Bonefish Johnny

His name's borrowed from a Bahamian angler, his songs from a driftwood pile of rhythm and style. “I'm in the moving business,” says Bonefish Johnny.

Crossing over between the indie, blues and jamband scenes for years with funk rock act Groove Thangs (signed to Epic, produced by Tom Dowd), eclectic barband Shack Daddys and his live Funky Roots Revue, Bonefish Johnny makes music to move to and be moved by.

It's always been a sound unbound. “How do you put '60's soul, calypso, reggae, blues, swampy New Orleans shuffles, trashy surf music, R&B, rap, funk, go-go, Carolina shag, Elvis and James Brown in the same sentence, let alone the same song?” despaired an early reviewer.

”The term 'guitar hero' is usually reserved for the fastest or flashiest fret shredders. But the expertise and affection guitarist Bonefish Johnny brings to blues, soul, funk, R&B and roots music makes him even more deserving of the title.” — Jazz & Blues Florida, April 2011
