I finally found him!
We went to high school together and he was THE most awesome stringed-instrument player I've ever known (sorry CH...You haven't really played for me, so how can I know?)
Anyway, he was one of those kids who traveled all over the country, entering fiddle competitions and winning, long before American Idol/America's Got Talent/Star Search were even around.
For about 2 months he's been on my mind and I've wondered, "Whatever happened to Joey McKenzie?" I think it's because we tend to have lots of musical folks in our lives...pianists, cellists, tubaists (check out smithforpresident.com), drummers, guitarists, singers, and such....
A quick Zaba Search earlier on revealed nothing, as I didn't even know where to consider his locale in the US now.
But, today was an exception! A birthday came up that was within rage.
Then, a website.
Then, well, tah-dah!!!
He lives in Texas and runs his own music shop, fiddle lessons, and band!
Here's the website!
I can't legally copy the video they have attached to the site, but here's where you can go:
Yea! See, a little work goes a long way!!!
