I shouldn't even be wasting my time trying to defend giving my son the opportunity to share his talent publicly, but I can't help myself. Apparently some people have far too much time on their hands and love negative attention to take the time to go on an on about an 11-yr old playing at local pub in Lewiston, and making extremely inaccurate assumptions about his parents. Justin's family supports him 100%. We are all originally from the L/A area and found Pedros to be a warm, welcoming environment that had open mic night at a reasonable hour. Most places start at 8 or 9 which is too late. Justin is a well-rounded child; an honor roll student at Scarborough Middle school, he plays basketball and does snowboarding. I will continue to bring Justin to these open mic nights as long as he's still having fun. We are doing our best to guide him carefully. Justin will be on the Channel 6 - 207 program this coming Monday night February 27th at 7 p.m. Watch for more on his talents and his incredible guitar instructor Tom Dee from Portland, Maine. We are extremely proud parents and have no regrets. Thank you all for your positive words.
