In addition to his catchy original songs, Sam has a wide repertoire of cover songs to please all audiences, from the classics to today's latest hits. Check out his song list, where you are sure to find your favorite tunes for every occasion! Available as a solo vocalist/guitar player, acoustic duo, or 3 piece band with bass and percussion. Reviews: Dave Matthews - "Sam has a beautiful voice. He reminds me of my friend Martin Sexton." "Sam is crazy talented. A natural born songwriter with a gift for playing guitar and singing from his soul. He does both incredibly well and you believe every note. Not bad with a crowd either :)" — Arion Salazar, bassist of Third Eye Blind "Sam Johnson's natural voice and sound are a breath of fresh air in this day and age." — Stephen Bradley, band member of No Doubt "Sam is one of the most complete rock musicians I've ever heard. " — Robert Gunter, Yahoo! Voices "About Sam Johnson's 'The City' - This, my friends, is the song MTV will use when they do establishing shots of the city in the next San Francisco iteration of either Catfish or The Real World, whichever comes first. And if it's not, well, more the fool them." — SFist

We loved having Sam and his band members perform at our milestone event. We would hire them again!

Wine Tasting PartyReviewed on October 3, 2022From Saint Helena, CA

Sam is a wonderful performer and very talented! He was friendly, punctual and easily accommodated our event needs. I would definitely invite Sam back for future events and recommend him to others.

Corporate FunctionReviewed on September 23, 2022From San Mateo, CA

He did a great job, was a small corporate event and added just the perfect amount of "punch" to the event. He read the room perfectly!
