Live Music from Johnny B and the Goodes at the Starr Hill Tasting Room
February 21, 2016 @ 15:00 - 18:00Free
Johnny Bishop’s roots are in the south. He grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia, home to the University of Virginia. Charlottesville was a small college town that had a hot and active music scene in the late 60’s and early 70’s. Checking out the bar bands and sneaking into ‘Frat’ parties were daily events. Many bands came through Charlottesville and stopped for a show as they travelled between Atlanta, Washington DC and New York. They included Muddy Waters, Charlie Musselwhite, Sugar Ray Norcia, Ronnie Earl, Bob Margolin, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Delbert McClinton, The Charlottesville Blues Allstars & The Nighthawks. Johnny lived at these shows, watching, listening, learning and soaking up all he could. Ultimately, this was the best education he could get in the field. Johnny was elementally moved the first time he heard the blues and has never looked back.
