About the Show ----- 

Everyone has a story.  Your stories matter.  

Keith Alessi had a story.  

He was neither an actor nor a musician, and his journey to the stage was a highly improbable one. But this show is a reflection of the power and purpose our stories can have when we share them with the world in an authentic and honest way.

The grassroots sound of the banjo lures you in and brings you back to a simpler time in life, as Keith takes you on the journey of his unique personal story about how music was the catalyst to ultimately saving his life.

A heartwarming, true story of transformation, this show is like a homecoming, and has captivated audiences internationally.

Everyone has a story.

What’s yours?
