Johnny A

Guitarist Johnny A. was born in Malden, MA 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 the New England area. 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 the 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. ~ Ann Wickstrom, Rovi

Ever needed a song... at the right time!!! Man! my peeps across the street making major beer pong yelling and Sh*t! all good nothing but love in our hood! so this music was sooooooo needed! I'm blasting it!! :)
Perfect!
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?
Really like this stuff! I got his DVD, hope to play like him when I grow up.
Boring me
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.
correction-- d o e s ' n t remind me of Les Paul
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.

YOU CANT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT JOHNNY A. SO VERSATILE AND PASSIONATE. A REAL LEGEND. SAW HIM LIVE ABOUT 8 TIMES. EACH TIME HE AMAZES ME.
msecuro
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.

Johnny A is personable, beyond talented and if you ever get the chance to see his stage show , do NOT miss it!

A guitar virtuoso to the maxxx, oh yeah.
I heard him for the first time on the Johnny Hiland station here. He was playing honky tonk (Get Inside), very pleasant sound. Good control, good phrasing. I like him a lot. Thanks Pandora.
jeremee.born s t e i n
Its incredible that he isnt more famous than he is now
avocadolemon
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.
snafu76
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.
rsciresijr
In addition to being a nice person, Johnny A is an accomplished guitar player and composer; he is one of the guitar greats of our time! Buy the songs, see the shows! He does not disappoint.
