If you're like everyone else, including myself, then you've either watched or binge watched the Netflix original series Stranger Things
. If so, then you'll recognize the adorable face of Gaten Matarazzo
who stars as Dustin Henderson in the series.
Now, what you might not know about him is that he's not only an actor but also an aspiring rock star. That's right, this young star is part of a band by the name of Work In Progress
How damn cute is that?! Work In Progress are Gaten, his older sister, younger brother, and friends. Here's Gaten himself introducing you to the gang:
He began his career on the Broadway stage before landing the part he has today as a bad ass teen who fights demogorgons on the regular and he's only 15 years old. I wish I had that much going on when I was his age! It seems that he's not alone when it comes to being talented in both acting and singing. Most of the young cast share the same talents!
It appears that the young star has been singing for most of his life so it's no surprise that he'd grow up with the urge to become a rock star someday.
About a month ago Work In Progress played a sold out show at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, New Jersey. That's pretty impressive, if you ask me, for a relatively new band that plays cover songs. But then again, most up and coming bands don't have a popular teen actor as one of their members. You can check them out here, and yes we are aware that the quality of the video and sound isn't the greatest but they did warn us after all. I mean, their name is Work In Progress for a reason and we are all for it!
