About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

A versatile singer/musician/entertainer/arranger/composer available for a wide variety of events, venues, productions &/or projects. I work as a solo performer (accompanying myself on piano, other keyboards &/or guitar). In addition, I am musical director for a variety of performance groupings including my duo, Parallels (featuring the outstanding vocal stylings of Amanda Gayle, a very talented young singer/comedienne), and my band, Vintage Spirits (covering jazz, rock, r&b and country standards - our song list features thousands of songs and medleys). I am also music director of Unity Church in Little Rock, AR and have served the church for sixteen years now. At risk of sounding arrogant (as a skillful promoter, I'm a decent piano player), I feel I can state with confidence that whatever the event, I can provide the buyer(s) with exactly what would best serve them and their families/customers/patrons. Put another way, I can cover Sinatra AND Skynyrd, Abba AND ZZ Tops, New York "Broadway" AND Nashville "Broadway", the "Greatest (WWII) Generation" decades thru the miillennials' current hits. Audio/video (youtube, facebook, etc.) and references will be provided via timely request. God Bless to All, & may you find the right live performer for your special occasion, even if it's not me!!!

Review by Pamela C.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on April 28, 2019From Little Rock, AR

John went out of the way to make my dad's 95th surprise birthday PERFECT!!! He did research ahead of time so he can play all of the great memory songs during dad's 95 years of life. If he ever visits Nevada, I would love to hire him again for a great gathering! Pam Vinny Cookson

Review by Mezei J.

EventReviewed on July 7, 2018From New Orleans, LA

John can early for the event and even brought along sound system and microphone for use. He was very professional and accommodating.

John Forrest Long:

Thanks, Mezei - I remain grateful at having been able to serve you and yours; be looking for some new audio/video footage. If you hear of any performing opportunities up Big Apple way - one nighters &/or ongoing restaurant/club gigs - let me know. Should go without saying that should paid work result, you would certainly be entitle to 20% agents cut. Blessings, JFL
