Year performed at 4 Peaks:
Central Oregon boasts a number of talented musicians, but one local violinist has formed a band with talent of all ages.
13-year-old CJ Neary has been playing the violin for most of his life and his talents haven’t gone unnoticed. In just the last few years, Neary has been been featured in television spots, the TedX stage at just 11 years old and that’s just a few of the teen’s recent accomplishments.
His latest project has been starting a band and while the group has only been playing together as the ‘CJ Neary Band’ for a few months, in that short span of time they’ve planned at various venues and even recorded an album.
Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan sat down with the “CJ Neary Band” to talk their recent formation and brand new album.
