When not on the road with the Dirty Band, Chris does his part in the corporate world working as a banker. No one is really sure of what he does from 9 to 5, but his work load parallels "Office Space," which means Chris does approximately 15 minutes of actual work each day - which Chris would argue is about 15 minutes more than any other member of the band.

Chris stays connected with a cell phone, pager and Blackberry all attached to his Batman-like utility belt and is well renowned for always being on time and organized. Chris currently has a patent pending for a head set version of the belt (resembling the two can beer holding helmet seen at some local sporting events) so he can be hands-free while remaining well connected.

To his credit, the addition of Chris (a.k.a. Pepe Sanchez) to the Dirty line-up has propelled the band from being a solid, up and coming local band into the forefront of the Charlotte music scene. Pepe is the backbone of the band providing a soulful voice while laying down the funky rhythm many long for week in and week out. You might have seen Chris performing live throughout Charlotte and the surrounding areas in his predecessor band, Tube Junction, a fair dinkum group of guys in their on right.

Chris enjoys basketball, tennis, golf, soccer, and most outdoor activities, including hiking and camping. Currently, there is some unexplained migration of the indigenous mountain goat population from the Appalachian Mountains. Coincidence? Some biologists think not.

Pepe Sanchez began playing piano at an early age and has played a variety of instruments throughout the years. When he isn't propped behind a desk or playing music, you might catch Pepe watching TV sporting events, or Bob Ross painting on PBS, which may explain his punctuality.
