Rock Guitar Virtuoso
Exceptionally gifted at playing lead guitar, he could easily take the stage next to any of the industries best in rock. Wards playing abilities border on the insane, thus his childhood nickname Brian "Psycho" Ward has appropriately stuck with him and shows that this guitarist will masterfully play licks, where others can't or won't, and it doesn't stop there.......... Having a wireless guitar and a nickname of "Psycho" it's no wonder the follow-spot tech gets paid extra! Brian will leave the lights of the stage while playing and walk amongst the wide-eyed and admiring crowd giving them an up close and personal view at what lead guitar slaying is all about. This kind of personal attention creates long-term memories for crowd-goers and keeps them coming back with a fierce loyalty. Pumped up fans and audiences look forward with anticipation to seeing Brian perform and love being a part of the extreme energy. (courtesy of A&M Talent agency)
