​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Welcome to the Artist Gallery

        We first discovered Jacob Tolliver when we ran across his infamous hardware store performance of "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," the video (below) which is now famous on the internet. We were so impressed we had to watch it several times, admiring not only the amazing skill going on, but the utter joy that Jacob radiates while performing.  Jacob was giving great performances at the age of 17 and showed all the skill and maturity of a performer with decades of experience. It's a true honor to welcome Jacob Tolliver to the Artist Gallery!
