Puerto Rican Percussionist Steve Guasch was influenced at a very early age by his father’s LPs and the local music scene in the towns of Santa Juanita, Magnolia and Campo Alegre, where he grew up.

Steve moved to Seattle in 1987 and it didn’t take long before he started making his presence felt in the Pacific Northwest salsa scene. He played with several local bands before he co-founded the band La Mayor Salsa with which he recorded his first album, ‘Canto Mi Corazon.’ 

In 1996, he co-founded Orquesta Nueva Era and, in 2006, the album, “Siguiendo La Tradición” featuring the local talented musicians Eddie Quintero, Julio Jauregui, Thomas Marriot, Ted Dortch, Lee Bradford, and Bret White; with arrangements from Oscar Hernández and Ray Santos made the third round of preselection for the Latin Grammys.

In the summer of 2009, Steve released his latest production, ‘Influencias,’ with his band, Guaschará. It garnered great reviews around the world and preselection round for the Latin Grammy thanks to great production values, arrangements and original compositions by Julio Jauregui.
