    8 year old prohibited from performing in nightclubs

    Tallan Latz, an eight year old can play his guitar at festivals but not at nightclubs or taverns per the state of Wisconsin.

    Tallan is a blues guitar prodigy. He's played in bars and clubs, including the House of Blues in Chicago, and even jammed with Les Paul and Jackson Browne. He has a summer of festivals scheduled and has drawn interest from venues worldwide.

    Re: 8 year old prohibited from performing in nightclubs

    I read the article and it sounds like a bunch of older musicians can't handle the fact that the kid is that good. If he continues to go to school and is being fairly compensated for his performances I don't see what the problem is with letting him play in bars and clubs. I am sure his parents don't just drop him off and leave him at a bar. Even at 8 years old the kid should have a right to earn some money if he can.
