Their music literally takes you on a guided tour of American pop exhibiting the driving energy of rock and roll, blended with jazz sophistication. The band's chemistry and Johnny's personable stage presence completes the formula that creates the band's dynamic performances.
Johnny Rodgers Band was formed in New York City in 2003, when award-winning singer-songwriter-pianist Johnny Rodgers created "The Band" he had always dreamed of to add musical depth to his road-tested original songs. Johnny pulled together accomplished musicians with vast experience who were familiar with performing in all styles from pop to jazz and classical. The music comes alive with Brian Glassman on bass, Danny Mallon on drums, Joe Ravo on guitar and Johnny on vocals at the piano or on guitar.
Two years after the bands formation, the Johnny Rodgers Band's debut album, Box of Photographs was released featuring Johnny's original songs. His songs take you on side trips to places like upbeat New Orleans and Memphis soul. The album includes Grammy-winner Randy Brecker and his legendary sound on several jazz style cuts on the twelve-track album.
