Tunsey Tuesday

Tallan has talent…

That is Tallan "T-Man" Latz, in 2007 at age 7, performing the Hendrix tune Voodoo Child, accompanied by the band Real Deal. Tallan was born September 22, 1999 in Elkhorn, WI. His first musical instrument was a drum set he got at the age of three. T-Man began playing acoustic guitar at four and soon graduated to electric instruments.

At five years old Tallan saw a video of Joe Satriani, and told his parents "That's what I want to do." By the time he reached eight years of age, he had played on-stage with Jackson Browne and Les Paul.

At nine, T-Man got his shot on Americas Got Talent…

Tallan got the boot by the show, but attracted a hardcore following. He is eleven years old now and still hitting it strong. Here he is in July at the Prairie Dog Bluesfest, rocking hard with Guitar Shorty.

And a fitting close to the show, and this blog post…

Any doubts who this born-with-talent kid has been studying?

Been a few years since I heard him play; he just gets better and better!
