I have won the Sam Ash/Steve Vai Best in Shred contest and will open for Steve Vai at the Castle Theater in Bloomington, Illinois on November 2nd. I will play one tune before Steve goes on. Sam Ash will do a formal announcement this week. Here is my winning Instagram video that got me into the finals http://instagram.com/p/efcYVkR8qb/
