As a young boy, Johnny would sit in front of the television and absorb every variety, comedy, and music show of the late 1960's and into the 1970's, while imitating as many voices as he heard. Johnny began listening to the LP records his parents played on their stereo console, and decided to teach himself how to sing, while he practiced imitating the voices of each singer, until each voice was just right. This same commitment is carried out with every performance, as Johnny is now the one on television, radio, and live concert stages. Johnny recreates each legendary star with astonishing accuracy. NO MUSIC TRACKS are used during his show! Whether he is accompanied by the Time Travelers Band, or simply with his guitar, the audience is treated to a show they will always remember!

It only matters what the audience likes! 

Whether I'm on stage, in front of a television camera,

in a recording studio, or on a radio station microphone......experience makes a difference!
