Jorge's first favorite band was KISS and that got him started with his passion towards drumming. He would eventually build a drum set out of 5 gallon buckets. His introduction to the band Journey concreted the decision that he wanted to be a musician.
Jorge played in several cover bands playing styles from rock, funk, fusion, to country. Playing gigs in Portland, Seattle, South Dakota, Las Vegas, Oklahoma, and Branson Missouri. He was even asked twice to play for country legend and Hee Haw star Roy Clark and had the honor of playing with The World Famous Platters.
In 2003, Jorge was introduced to Dueling Pianos. After a stint on drums, Jorge started learning piano in 2009. His passion has had him work for several successful piano bars Including Savannah Smiles in Savannah GA. In 2015, he headed out to sea working for Grand Celebration Cruise, Carnival Cruise Lines and Norwegian Cruise Lines. In 2016, Jorge became the Entertainment Director of the successful Uptown Funk Dueling Pianos in Albuquerque NM.
