Sweetwater Music Hall
Mill Valley, CA

On a cool Sunday evening on the last weekend of January, Johnny A. walked into a converted church in Mill Valley, California and showed what one guy, two guitars and about a dozen effects pedals can do. Playing two of his signature semi-hollowbody Gibson guitars through a congregation of Eventide H9 digital multi-effect pedals, Johnny set up a series of synchronous loops to create a soundscape that was both broad and deep, reverberating through the rafters of the Sweetwater Music Hall. After assuring the near-capacity crowd that nothing was pre-recorded, Johnny launched into a set that included some of his most popular songs, like "Walk Away Renee" and "Wichita Lineman" interspersed with some surprises like "The Stealer" by Free. Highlights of the evening included two extended medleys, each about 15 minutes in length. The first started with Blind Faith's "Can't Find My Way Home" and morphed into a series of Led Zeppelin songs, including "Whole Lotta Love." The second was exclusively Beatles tunes, beginning with "Yes It Is' and ending with "Ticket to Ride," which triggered an impromptu singalong. Memorable tunes on a memorable evening in which a band would have been downright superfluous.

Blues Alive IV
By merging timeless tone and taste with utterly contemporary technique, Johnny A. has earned a reputation as one of the most talented guitarists working today. The original Johnny A. Signature guitar became one of Gibson Custom’s most popular artist models right from its unveiling in 2003. Now the new Johnny A. brings the same blend of classic appointments and original design forward with a host of great new features, in a superbly versatile new semi-acoustic electric guitar that you’ll want to call your own.
