DJ Gury Gury

DJ Gury Gury (Gary Verrinder) discovered Salsa music while living and studing Spanish in la habana Cuba. " I lived on the same street as the legendary el Tosco of NG la Banda and would wake up every afternoon listening to the sounds of their rehearsal" say Gury Gury. This inspired him to become involved in the world of Latin music. After moving for a short while to his adopted country Colombia he adopted the name Gury Gury after a television charactor because his family could not pronounce Gary.

He discovered his passion as a DJ, in his basement in the early 80's mixing Duran Duran songs on a 2 track. In 1986 after forming the legendary Toronto Punk Rock label X Records Gary began an internship on CHRY 105.5 FM out of York University. After numourous shows and promotions Gary X, as he was known then, became the music director in 1989. He remained in that postion until 1994 when he also gave up his show and other club DJing duties to travel the world.

Upon returning to Canada in 2001 the Salsa bug had bitten Gury. Viejoteca the radio program was begun on May 1st 2003 on CFRU 93.3 FM after a couple of years of reasearch about the music. Since then Gury Gury has been asked to be the resident DJ at the E-Bar in Guelph Ontario Canada.
