Meet your DJ: DJ Hercules – William Sanchez

A “NuYoRican” native now living in the DMV, William Sanchez/DJ Hercules is known as “The Strongest Man in SALSA” and has been filling floors of venues for more than 20 years. William 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.

Growing up in the New York City area, William was influenced by many genres 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.

“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!)”

DJ Hercules is the resident DJ at The Salsa Room located in Arlington, VA, and Salsa Radio DJ 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.
