Johnny is the reason why you hear music live and not through a DJ or an Ipod.
I found Johnny by chance. We needed an organist for our Catholic wedding ceremony. We then decided that he should do both our wedding dinner .
Our priest loved him at Church. I don't say this often but this man can play an organ!
Johnny was superb at our dinner. He played a medley of Beatles, love songs, some current pop songs.
What makes Johnny great is that his voice is infectious (and not in The Voice kinda of way). He is and sounds like a classically trained musician. He adds his own "voice" to each and every song. We asked him to play Yael Naim's New Soul (from the Apple Mac Air commercials). He reinvented the song with his own cover. I cannot describe his voice but for a few moments, everyone stopped paying attention to the bride & groom.
We had a playlist of about 20 songs we wanted him to play. When he told us, he could only play 3. I was disappointed but now I understand. He won't play a song just for the sake of playing it. He wants to master it and recreate it.
