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.”
By the 1970s, he was forming bands in the New England area, drawing attention from several established musicians, like Derek and the Dominos keyboardist Bobby Whitlock and Doug Clifford of Creedence Clearwater Revival. Johnny A. became Music Director of J. Geils Band singer Peter Wolf’s outfit, coordinating the onstage arrangements, playing on several tours and co-producing Wolf’s 1996 album, *Long Line*. What’s more, he was even asked to join the Yardbirds as their lead guitarist in 2015.
All this is to say that Johnny A. has the chops, and that’s not to mention his prolific solo career. Spanning three full-length albums, a live double DVD/CD set and an instructional video, Johnny A. has earned a Grammy Award nomination, the honor of Boston Music Awards “Blues Artist of the Year 2010” and a spot in the revered Boston Music Hall of Fame. He still fervently carries on the tradition of the legends he respected as a teen. 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.
It’s no wonder that Gibson Custom and Epiphone and now Fender Custom guitars have honored him with not one but four 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.
