Born in Dreieich, just outside of Frankfurt Germany, guitarist Michael Jost (pronounced ‘yoast’), found his way to the bohemian Venice Beach boardwalk, in Los Angeles California, where he now lives and makes music.
Next month we will be lucky enough to welcome Michael to Lennox Head where he will perform his contemporary/classical flamenco style guitar at Shorty’s.
