Johnny Guitar and Bluestar

January 20 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm


They’ve played at Clearwater’s Capitol Theater…Opened for the great Janiva Magness. Johnny Guitar and Bluestar! Featuring the stunning vocals of Johnny Guitar, and original band member Sandy Vogel.
The Blues started quite a while ago. Some folks borrowed from it. Some folks copied the blues. Some folks changed it and called it JAZZ.

Authentic Blues is what folks are really looking for.
You can’t just sing the blues.
You can’t just play the blues.
You gotta live the blues.

Johnny Guitar began playing the blues, singing the blues, at a very young age. His songs and lyrics cut to the heart of what the blues is all about. Diamond Teeth Mary was his cousin. And when he sits down his guitar and picks up the microphone, walking into the audience, singing from his soul, people understand that.

Johnny sings some old favorite rhythm and blues, but he mostly loves singing his own songs. Most talk about love, and folks treating their loved ones wrong. The pain and beauty of the blues. You may find him down on his knees, singing to his audience, any night.
