Bonefish Johnny


About 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's life is about making music to move to and be moved by.

"South Florida may not come readily to mind when one thinks of the blues, but singer/guitarist Bonefish Johnny has been playing his brand of sugarcane soul in the regions' bars and juke-joints for over thirty years. (Latest release) Sings the Blues is a testament to those who came before, and a confession of paying dues." -- All About Jazz

"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

"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?" -- Sun-Sentinel

"Known as the baddest...the most get-down soulful cats around" -- Brian Warner (aka Marilyn Manson)

"Too cool for this business." -- Legendary producer Tom Dowd

"Oozing with soul" -- Jam Magazine

"Clever, compassionate and rebellious" -- Palm Beach Post

"Commentary, romance and messages, all set to catchy rhythms" -- Boca News

"Streetwise humanism with a dose of anarchy" -- New Times, Miami

"Lyrics are emotional, introspective and brilliant" -- Thrust Magazine

"Bergoyang Funky" -- Surabaya Post, Indonesia
