Johnny A

Guitarist Johnny A. was born in Malden, Massachusetts and grew up in the North Shore area of Boston, where he led bands that played every major and not-so-major venue in the area as well as a host of roadside bars in New England. He eventually chose to become a sideman, playing with such artists as Bobby Whitlock, Mingo Lewis, and J. Geils frontman Peter Wolf. In his six-year stint as Wolf's guitarist, Johnny A. recorded on the albums Fool's Parade (1999) and one which he co-produced with Wolf, 1996's Long Line. Johnny A. was also a member of Wolf's House Party 5 band and various incarnations of his acoustic ensembles which toured extensively throughout the United States and Japan.

In late 1999, Johnny A. placed himself front and center with an all-new guitar instrumental project and album, titled Sometime Tuesday Morning on Aglaophone Records. The album included original material as well as covers of the Beatles' "Yes It Is," Jimmy Webb's "Wichita Lineman," and Willie Cobbs' blues classic "You Don't Love Me." The album was embraced by radio stations, critics, and fans alike, and spawned the instrumental single "Oh Yeah," which hit number one in the U.S. on the AAA radio format. Get Inside was released by Favored Nations in 2004, with One November Night, a live CD/DVD set recorded at a show in Boston, arriving in 2010. Driven, which saw Johnny A. mixing, producing, and playing all the instruments, was released in the spring of 2014. ~ Ann Wickstrom & Steve Leggett, Rovi

How many people from Philadelphia area would be interested in one of his house parties? Full Band Cost = $5,000 last time I checked. If there were enough of us, we could split it so that it's affordable (maybe $100?each) with 50 people. I know of a few good places around Philadelphia that we could call our house?

I met the guy a few times, he is kind of a jerk, but he can play, and that is all that matters on stage.

Somehow, accidently stubbled onto this guy, Never heard of him, but wow, I like his style and beautiful tone of his guitar. His tone kind of reminds me of Les Paul.

First time I heard Oh Yeah in the car I pulled off the road to hear it and find out who it was - immediately got the CD and learned it for my own band - met him briefly at NAMM while demonstratin g the same tune - he was behind me going - hey man that's my song! - then later in Phx after a killer show (to too few people sadly) at the Rhythm Room...love his talent and tone!

Johnny A. at Harbor house with Peter Wolf screaming and shouting many moons ago. Johnny jammed with a few others before Wolf appeared to front the group, What a strange night, slipped in the side door cuz we knew one of the bouncers and got comped at the bar like we were with the band, Didn't realize my buddy was doing lighting and set it up for us to get VIP treatment.

One of the best live guitarists I've ever seen. If you get a chance to see him, don't miss out. His playing is ecclectic, his chord fingerings are unique, tone is mindblowing and he can say alot with one note or shred with the best, and I mean the best as in Hendrix, Vaughn, Page et al. Nice guy too, very approachable .

I saw him perform last week and his technique, tone and soulful approach were stunning. His band is also superb, they are frighteningl y tight as a live trio.

A+! Every time I hear his playing I have to look up from my dull spreadsheet and say: Wow! Who was that? Chops chops chops! He's got em. Jazz, blues, salsa, tex mex, rock all in the mix in a single song . . . and it works. A-mazing.

Johnny A is one of the greatest guitar players to date. Up ther with the likes of Eric Clapton,SRV, Jeff Beck and the like.

If you are a guitar player, do yourself a favor and see him live. you won't believe your ears or your eyes. Unmatched tone and style.
