It’s a case of total confusion most of the time in Key West Lolx’s 1000. I got scooped up off Duval street because of my resemblance to the famous Star Wars character Cewbacca. Then when they heard I new every Solo and had been studying Solos for over 30 years they were beside themselves. HeHeHeHeHe the look on their faces when they realized I was takiing about GUITAR SOLOS Not Han Solo and his family lol.
Nov 8th NEPA Benefit Concert To HELP my son 10yr old Nicky Sorbelli with his epic battle to Kick His Blood Cancers Ass still needs donation baskets and raffle items. PLS SHARE
OMG these bands are awesome. This is gong to be a GREAT MUSICAL CALL TO ARMS for NEPA and for the GREATEST CAUSE IN THE WORLD – so my little boy can continue to battle his blood cancer and my wife and I can afford to stay by his side over the course of the next several months while he continues his chemotherapy.
Aside from the donations and raffle items that all my friends are throwing in, I will be giving up many of my personal items to put into the raffle – like a bunch of music collectibles & autographs & records, as well as a few of my guitars. An all black USA Strat, a vintage cherry Dean Gran Sport, a few work horse guitars like my Reverend Charger HBFM and Nylon string guitar, and more.
While on break from chemotherapy at Miami Childrens Hospital we headed back home in Key West & got on the water as soon as we could. Friend Tim of Commander Hawk Fishing Charters made sure we had the best adventure ever!! Here is a video of after we caught a bunch of snappers and Nicky caught a 7.5 ft shark – Nicky learning to navigate our way home from the fishing trip – driving the fishing boat!!

So here is one take of a song that I had written in my sleep for my son Nicky Sorbelli . I call it “Wake Up Little Lion”
Greetings!! Wayne Sorbelli here of Island Guitar and Music Lessons & Sales Studio in Key West.
I’m at the Miami Children’s Hospital with my son Nicky where he is battling cancer, T Lymphoblastic Lymphoma.
Last night before going to bed I had a melody stuck in my head, a vocal melody and ukulele chord progression – when I woke up this morning in the hospital next to Nicky, the song was in my head with lyrics and all. . So I grabbed my ukulele and a coffee and headed outside of the hospital to find a private spot to use my iPhone6 camera to quickly record it before I forget it ( which happens to me all the time lol).
I never thought I could love anything or anyone as much as Jamie Maniskas Sorbelli when I met her over 20 years ago, but when I look at this picture I know I was wrong.
Love defies logic. Two plus two is not always four. Time and space bends for love. How can I love something “MORE than the MOST” more than 100%? I do. I love these kids and Jamie more than the most. Way more than ALL or 100%. This is math for Gods not humans I guess. Now to spend less time figuring out how or why and just enjoy all this LOVE!
Here is my :58 second prayer song “Ukulele Side Blues” dedicated to NICKY’s fightjng cancer.
Nicky used a zillagram worth of energy on his health bar meter yesterday during NICKY SORBELLI VS. CANCER.
He got two bags of blood (hemoglobin) and a bag of platlets.
This morning when the sickness (nasea) hit him it did a bit harder than usual (typical of cancer and chemotherapy) but hen the cancer tried a sneaky and cowardly move, and tried to sneak up on him while he was sleeping – Nicky was ready for it and used a special move – an ancient secret prayer spell that a Super Hero showed me a long time ago.
As Nicky’s mind got stronger and he held his head high and his chin up and his arm up in the air middle fiber extended in a straight line – he looked the cancer right in its scared face and declared aloud – get out cancer – go back to hell where you came from you freeking wimp!!!
Then like a cross between an old Jedi night, and a young spider man ninja type, he does this super hero move with his arm and faster than the eye can see -then
Nicky’s color came back! He cracked a smile, turned on the PS4 video game system and says “Dad, I love You” then gets on with his gaming like nothing happened.
I’m like,,??? Holly Snizt WTF – he is so my hero – what a warrior!!!!
I LOVE YOU NICKY.
HEY CANCER “FU(K U I WON’T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME”!!!!!!! Inspired by Rage Against The Machine!!! The rainbow that showed up during these photos, really validate my feelings towards cancers in general, physical political social etc.
This Rage Against The Machine song “Killing In The Name” is DEDICATED TO MY SON NICKY SORBELLI. HEY CANCER “FU(K YOU I WON’T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME!!!
Chin up in the air, two clenched fists raised up high with middle fingers hard, Fu(k you cancer! We look you in your bully face, right in you eyes, and laugh, and taunt, and say boldly – Fu(k You, We Won’t Do What You Tell Us. You are powerless over the spell of LOVE and AFRAID of our positve thinking and forward moving thoughts – well FU$K you and be gone!!!!
