What can you say, big ,sexy ,stylish ,humbled ,and graceful. Few musicians possess the talents of Gene GoodMan. Gene is a performer with a wide array of abilities consisting of one handed guitar solos behind his head, to rapping some of the most iconic hip-hop songs ever. His use of unconventional synthesizers live transforms his guitar into steel drums, entire horn sections, pianos, and saxophones ,while turning his vocals into robots, megaphones, hard-tune ,and anything else he pretty much wants. His only limitation is his imagination which seems to be endless.
