Johnny Barnes & The NightCrawlers / Bio

Born in New Bedford, Mass., Johnny played the drums and attended
boarding school in the Berkshires. After his drums finally broke down, he
sang and played harmonica in a weekend blues band in New York City's
Greenwich Village in the late 60's. After 2 years at U-Mass Dartmouth,
Johnny moved to Boston and started a blues band, playing guitar. He
drove a taxicab, attended Berklee School of Music and Harvard University
Extension School majoring in philosophy.

Johnny Barnes sang and played guitar in all of the famous nightclubs in
greater Boston with many Rock & Roll legends, producing and releasing a
dozen records. Local airplay and intense record company interest led to a
hit song in England and work with legendary producer, Jimmy Miller
[Rolling Stones, Spencer Davis Group, Blind Faith with Eric Clapton, Traffic
with Steve Winwood, Motorhead, Bonnie and Delaney with Eric Clapton.]

Barnes moonlighted, helping manage Boston's largest live music
nightclub, The Channel, where his band opened for numerous major acts
through the 80's and early 90's. www.johnnybarnes.com
