Ralph Giunta The One Man Band
This past weekend, crafty folks from all over came to our humble corner of the U.S. They traveled to the Miami Convention Center to show off their goods to the America's Got Talent producers at the season 9 tryouts. But it was one of our own musicians that stole the spotlight in a big way. Palm Beach County live music staple Jason Cardinal had been preparing for his tryout for some time, and it looks like having his eyes on the prize might be paying off.
It's important to inform you that Jason is not your typical tiki bar acoustic cover act. He's a walking one-man band. The guy plays four instruments at once: guitar, an electronic drum kit with two pedals (one for bass, one for snare), harmonica, and a crash symbol he hits with drumstick that's attached to a motorcycle glove on his strumming hand. Say what? Oh yeah, and all that while he's belting his little heart out. What Jason produces is a true performance, not just a sing-a-long. Cardinal hopes this will catch the eyes of the AGT judges and help push him into the spotlight.
