Saso Gacnik (Keyboards)

Musical background: I was born into a musical family. I started my musical education with my father. He often took me to his concerts and I had the chance to get to know the real musical life. When I was seven years old he bought me my first keyboard (old Kawai K1) and I had free hands for experiments and for exploring the instrument.

I continued my musical education in music primary and high schools where I played the accordion. Currently I am studying piano and keyboards at the Pop-Jazz-department of Anton Bruckner University in Linz.

My career so far includes playing with some very famous names: Christopher Cross (USA, 5 Grammys, 1 Oscar), Musical Youth (GB), Jem Cooke (GB), Jan Plestenjak (SLO), Nusa Derenda (SLO) and many others. I also performed every Sunday evening in the very well known TV-show »Zvezde Pojejo« on Slovenian national TV throughout 2008.
