Johnson Brothers BIO

Kentucky’s original “Rock ‘n Roll Repertory Orchestra,” the Johnson Brothers Band specializes in performing meticulously reproduced renditions of challenging large-band material rarely heard in clubs or concerts.

They play “the hard stuff.” From rock to funk, blues to jazz fusion, the range and depth of their repertoire is unrivaled in the region. During its 12-year history, the band has performed The Beatles’ “Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band” and “White Album” in their entirety, served as the sole live orchestration for theatrical productions of “The Who’s Tommy” ,"Hair", and “Jesus Christ Superstar” and showcased evenings devoted entirely to the music of George Harrison, Steely Dan, Beatles, Eric Clapton, the 60's, 70's, British Invasion and the Allman Brothers.

So accurate are the band’s performances that The Idea Festival, a four-day conference of “extraordinary thinkers,” selected them to play at the reception for Sir George Martin following his presentation of "The Making of the Greatest Album of All Time: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band."
Now, that’s an endorsement!

The JBs' Jim Gleason and Dave Hamon have new solo CD's of original material. Jim's latest, "Yeah, I'm Blue" is out. Dave's "Mixed Emulsions" also. Give a listen! If you decide to buy, please let us know what you think. Thanks!

In addition, the band has produced a CD of original material called “Tastes Like Chicken,” a powerful combination of funk, rock, jazz, blues and Latin influences.
