I've been helping Kevin with his progress on guitar for a good couple of years now and he's doing amazingly well. As if that's not enough, he's also got a really nice voice with good control of both his vocal pitching and guitar playing. The makings of a future star!
The super-efficient sound engineer wasn't expecting an act like this unfortunately(!) so a few minutes of re-arranging the mic set-up (so that Kevin and I shared a vocal mic, plus an additional mic for his guitar). Kevin basically sang and played while I accompanied on a DI'ed guitar plus backing vocals while kneeling down to reach the shared vocal mic! All part of the fun with these sort of events and sound-guy did a great job in turning things around for us. The crowd, though earlyish and a bit chilli, enjoyed the songs, some joining in while children danced, and many made a point of saying afterwards what a talent Kevin is, especially for one so young. Look out for him in the future!
