LVJ introduces us to “Polka on the Pyro-Trombone”

We have an adundance of musical talent in the Sierra Foothills, along with a thriving arts and culture scene. I’ve gotten to know Louis Valentine Johnson, an accomplished classical guitarist. I’ve seen “LVJ” perform at InConcert Sierra (this program was sensational), and I own some of his CDs. He has performed all over the world.

On his Facebook page this weekend, Louis found this: A video of Valentin Guerin, 25, an aspiring French trombonist who came up with a crazy new invention: he calls it the ‘Pyro-Trombone.’ Guerin invented the instrument himself and owns the patent. Thanks for the laugh Louis!
