American soldier Jerry Nenycz has been known to swoop in stealth-like, with his guitar in-hand, capture your undivided attention and disarm all potential naysayers with his heartfelt original tunes and self-styled cover songs.
And if, in this endeavor, there are any unforeseen complications â€” which are always a possibility â€” he will simply employ his secret weapon. One boyish grin from Nenycz, who seriously resembles an Army Ken doll, and mission accomplished. He quickly wins you over with a song and a smile.
