I took a couple of guitars down to an open Mic that a buddy was hosting and let some folks play around on them. We had a lot of fun.

The guy on the right is CBN member Cris Portillo. This boy can sing his ass off!

Seriously, Wes. You never quite know what to expect going to an open mic but everyone there that night were very talented musicians. Cris stuck to rhythm and didn't do anything overly fancy on the guitar but his singing really blew me away right from the start. The other guy (Matt) can play the hell out of a guitar as well. Don't know if he ever sings.
