Saturday night of Mothers' Day weekend we headed down to Woonsocket, Rhode Island to Chan's Restaurant to see the one, the only - Johnny A! If you haven't heard Johnny play, you do NOT know what you're missing! This was probably the sixth or seventh time seeing him in person, and as usual, the house was hoppin'. While Chris was capturing some great images, I was up on my feet because I couldn't bear to sit while having so much auditory fun! Johnny's music is heaven to my ears.
Johnny's schedule takes him all around the world, and this show was slated to be his last for the year. Word is that he and the band are hunkering down to record more awesome jazz/blues originals, after having already produced three awesome albums -- "Get Inside", "One November Night", and "Sometime Tuesday Morning."
Being a 'newbie' at the iPhone thingy, it totally skipped my mind to record a video clip (duh!), but there are many available that you really should take a moment to check out!
Any words I may write could never do him justice, so suffice it to say there is a lot of press (here) on Johnny already that will knock your socks off! And DO check out Johnny's YouTube channel, American Guitarist TV! We love the way he's interacting with his fans and letting us know him more personally.
So here are a few of our favorite images from the night.
Your guys are awesome, and we LOVE your style, Johnny A! Thanks for entertaining us SO well!
