Behind the music

YIANNIS SACHINIS

Founder & drummer of The Tricks

"I discovered drums at age 15 when when someone was drumming on the desk next to me in Science class. I couldn't believe that one person could make these sounds by banging their hands and feet on a desk. From this day forward I was addicted and never looked back."

 

Yiannis founded The Tricks in 2008 and the idea behind it was to take DJ mix techniques and use them with a live band. Since then they've arranged a whole range of exciting medleys and mashups that are designed to get the party going. 

As well as running The Tricks Yiannis has also been a member of originals band - Brother & Bones where he cut his teeth in the touring and recording life around the globe.
