Meet Johnny
Johnny Marines a native New Yorker from the Lower East Side, has been a monumental force in the meteoric rise to stardom for the Latin American group Aventura and more recently, Bachata star, Romeo Santos, who brought Johnny on board to continue being his manager.



Romeo Santos launched his solo career in 2011, with the critically acclaimed “Formula Vol. 1”, which is Five times platinum and had five #1 hits (the first artist do to so in nearly 16 years). Romeo won the Billboard Award for the Latin Album of the year, MTV VMA Award as Best Latino Music Artist, 2 Premio Juventud Awards, 3 Latin Billboard Awards including Album of the Year, and was nominated for an Alma Award as Favorite Male Music Artist and an American Grammy for Best Tropical Album. His Formula Vol. 1 Tour was sold out domestically and internationally, visiting over 60 cities and 3 sold out shows at the World’s Most Famous Arena, Madison Square Garden, with the production of a DVD reliving this moment in history, “The King Stays King”, on sale. In September 2013, Romeo and Johnny were invited to the White House again for the Musica Latina in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month.

In February 2014, Romeo released his second solo album, Formula Vol. 2, has been awarded by RIAA with a Diamond certification and has won 3 Soberano Awards, 5 Premio Juventud Awards, 6 Premio lo Nuestro Awards, had a record-breaking 21 nominations for the Latin Billboard Awards in 2015, taking home 10 of them, and has won the 2015 American Billboard Award for Top Latin Artist. The first leg of his Formula Vol. 2 World Tour was sold out, including two historic nights at Yankee Stadium, making him the first Latin artist to ever headline and sell out a show at the world’s most prestigious ballpark joining the ranks of Madonna and Paul McCartney on the very short list of solo artists to ever achieve such a feat. And in 2015, Santos’ global appeal has reached an unparalleled level, selling out stadiums across the world from the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Colombia, and Argentina, to Spain and across Europe. Romeo closed out his second sold-out leg of the Formula Vol. 2 World Tour with three sold-out nights at the Barclays Center, the first Latin artist to do so. The success of Marines’ work ethic can be measured by the Romeo Santos’ rapid growth, which continues to extend into new markets today, far from his humble South Bronx roots. Just this year, Johhny has sat on the “Hola, can you hear me” panel at the 2015 Latin Billboard Music conference and the Managers: The start of big business panel at the 2015 Revolt Music Conference, he also has been selected as a “Latin Power Player” by Billboard for being one of the 20 most influential people in Latin music. The feature article is scheduled to be in the August 2015 Billboard magazine.

Before entering the music business, Johnny was an NYPD sergeant. During his tenure as a police officer, which included the height of the crack epidemic in the 90s, Johnny made and assisted in more than 1,000 arrests. Throughout his career, Marines was awarded 12 Excellent Police Duty medals as well as 4 Meritorious Police Duty medals for 4 separate Bribery arrests.

Despite all of his success, Johnny Marines has not forgotten his humble roots he came from. Johnny has dedicated a large portion of his time, effort and resources to giving back to his community. In conjunction with Aventura, Marines has co-funded toy drives in New York and the Dominican Republic; he has donated turkeys for hundreds of needy families during the holidays; several times a year, Johnny and his mother ship barrels of food to the Dominican Republic and school supplies to low income families to provide them with the tools they need to focus and acquire a quality education; and he has helped coordinate Aventura’s hospital visits to sick children throughout the Metropolitan Area. Also, Johnny has helped to fund and to create a non-profit, Lower East Side Sports Academy, in the Lower East Side of Manhattan which recently partnered with the NYC Police Athletic League and has over 300 young people participating in its third season this summer.  Johnny is in the process of establishing the Johnny Marines Blessings Foundation, which is established to foster, support, and fund educational advancement initiatives within New York City.

More recently, Johnny has begun sharing his story. Johnny communicates how he came to be the manager of the most influential Latin American group and now solo artist of our generation. Johnny speaks sincerely of his struggles and mistakes not only growing up in the Lower East Side, but also of the impediments he has had to overcome once in the music industry.  Marines lectures on the importance of diligence and always putting your best work forward, and relays his messages in ways that people from all walks of life can relate. Johnny’s story is a true testament to the American Dream, that with hard work, dedication and motivation, anything truly is possible. Johnny has spoken on numerous occasions at Harvard, Columbia, Syracuse, Lehman College, and St. John’s University.

Humilde, tímido y agradeciéndole a Dios al final de cada frase, ese es Jordy Quintero, un joven cantante procedente de la ciudad de Guayaquil, Ecuador. De tez oscura, sonrisa amplia y mirada inocente, Jordy quien imita a la perfección al cantante Romeo Santos, nos ganó el corazón desde el primer momento por su simpatía y naturalidad.

Considerado por sus fans, un aún mejor cantante que Romeo, este talentoso muchacho se hizo famoso en todo Ecuador por su participación en el Reality Show “Yo Me Llamo”. Jordy, mejor conocido por todos como “El Romeo Santos Ecuatoriano”, se encuentra de visita en Estados Unidos realizando su primera gira internacional donde recorre las principales ciudades del país.

“La gente aquí, me ha dado un gran apoyo incondicional. Es un privilegio y gracias a Dios porque él me dio el talento y el carisma”

nos dice feliz este ecuatoriano de tan solo 21 años.  Quintero comenzó a cantar desde niño y se hizo famoso entre sus amigos y en la escuela por cantar y bailar las canciones de Michael Jackson, hasta que en el 2001, escucho por primera vez la música del famoso grupo de Bachata “Aventura” y se aprendió todas sus canciones.

“Todos me decían pero tu cantas igual que Romeo y los amigos y familiares me empezaron a llamar Aventura y luego Jordy Romeo”.

El éxito y la popularidad del este artista coincide con la fuerza que el ritmo dominicano, se ha expandido por toda Centro y Suramérica, y donde intérpretes como Prince Royce y Romeo Santos se encuentran en los primeros lugares en la preferencia del público.  Jordan nos comenta un poco apenado,

“aun no conozco a Romeo Santos personalmente pero espero con ansias que cuando sea la voluntad de Dios no podemos ver y le pueda decir cuanto lo admiro”

Por terceros, Quintero ya escucho que Romeo conoce de su existencia y que aprueba su trabajo. Con numerosas canciones propias, a Jordy le gusta también interpretar salsa, pero en todas las presentaciones la gente aclama que cante las canciones de Romeo. La similitud en el tono de voz es realmente asombrada y sería imposible reconocer la diferencia sino fuera por las evidentes diferentes físicas de este Romeo de la costa ecuatoriana con el Romeo original, que es un poco más bajo de estatura y con la piel más oscura que el famoso bachatero.

Este nuevo talento es representando por empresarios dominicanos y existen grandes planes de promoción entre los que se encuentran una gira por toda la Republica Dominicana, País que Quintero considera ya su segunda patria, por la bendición de conocer y enamorarse perdidamente del ritmo de la bachata.

Jordy Romeo o el Romeo Ecuatoriano cuenta con un talento evidente, gran carisma y un ángel muy especial que llama la atención de los fans de la bachata. El reto de este largo camino hacia la fama, será demostrar que es un cantante con luz propia más que el imitador de una estrella internacional

As well as bachata artists Luis Vargas, Anthony Santos, reggarton artist Tego Calderon and Latin Grammy Nominated Jazz Musician and former Yankee, Bernie Williams all took the stage with the bachatero.
