This is Jeremy Lister, singer-songwriter. He toured with our son in the "TEN OUT OF TENN" tour in December of 2009, and was most recently on NBC's hit TV show "SING OFF". He and his group, the "Street Corner Symphony" made it to 2nd place, and is about to start a tour with Ben Folds.
Here is a cool video of our boy Andrew Belle, playing in the back of the TOT tour bus, along with Jeremy Lister, Matthew Perryman Jones and Andy Davis [link]
