" Evan Christian, the leader of a great trio, is one of the most versatile guitarists I have ever seen." Christian's flamboyant guitar work is a mix of Jimi Hendrix and Prince and he has the stage presence to match. He played the guitar with his teeth and was exceptional at playing solos with the guitar behind his head. It would have seemed appropriate for him to burn his guitar at the end of the show." www.onmilwaukee.com Evan Christian is one of the most sought after solo musicians in the United States and will embark on a world tour of 65 countries starting in July of 2008!
