Si Genaro

If you are a regular visitor to many of the Open Mic sessions dotted around some of Bournemouth town’s music venues you cannot have failed to have to have seen the character and the ego that is Si Genaro.

You may notice he looks a little like a young Ray Davies from The Kinks, and he talks rather a lot. However, what he has to say can be a little controversial but always interesting. Si is also an excellent all round entertainer, when you see one of his solo shows he will impress you with his great original songs, beat boxing, harmonica skills and superb guitar work.

Si Genaro

Si was invited into the Livewire Live show on Hope FM (90.1 FM) for a chat and to play a few of his own songs in his very own charismatic style. The evening was really a take over with Si doing much of the talking with stories of his Ex girlfriend Rhiannna, yes that’s the Rhianna the mega star who he briefly dated. There was also stories of how he went on honeymoon with a jilted Lawrence Case of Bournemouth Rock band Voodoo Vegas to the Algarve and wrote one of the band’s songs “Lost In Confusion”.

There is no end to this man’s never ending talents, check out the videos of his performance below or better still get along to one of his many live gigs I promise you will not be disappointed.
