"Lil" Red Johnnie/Bustin Out"

Little Red Johnnie at Lee’s Theatrical Productions REVIEW!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you missed the Lil’ Red Johnnie Show at Lee’s Theatrical Productions, you just plain missed out on one heck of a show! Lil’ Red Johnnie’s Bustin Out show is one of the best shows around. The musicians were amazing with their Cajun Blues sound that left the audience wondering if there were really tin the state of Indiana or some back waters of the Delta. The bands musical transitions were seamless and gel together like homemade jam and biscuits, Lil’ Red Johnnie appeals to all ages, young and old alike. Across the full-house audience at Lee’s were fans ranging from4to 5 years old up to their 90’s. Not only did the audience cross several generation, everyone of every age seemed to be enjoying themselves. From the 5 year olds clapping their hands and swaying back and forth in their seats to those in their 20’s dancing in the aisles. There was even a 90-year-old-woman jiving in her seat and keeping time with her foot tapping the floor.

This cross-generational crowd is symbolic of the music Lil’ Red Johnnie performs. Although billed as Cajun Blues or Folk Blues, Lil’ Red Johnnies music seems to be a melting pot of several musical styles from Blues, Jazz, Rock and Country. There is something for everyone at a Lil’ Red Johnnie Concert.

Not only does Lil’ Red Johnnie play music that appeals to all ages, Johnnie and his musicians perform at a professional level equal to or above many nation acts. There is no doubt about it; if you attend a Lil’ Red Johnnie Show, you’ll get every bit of your money’s worth and more. Lil’ Red Johnnie is the real deal.
