Performing live with the Chris Canas Band at the KVBA Blues Challenge.

When I was young I wanted to learn to play the guitar – mostly because my father played guitar in a band and I wanted to be able to hang out with him. But learning to play the guitar was a struggle because my fingers could not bend far enough to make cords. My father suggested I try the bass guitar. So I studied the bass day and night until I was good enough to play in my father’s band. Then the time came – I finally got a chance to play in my father’s band. I was very excited for this opportunity, but after the gig, my dad made me go home instead of letting me hang out with him and the rest of the band. I very sad about that, but I continued to study and play the bass and then I started to get lot of calls from people who wanted me to play in their bands. The rest is history!
