Friends and guitar music fans:
I am happy to tell you that I have a new band ‹ Paul Johnson & Friends ‹ and that this new band is about to make its DEBUT PERFORMANCE this coming weekend at the COFFEE GALLERY BACKSTAGE in ALTADENA.
I have hand-picked some of the top players from within the surf-instro genre to work with me at this endeavor of love. Accompanying me on the CGB stage for our first public performance will be:
As Ron & Matt are both adept at playing both the guitar and the bass, the plan here is to have them trade off between the two instruments, thus lending greater variety to guitar sounds within the band. The group's repertoire will include all the usual surf and rock-instrumental classics, as well as my own catalog of original tunes. The goal for Paul Johnson & Friends is to move the genre forward with new ideas for the music, while remaining faithful to the original style that defines the surf-instrumental genre.
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 26, 7 PM
THE COFFEE GALLERY BACKSTAGE
2029 LAKE STREET, ALTADENA (about 2 miles north of the 210 Fwy)
You should make reservations NOW ‹ shows here often sell out in advance; there are only 50 seats available in this intimate venue... but every seat is up close and personal and the sound is great too, making the CGB the IDEAL venue for what we do!
