Johnny has been entertaining audiences across America for the past 30 years. In the 1980’s, he honed his blues slide guitar style as a solo performer in southern Georgia and northern Florida. In the 90’s, Johnny moved to the west coast and played electric slide guitar in blues bands in San Francisco and along the north and central coast of California.
These days, Johnny brings his hot fingerpickin’, slide guitar and down-home vocals to a variety of Rocky Mountain music venues. Rest assured, you no longer have to drive to Mississippi or New Orleans to enjoy real down home music – Johnny Johnston delivers!
