Kyle, 16, attended the very first PavohJAMS Open Mic hosted at the Waltham Boys & Girls Club. A former club member, it was the opportunity to perform that drew him back to the club on this Friday evening. He played guitar and sang to warm applause and accolades from his peers and other attendees. Inspired, Kyle joined the club again that night and became a regular music program participant and intern. Always improving his skills, Kyle performed at all of Pavoh's events, participated in Waltham Idol competitions and worked tech and sound at most events. Last spring, Pavoh hired Kyle to help with sound at the Not Your Average Joe's in Waltham Concert on the Patio Series. Kyle's story epitomizes Pavoh's ability to offer accessible music opportunities that reach creative kids - giving them an outlet to express themselves.
