Gibson Custom and Epiphone "Signature Artist" JOHNNY A. Announces 2020 "JUST ME AND MY GUITARS" WEST COAST TOUR DATES

Gibson Custom and Epiphone "Signature Artist" JOHNNY A.  Announces 2020


Boston, MA – Acclaimed guitarist Johnny A. announces that he will be returning to the West Coast for a series of tour dates beginning on January 9, 2020. “Most of these venues will be a first for me and I'm excited to be bringing the ‘Just Me...And My Guitars’ show to them,” says Johnny A. “As I usually only get to the West Coast once a year, I'm counting on all my friends and fans to please help me get the word out.”

About Johnny A. “Just Me...And My Guitars" A Celebration of the British Songbook of the 60's:

Johnny A. again takes an adventurous musical left turn with his “Just Me...And My Guitars” performances to present his distinct, instrumental guitar approach for the very first time in a completely “solo” intimate atmosphere...combining his keen arrangement instincts and guitar skills with his adept understanding and use of effects for a high--wire, one man tour de force, performance in real time without a net!

In a feature on Johnny in the current Holiday issue of Guitar Player Magazine, writer Craig Anderton said it best: “He brought a level of taste and sophistication to the genre, especially with a version of “Strawberry Fields Forever” that included all the bits — the backward guitars, the rhythms — and then took it even further. If you ever have a chance to see his live looping act, don’t miss it. He’ll change your idea about what’s possible with a guitar.”

“Johnny A. is one of the finest guitarist’s I’ve ever had the pleasure to listen to, and I always learn something when we get together. He is a consummate musician on a world class level. I’ll put him toe-to-toe with anyone!” – Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee  Elliot EastonThe Cars

“Johnny A. has always had such a musical approach to the way he plays the guitar. He arranges his parts sort of like a symphony orchestrator, covering counterpoints and filling out harmonic structures. The tone in his fingers is always comfortable and friendly and a delight to feel. He is a thoroughly accomplished and powerfully effective guitarist.” – 3-time Grammy Award-winning Artist Steve Vai

“Johnny A. is a light in a sea of guitar players. His unique and soulful full approach and his ‘one man band’ chops are peerless. Melody – tone, taste and a trick bag of surprises and a killer choice of material makes him a must see!” - 5 time Grammy Award winning ArtistSteve LukatherToto
