In Menlo Park, California, Victor gave a clinic with JD Blair (drummer). There were about 30 people in the audience on folding chairs at the Riekes Center. I sat about eight feet from Victor and had a terrific experience listening to him play and rap for about 2.5 hours. The playing was spontanteous, but obviously phenomenal. Victor spent some time discussing his thumb/finger technique, but also spoke philosophically on music and nature. He and JD were very approachable and laid back. I consider myself very fortunate and urge anyone to try to take advantage of seeing and hearing Victor in a forum such as this.
