About
If there is a collective cultural memory within our society, its language is the pop music of the last 60 years.

John is fluent in that language.

With songs spanning The Beatles to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, John's repertoire speaks directly to his audiences' experiences, connecting their emotions with familiar melodies. And, yet, John doesn't simply cover songs - he puts his own subtle touch to them, making them both new and nostalgic – a powerful combination that brings audiences back for more.

It is his experiences, his love of music, that have made John fluent in our pop culture language. And, with more than 20 years of experience performing in venues from intimate cafes to arenas, John has a true feel for what audiences want to hear - and what keeps them singing along. Whether it's a small house party with John strumming out the soft chords of Bert Jansch or a lively pub where his band is jamming to My Sharona, John knows how to both engage and entertain an audience to create indelible memories.

If I could I would give an extra star! John is a great communicator. He learned a few new tunes by request. We changed our event time and he easily adjusted. His music selection was spot on for our party! He's a great guitarist, vocalist and entertainer. By the end of the evening the whole party was on their feet dancing! So much fun! You will not go wrong hiring John! He is talented, easy to work with, intuitive and such a great guy!

John played acoustic guitar and sang during my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. He was absolutely wonderful! He learned new songs per my request for the ceremony and he played and sang them beautifully. Many guests made a point of remarking to me and my parents at how great the ceremony musician was. It seemed that guests really enjoyed him. I even had one guest ask for his information so that she could hire him for her wedding! He was very easy to talk to over email and he made me feel very at ease. I would highly recommend John!
