"I remember learning to whistle when I was four," Sbanotto says. "I don't think at childhood I was any kind of supernatural whistler. I think I just whistled a lot. I know because my dad said it was very annoying."
"I was in cathedral choir at JBU, and after rehearsal, I would sit and have my own little whistling rehearsal," he said. "Recorded in cathedrals and performed all over Ireland and I was like, 'I love this! I loved performance whistling."
Sbanotto said, "I get phone calls now. People asking will I whistle for this or whistle for that. Conferences, luncheons and fundraisers where they want something different and whistling is a little different."
