The hardest working child in show business...

...would have to be 11-year-old "Mojo Myles" Mancuso, shown here performing a tribute to James Brown. He plays the bass and rythym guitar tracks into a loop station pedal for the first round, then improvises on top of them with lead guitar, keyboard, and/or saxophone. Meanwhile, his father backs him on drums. Myles, who is self-taught, has been performing in and around New York City with his own band, Mojo Myles and the Blue Ryders, since he was nine. He has appeared with guitar legend Les Paul (who probably taught him a thing or two about overdubbing, which he basically invented), as well as Levon Helm (formerly of The Band), Kate Taylor, and Bill Perry.

Oh, and he has a website, where you are likely to see more of... his Mojo workin.'
