This week, Access Local is sitting down to talk with Miguel Recendez. Miguel is a twenty-year-old jazz artist from Sacramento, California. He is currently attending classes at ARC while also working as a full time musician playing shows with his band “Miggy and Friends” all over Sacramento.

While he often plays with and sometimes even leads other bands, Miguel is the band leader for “Miggy and Friends” meaning, in his own words, “You wear a lot of hats.” From booking shows to graphic design, Miguel handles all of it as well as actually performing.


He draws most of his inspiration from “the feeling that he wants to give other people”. He recalls how it feels to listen to other bands recordings which inspires him to try and make that feeling happen for other people in his own way. 

Be sure to tune in this Friday on our website or our SoundCloud to listen to us talk with him.
