What to Expect
When performing, you may hear a song you haven’t heard in forever, or ever. We like to surprise and reflect. The enjoyment of triggering that memory or feeling you had when you first heard that song; visiting the summer of your 7th grade year, the first kiss, first date, prom – when you met the love of your life. Or, give you that deep track off your favorite album that no one performs. From Rain Song to Puff the Magic Dragon; from Stilleto to Close Your Eyes; from the Goodbye Yellow Brick Road to Abbey Road Medley – our ‘job’ and passion is to entertain and embrace the wonder and passion of music.

Acoustic performances of classic rock, easy listening and other favorites.
Authentic vocal harmonies.
Cardboard guitars — that’s where it began for Jack Johnson in grade school. Singing and ‘playing’ with other members of his band “The Buzzards” for classmates. Jack has been a musician for most of his life, including multiple tours across the US and Canada with “Earth Cry” and “Time Peace”.
Jack includes guitar, piano, harmonica, ukulele, and mandolin when performing along with strong lead singer performances. His vocals show the strength of his classical training and heart-felt dedication to the art.
A few years ago, Jack discovered that his wife, Tina, had a natural talent to harmonize and provide the extra depth in the vocals to some of his favorite songs.
From The Beatles to Billy Joel; from Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young to Simon and Garfunkel; from Elton John to James Taylor and Carly Simon – the performances are fun, reflective, upbeat or surprising. Constantly rotating and adding new material to their performances keeps things fresh. The recent addition of a medley arrangement of The Beatles Abbey Road has become a regularly requested cycle of song and one that is particularly enjoyed.
Uniquely matched to each other, Jack and Tina bring their love of music and quality performance to every gig.
Additional Booking Notes

The piano is a small acoustic piano, and we bring it along in our trailer. Since we are a full service piano shop also, this is not an issue.
