Competitive Whistler Makes Beautiful Music

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – You’ve heard of whistling while you work, but one New York musician whistles FOR his work.

His name is Steve Herbst and he’s a competitive whistler who has been blowing beautifully since age 7.

He ain’t just whistlin’ Dixie. Herbst comes from a musical family and says he first tuned in on it after seeing his Dad puckering up as a kid.

Now, Herbst is well into his whistling career, and has recorded his own whistling CD, made commercial appearances and won the International Whistling Entertainer of the Year Award for the last three years.

Herbst prepares for competitions and concerts by dehydrating, lip balming, and, he admits, “by always knowing where the restrooms are before a big whistling event.”

He’s also hopes to raise the profile of his chosen instrument by eventually having his instrumental whistling seat in an orchestra.
