Luis “Javi Star” Egurrola
“My sound is all about feels.... Whether it’s Happy, Sad, or Love feelings I want my music to move you. Although my roots and inspiration come from the old school R&B and Soul sound. I love to infuse those feels with sounds of today. New age twist with a Retro Vibes.”
Luis “Javi Star” Egurrola has been entertaining the masses with his unique style, passion and performance since the tender age of eight. During High School and College, he further explored the world of theater and dance which created an opportunity for Javi to perform in multiple local and national productions; setting the framework for a life of entertainment, countless collaborations, awards, and accolades for years to come.
Some of his musical influences include Prince, Michael Jackson, George Michael, and Maxwell; these artistic styles are easily identified as you watch Javi’s engaging and eclectic style of entertainment.
Javi has coached and performed with the Phoenix Mercury Hip Hop Squad and the Phoenix SUNS Solar Squad for over a decade. He lends his skillset to Choreography Pros (A Pro Dance Convention), by choreographing for collegiate and dance teams in the NBA. Such teams include the Golden State Warriors, Cleveland Cavs, Portland Trailblazers, Sacramento Kings and the Denver Nuggets.
Javi performed in and choreographed for the 2009 NBA All-Star Week, and has choreographed for many events in the valley of the sun as well as nationally. His personal style left his thumbprint on several music videos, live performances, theatrical events, hosting events and competitions.
