Galo Rivera


Playing with passion and zeal.

Galo Rivera is as artistically genuine and unique as music gets.
Finding a consuming joy in his instruments (Guitar), he plays with a
passion  and  zeal that is obvious to any listener, while at the same time,
delivering  welcomed refreshment for the seasoned musician. Galo is  a
very highly respected Latin Rock guitar player. Some of his music influences
has been: Los Indios Tabajara, Santana, John McLaughlin, Malo, Mandrill,
Ohio Players, Graham Central Station, Larry  Carlton, Al DiMeola, and Jimi Hendrix.

After  coming to the U.S. mainland from Puerto Rico on July 4th 1967,
Galo  found early renown touring Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic,
South  and Central America, with various bands and on his own. By the
age of  21 he was playing on stages like Madison Square Garden and
Lincoln  Center in New York City. Throughout his teenage years Galo
continued  to hone his skills as musician recording engineer and a
record  producer. Galo has also shared the stage (co-billing) with
many  greats in the business.

In  his later years Galo has performed and traveled doing an
unbelievable Tribute to Santana in his concerts, like no one
else in the world does. His guitar tone, heart, energy and
feel expresses the same soul fullness and heart
penetrating leads like Santana brings to the  stages.
