Esteban to Perform in Buffalo

By Joyce Kryszak

Buffalo, NY – Guitar sensation Esteban gives his first live performance in Buffalo tonight at Rockwell Hall. The classical guitarist is known the world over for his virtuosity and eclectic style. He created an industry from his talent, with chart topping CDs, instructional videos and guitar sales. But the talent and skills that made it all possible were nearly taken away forever in a horrible accident. Esteban visited our studios where WBFO's Joyce Kryszak talked with him about his climb back from tragedy to fame.

Esteban knew from the time he was eight years old that playing guitar was his life. He spent decades practicing and pursuing his art until he became one of the best. But it took only an instant for a drunk driver to nearly take it all away. As we know, however, his story, by no means ended there.
