Legendary Guitarist Gene Bertoncini on campus

Legendary guitarist Gene Bertoncini, along with WMU professor of bass Tom Knific, performed and gave masterclasses on Sept. 27th at the Dalton Center.  Together, Knific and Bertoncini treated the community to their almost E.S.P.-like connection on stage.  Bertoncini, now 74, plays with the youth and energy of someone half his age and is known for his long time duo collaboration with bassist Michael Moore.  Bertoncini also spent years in the orchestras on many TV shows including Merv Griffin, Jack Paar and the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.
