That was my first question.
Leader and front man of the most widely known and traveled band in America, Johnny Holm is the most entertaining entertainer performing today. The show is dedicated to the fans, and they do most of the entertaining. Mostly impromptu, the show moves with the speed of lightning and changes direction as soon as “the pied piper” notices a lag. “Never a dull moment” was never a more true description.
Surrounding himself with the finest musicians in the Midwest, the band rocks, picks, and thunders along for 3-4 hours, almost non-stop from the first song to the last laugh.
Millions of people have seen Johnny over the years, and millions of people have been part of his fantourage.
The band plays in most of the United States but most dates are in the 5 state upper Midwest area.
Ask anyone with a twinkle in their eye or a knowing smile about Johnny. They’ll try and tell you all about the mayhem that masquerades as a rock and roll band.
Be hip most of your life, but once and a while, let down and “get down Holm fever”.
He sounds entertaining. But a good writer can many anything exciting. I needed more. Everyone I talked to had seen Johnny at some point in time. Their word was good and trustworthy.
But I needed more.
So, where do people of my generation go?
So that’s where I went.
I went to YouTube and searched for the Johnny Holm Band.
One song and I was hooked. If you have a minute, watch this video. If you don’t have a minute, make time. It’s worth it.
And if you’re going to be at the Cruise Dinner, come say hello.
If you don’t have your tickets yet, there’s still time. I know it’s going to be great show.
