William Sanchez

Strongest Man In Salsa

A “NuYoRican” native living in the DMV, DJ “Hercules” (William Sanchez, Jr.) “The Strongest Man In SALSA” has been filling floors of venues for more than 15 years.  Hercules looks to present music outside of the box, bridging the classic past of all types of genres with a forward sense toward the profound sound of today and beyond. Hercules was influenced by may genres growing up in the New York City area, including Salsa, Mambo, Cha Cha, Bachata, Merengue and Latin House. His specific passion for salsa music comes from growing up in a Puerto Rican home where his dad was consistently playing mostly salsa, along with some merengue and boleros. Hercules is the resident DJ at The Salsa Room located in Arlington, VA, playing in concerts driven by salsa artists such as El Gran Combo, Sonora
Poncena, Oscar D’Leon, and Gilberto Santa Rosa, to name a few.  He is also the CEO of Torrchez Entertainment, LLC, alongside his wife, Emilly (DJ “La Taina”), providing music services for all types of functions. Hercules states, “I love all types of music…and if I hear a sound that moves me, I go with it.  I enjoy seeing a dancer’s reaction, driven by the feeling of a song that moves them physically and emotionally. ASI!! (Like That!)”
