“When I was a kid,” Emmanuel remembers, “I wanted to be in show business. Now, I just want to be in the happiness business. I make music, and you get happy. That’s a good job.” Talent buyer Justin Smith said, “There’s no more exciting way for us to kick off 2022 than to be able to feature this virtuoso. Tommy is arguably the best acoustic guitar player on the planet. What an honor to have him grace the Showroom Stage.”
