Ann Arbor's Violin Monster Appears On National TV

Violin Monster
Lisa Barry

He's been seen playing his violin around the streets of Ann Arbor for years, and now the "Violin Monster" is going national appearing on "America's Got Talent" on NBC.

I spoke with him about the experience and he shares what he hopes to gain from the national exposure...

Hear #AnnArbor's @ViolinMonster speak (yes he speaks!) about his appearance on television — 89.1 WEMU (@WEMU891) June 8, 2016

The Violin Monster even has a local beer named after him but travels around the country performing especially in the winter months (when he migrates!).

If you miss his appearance on the show Tuesday evening, you can see Ann Arbor's Violin Monster on NBC'S website after it airs.
