Local Teen Guitarist Will Open Woodstock 2009
JACKSONVILLE BEACH, FL -- Conrad Oberg is preparing for his trip to New York.
It doesn't take much for Conrad to draw a crowd. Just give him a trunk, a parking lot and a guitar.
"I can't really ever recall a time when I felt nervous during a gig or when I'm about to go onstage," Oberg said.
And that spirit will serve him well as he opens Woodstock 2009, in front of thousands of people.
"I'm pretty honored to be doing it. When I first found out about it, it was a complete surprise," Oberg says.
The Mellow Mushroom pizza shop is paying for his trip to New York. With its Woodstock style, it seemed the perfect fit. Instead of working on pizza, workers painted his car with flowers and peace signs for Obert's ride to Woodstock.
