The Troilo & Pugliese Loving Tangonaut

Gregor says “For years I’ve been quizzing DJs on how they do “it”. Then the moment came when I simply had to try it myself. BAM! It was exciting, satisfying and simply a great joy. Inside, I’m always dancing with everyone in the milonga and it never gets boring to watch the reactions and think about what tanda I can use next to positively influence the flow on the dance floor.

My tango house gods are Troilo, Pugliese, D’Arienzo and Di Sarli. There is such a variety of good and different music from them that it is easy for me to play their music often. After all, you never get bored with cheese, bread & wine and chocolate 😉

There are, of course, many other great orchestras that I enjoy playing that add to the diversity and suit the taste of the dancers.

At Garua, I will choose an orchestra that corresponds to a good whiskey, lush like a green meadow and soft as a blanket of the best sheep’s wool.”

We say: After dancing to Gregors music multiple times from as far away as Kyiv to many times in his hometown of Basel, it is a delight to welcome him at last to Ireland and to play for you all in Garúa. 

Favourite Food: Gregor though about this and admitted an addiction to traditional Irish Beef & Guiness Stew
