Known for his versatile abilities on the guitar, Sachs brings passion and technical prowess to whatever music is at hand. He does whatever it takes to support the music.
Sachs first picked up guitar at the age of 9 years old. There were always guitars around the house, because of his father, who would often play in his free time. He first took lessons at a local music store then was self-taught for a few years, where he immersed himself in blues and rock. He began studying with a private teacher in high school, after discovering his love for jazz, then began his journey as a professional musician from then on.
Sachs first studied music at El Camino Community College, then transferred to the University of North Texas on a scholarship. There, he played with the 3 o’clock Lab Band, and other varying groups, both as a sideman and bandleader. He performed at music festivals such as the Deep Ellum Arts Festival, Denton Arts and Jazz festival and Mayfest. He performs regularly with his jazz trio at Market St. in Flowermound, TX and enjoys a wide array of freelance performance and studio work, from rock/pop and cover bands to country music.
