WHEN AC/DC tribute band Hells Bells take to the stage at the Leopold Hotel in Bicton, they will be playing with a young guitar prodigy.
Landsdale resident Jayden Tatasciore’s (9) talents have been recognised by the likes of Guns N’ Roses, with his Facebook page boasting more than 50,000 likes.
Jayden will take to the stage in Bicton with the tribute band as well as his mentor Sandra Calvezzi in her band In 2 Deep on June 23.
Fabio Tatasciore said his son started playing guitar when he was five years old and advanced quickly.
“We set up the Facebook page at the end of 2016 or the start of 2017 and he started busking around the same time,” he said.
“The social media stuff took off after the Guns N’ Roses page shared of one our videos and it had a million views, it just went crazy.
“He is a shy kid but he loves getting on stage and making people happy.
“I’m not sure where the talent came from, I guess he was born with it but he has worked hard.”
Hells Bells manager and guitarist Mal Osborne said it was “unnerving” how good Jayden was at playing guitar.
“He met us and started jamming, he had obviously done his homework because he was good,” he said.
“It’s not just a novelty, he can actually play really well, I’ve done youth work and youth music and Jayden is the best I’ve seen.”
