When Kenny and Ammon started playing together in 2002, they envisioned a mostly acoustic band combining elements of alt-county, americana, bluegrass, and folk. Taking Sprinsteen's Nebraska as a starting point and building out from there. When Kevin and Joe came along the following year, adding drums and bass, the chemistry was undeniable and the quartet decided to not place any limitations on the style of music they were to play; whatever felt natural to them, is what they would play. Culling from their influences of blues, funk, and good old rock music, Johnny 99 found themselves falling musically between the groove of the Black Crowes and The Faces and the ecletic pop of The Replacements and Matthew Sweet.

After playing Hollywood's Key Club and Whisky-A-Go-Go a few times, they discovered to their happy amazement that their music really connected with lot of people. Though the band never thought of themselves as a "hair metal" band (and still doesn't), they found that a suprising number of Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, Van Halen fans were really attracted to Johnny 99's brand of Rock n Roll. The band members came to the conclusion that what these new fans were saying was "we really miss when rock was fun music".

Currently, Johnny 99 is working on their debut album "Rock n Roll Could Save Your Life". Due out the beginning of 2006, the album contains an eclectic mix of songs ranging from folk to blues, from pop to straight-ahead rockers.
