510JAZZ is not strictly Bossa. We like to explore the boundaries of Jazz, while infusing the soul of this beautiful music born in Brazil more than 50 years ago.
We strive to bring new sounds to music lovers, which feature our own original compositions – performed by talented musicians from all over the Bay Area.
Fremont natives John Vargas and David Vargas (aka “D-Varg”) collaborated to compose 16 original songs that celebrate the genre of Bossa Nova. Our compositions are inspired by the great works of composers Antonio Carlos Jobim, Ivan Lins and Celso Fonseca.
In the spirit of of legendary producers Quincy Jones and Sergio Mendes, we strive to bring talented musicians from the Bay Area to one studio, to produce new original hits. John Vargas (a student of classic bossa nova) is executive producer, bandleader, lead vocalist. D-Varg (an accomplished rap and hiphop artist) is producer, engineer and rapper -- infusing a new groove into our mix.

Tony Song (guitar)
Mark Rickey (keyboards)
