"Review of our CD, FUNKY GUITAR MAN"

Review by John Keller/Off-Center Records

On initial inspection of Johnson & Company's debut CD, 'Funky Guitar Man,' it could appear to be another 3 chord blues "extravaganza.' But, it's not. It's a well-crafted, tight, danceable, good flowing album. All the instruments come through clean & full. Everyone is IN it. From the opening riffs of the title track, Johnson & Co. establish themselves a step aside from the norm. Blues, rock and funk blend to develop a truly different sound to these ears.

Each proceeding song on the 9 track album, builds upon this difference. Tracks like "Don't Lose The Blues," "Funky Blues," and "Cuttin' Loose Tonight," continue to keep your feet in motion. Drummer Pat Morreale & bassist John Jarvis add to Terry Johnson's guitar prowess. Their musical & vocal contributions add fullness & depth to the recordings. The song "Blues Train," makes great use of Terry's son and daughter on acoustic guitar & keyboards, respectively, while Ted Toscano's harp playing is well featured and well accepted. My personal favorite is "You're Hot," a subtle change on the oft-written beautiful girl song.

All songs were composed by the group's leader & guitarist, Terry Johnson, so, 'Funky Guitar Man' is also a personal tale. It traces the guitarist's beginnings, on what hooked him on playing, to his band's formation & musical friends, to some personal choices that had been made. That adds to the true feelings of the heart and soul in this record.

Johnson & Company's 'Funky Guitar Man' is a grand welcome to any blues and/or rock collection. It is a great driving album, as well as a good sit back, grab a cool one & relax kind of listen. And remember - "Don't Lose The Blues!"


We just released our 1st CD called FUNKY GUITAR MAN. A couple of the songs that are getting air play are "WANNA TAKE A LITTLE RIDE", "BLUES TRAIN" and FUNKY GUITAR MAN.



We love to play live. The first time we got together to try this 3 pc. combo was off the hook hot. We jell together like nothing I have ever seen before. You have to see us live, we are electric on stage, we feel it and you will see and hear it.
I think what sets us apart from other bands is our sound. It's a combo of Funk, Rock and Blues all together in one song. Our mix of vocalist and harmonies are tight. Check out our new CD and I think you will see what I mean.
