"I wanted to produce and perform music inspired by groups and artists like War, Cymande, Johnny Hammond, and Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters, but with the Vega Family Elements of Life twist and style. I created Elements of Life with my studio musicians and rhythm section of Elements of Life and Nuyorican Soul. I want to take this band and perform in festivals and venues like The Blue Note, Jazz Café, Ronnie Scots, and BB Kings.
