"ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR!!" - Campus Activities Magazine

"The Human iPod!" - The Boston Globe

John has opened for: Fuel, Eve 6, Edwin McCain, Matt Kearney, Keller Williams, Howie Day, The Dixie Chicks, Matchbox 20, Joe Pisapia (Guster), and The Whalers!

John Rush takes you on a musical journey like no other show can. Singing and playing guitar / bass / harmonica / piano / saxophone / banjo / keyboard and percussion John Rush plays his own original music and songs you know. If you think you've seen this before, you're wrong. John Rush is not just another singer/songwriter! Wowing audiences with his guitar work and capturing them with his voice and lyrics John Rush won Campus Entertainer of the Year and Campus Awards Musician of the Year!

John Rush has a much larger sound than most solo musicians. Taking a unique approach, John performs with the help of a loop machine that allows him to record a guitar "loop" on the fly and then play lead, bass, harmonica, piano, and percussion over it. John beats on his guitar, plays bass lines, and expressive guitar leads that impress the most critical listeners. This allows him to sound like a whole band even though it's just John and a guitar.

John was great to work with! He is professional and very talented! He made our guests feel welcome and was always willing to accomodate! Our guests truly enjoyed his performance, one even said, "I want to throw a party just to have John play!" I would definitely hire him again and would recommend him to anyone needing a great solo artist!

John was absolutely fabulous and very accommodating. He is an excellent and most entertaining musician. John even continued his performance during a rain storm and was very concerned about everyone having a great time. John was receptive to our young and older guests joining him on stage. He was very personable and we truly enjoyed our evening with John Rush. I highly recommend John for any event, large or small. Thank you, John, for making our grad party very, very special.

I hired John for my finance's birthday party for about 40 guests with strolling dinner. John was wonderful. He arrived early, asked about the music preference, played variety of different songs per guest requests. I could not ask for better. I would recommend him and hire him again.

John Rush provided an outstanding performance for our event at the Crawford County Fair in Denison, IA. John arrived on time and provided excellent entertainment value for our audience. John is very easy to work with and I would not hesitate to recommend him for a similar performance for any musical event you might be planning.

We hired John Rush for our twins high school grad party without ever seeing him "live". What a great choice of entertainment! He showed up 1 hour ahead of time, set up his equipment and starting on right on time. He played for 5 1/2 hours without a break. We received no less than 50 compliments from our guests. Great variety of music and very accomodating. Great value!!!
