Bobby Enriquez

Bobby Enriquez was known as “the Wildman” because of his hyper-piano playing. Enriquez, a virtuoso who had been learning his skills from four years old, was a professional pianist by the age of 14. He played in Manila, Hong Kong and Honolulu during the 1960s. In fact, he was Don Ho’s musical director. In the early 1970s, he arrived on the mainland and toured with Richie Cole between 1980-1981. He made his first recording in 1981. He was a well-known musician who produced eight albums for GNP/Crescendo between 1981 and 1985. Enriquez’s use of too many song quotes in his solos, some of which were very silly, made him not a well-known artist. However, his technical skills and his ability to think quickly were very impressive. Enriquez also recorded for Portrait (1987), and a 1990 date on Evidence for the Japanese Paddle Wheel label.
