. The year prior to his first Grammy, Roger Sanchez founded his own label, Stealth Records, which is home to Roger and quite a few other DJ’s. Roger Sanchez now hosts a weekly radio show titled Release Yourself that, according to his Wikipedia page, boasts 15+ million listeners worldwide. On top of his weekly radio show, Sanchez also has a bi-weekly podcast that actually received the first-ever Best Podcast Award back in 2007 at the International Dance Music Awards.
Currently on a tour that is taking him from the East Coast to the West Coast (and Belgium, surprisingly enough), Roger Sanchez has a scheduled stop at STORY Nightclub Miami on Sunday, June 8th in which he will be performing. Resident STORY Nightclub Miami DJ, Dave Sol, will also be playing. $30 is the price for general admission tickets for the ladies with the gentlemen will be at $40, both of which can be purchased by CLICKING HERE. VIP is also available by calling STORY Nightclub Miami VIP host David Gordon at 561-239-1200. This 21+ event will have an upscale dress code enforced. Doors open at 11pm. Tickets are going fast, so don’t miss your chance to see one of the great DJ’s in person!
