KINGMAN — Officer Eddie Espinoza was on his routine patrol Saturday when he decided to take a walk through the Route 66 Craft and Gift Show at Locomotive Park.
He struck up a conversation with members of Kristi Thompson and the Phat Chantz Band about one of their Les Paul guitars.
Next thing he knew, Espinoza, a musician of 10 years and Kingman Police officer of five years, was holding down a captive audience.
“I struck up a conversation about the guitar,” he said. “Next thing I know, we started jammin’ from there.”
