Tony's Interest in me
After the Flying Fingers Competition was over, there was a strong urge to get my name out there in the guitar world. I was on Facebook one night, and I received a message from Tony MacAlpine's agent. Tony and his band we're making a North American tour and they were going to be coming through Omaha, NE.
Tony's Manager Contacted Me
Tony was one of the most kind hearted people I have ever met!
Invited me to have dinner with him
After Tony got set up and sound checked, him and the band hung out at the venue and had some food. I was sitting at a table in the bar. I didn't want to be that weird guy who follows a band around and asks really weird questions and freaks out the musicians, so I laid low by myself and just hung out.
Out of nowhere Tony came up to my table where I was sitting alone and said "Hey man, you don't have to sit alone come on over and have some food with me." COOLEST. THING. EVER.
Tony Was GRACIOUS Enough To Recommend ME!
Amazing Musical Experience
Needless to say... The whole experience was amazing and I am forever grateful that I got the opportunity to Jam with Tony MacAlpine live onstage in my home town of Omaha, NE!
I look forward to having an opportunity to jam many other successful guitar players in the near future...but if I don't get to have the opportunity, I will still be happy with everything I have gotten so far and the experiences I have gotten.
