ABOUT THE ARTIST
For nearly 20 years Johnny A. has traveled the world effortlessly gliding through, bending and blending, musical genres to deliver his own unique style of guitar instrumental guitar music.
To quote the London Free Press (Johnny A. is…) “a musician who resists easy categorization and that’s always cool by us.”
And as JAZZIZ Magazine so perfectly stated, “Johnny A. has eclectic musical vision and the skills to realize it…A.’s music is both accessible and sophisticated.”
Never content with complacency, and always up for a challenge, Johnny again takes an adventurous musical left turn to present his distinct, instrumental guitar approach coupled with his “live-looping” expertise for the very first time in a completely “solo” intimate atmosphere. With strong emphasis on melody and arrangements from the British songbook of the 60’s, he will be bringing his fluid guitar style to select venues all across the United States and beyond. The evening promises to be a very special “living room experience” with some of Johnny’s favorite songs and stories all of which have molded him into the musician and person he is today. It’s no wonder that Gibson and Epiphone guitars have honored him with not one but three signature model guitars designed to his specifications.
Don’t miss the rare and unique opportunity to see this Grammy Nominated, Boston Music Hall of Fame Inductee and one of America’s finest instrumental guitarists up close and personal.
