Espino is indeed Caliente as is his band. The small town of Granada, Nicaragua is an unlikely beginning for a virtuoso guitarist the caliber of Roger Espinoza. But then nothing about this uncommon artist is exactly as it seems. The sound emanating from the family piano often filled the Espinoza home. Roger (senior) would often treat the family to his musical prowess during informal family gatherings. It was here for the first time that Roger jr. delighted to the melodies that would come to be the heart of his signature style throughout his adult years. The chance at a better life brought the Espinoza’s to the "new world." When he was just three years of age, Roger, his brother Dexter, mother Nora and father Roger Sr. all sought their fortune in America, moving to the island of Manhattan. By the age of seven, Roger’s family had made another move -- this time west and the young Espinoza found himself living in Hollywood. His musicality began innocently enough as a member of a choir. At LA’s St. Kevin’s church, young Roger Espinoza sang with the "Kevinettes" and started a musical journey that has culminated with the release of his New World Music debut, Café Fuego. But the finesse and artistry the virtuoso displays on the instrument today came from an unlikely inspiration. "As soon as I heard the rock group KISS and Van Halen, myself and my friends grabbed tennis rackets, put on some face paint and bingo instant KISS. Since then, Roger has built from the ground up Espimusic Entertainment and has had the fortunate opportunity to work some great events as well as great musicians and hollywood actors. Andrea Bocelli, Il Divo on the tonight show featuring Jay Leno, Grammy winner David Foster, Johnny Mathis, Chris Botti, Cristina Aguilera, The Dr. Phil show, L.A. Lakers David Fischer, Sergio Mendes, Hilary Clinton. Espino, (Espimusic Entertainment), also, in collaboration with some of L.A. finest catering companies has had the privilege to provide events for Halle Berry, Saban, President of Mexico Vincente Fox, The Schwarzenegger’s. Espino has some commercial credits as well. Coke commercial featuring Selma Hayek, "Jello" jingle, Mens Wherehouse, Telemundo (spanish t.v.), promoting his new c.d. "Masks"
