Johnny A. w/ The Holly & Evan Band
January 12, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Thursday, January 12th
Doors at 7pm, show at 8pm
Current Guitarist for The Yardbirds
His debut “Sometime Tuesday Morning” did something an instrumental guitar record never doesit became a major hit at radio. Aggressive touring and several critically acclaimed releases gained the admiration of the world’s top guitarists from Jeff Beck to BB King and led to a myriad of major appearances including Eric Clapton’s Crossroads, the Montreal Jazz Festival and Tokyo’s Fuji Rock Festival.
Although an instrumentalist, Johnny thinks like a singer as he plays, composes and improvises. “I’m always interested in dynamics and tone far more than the amount of notes played,” Johnny explains. That attention to detail led to a Gibson Johnny A. Signature Model guitar that has become one of the company’s most successful and popular models. Johnny A. is currently touring to support of his most recent album “Driven”.
Opening the show are local favorites The Holly And Evan Band, who can best be described as Blues based Alt Rock tinged with Jazz and Soul.
