There is where he quickly began to shine being featured as Mel Waiters’ “Young Gun” and “Phenomenal Guitar Player” capturing every moment he was called on for his electric solos, he became a youtube sensation and one of the most memorable parts of the show.

When asked how he would describe himself to his fans he responded, “I am a hard-working, humble, and lovable musician. I have a strong passion for perfection. I love to joke around and make people laugh, but when it comes to music there is nothing I love more than entertaining my fans and sending them home knowing they got their moneys worth.”
