“House of Blues Orlando erupted with energy as the well-known and highly esteemed local band took the stage. The crowd screamed and applauded even as the instrumentalists began merely setting up their equipment, and in return they acknowledged their exuberant fans with modest grins and waves. Amidst this lively and undying audience reaction, Jonnie Morgan Band blew us away with spectacular instrumentals, relaxed and fearless vocals, and overall an entirely unique vibe. The rhythm, engendered by the immensely talented Bruno Ufret on the drums, was completely locked in throughout the performance. With every beat he flawlessly emphasized facets of the melody, and maintained vivacity of fervent, immense proportions. Matched with an incredible performance energy, you could hardly take your eyes off his graceful stick flips and animated body language as he utilized every muscle and bone to support the rest of the ensemble.

“Influences ranging from Dave Matthews to Bob Marley, the Jonnie Morgan band has developed a sound, and a following that proves rock and roll can be fun. Morgan brought together an ambitious ensemble, through connections at UCF, with a horn section complimenting the infectious hooks. One of Orlando’s ascending live draws, their festival ready sound should translate well to the mainstage this month.”

“The Jonnie Morgan Band was next in line on the Tire Kingdom Stage. I had previously interviewed Morgan, but I had not had the pleasure of hearing the band live with their seven member outfit. I was honored to cover their set. They lucked out with their 7:30 p.m. time slot. Most of the crowd was settling in place to get ready for the night’s headliners and escape the setting sun. Morgan’s bluesy rock could be heard over by the neighboring Ford Stage, luring people to come cool down. The band’s sound has evolved since my UCF days. Morgan described this group’s sound as “full” and that really is the perfect term. Their horn section, comprised of a saxophone, trumpet and trombone, is a great complement to Morgan’s soulful lyrics and deep voice. The crowd loved the budding band from Orlando. Twice I was stopped by people intrigued about their sound. I told them, what I’ll tell you now: Keep an ear open. You’ll hear them again soon.”

“When I saw Jonnie Morgan’s name on the SunFest lineup I let out a little cheer. The handsome and humble songwriter and musician is a fellow University of Central Florida alum. I have had the pleasure of catching the guys at local venues around Orlando. Today they will take the Tire Kingdom stage at 7:30 p.m. I used this excuse to chat with Morgan before his SunFest debut to find out a little more about his seven piece ensemble. After dabbling with covers and a successful “Open Mic” night, Morgan and two friends started playing Orlando’s local watering holes…which weren’t always prepared to support a band. “We were terrible,” Morgan said. “ But it was so awesome to finally play a show. [One] stage we were on was made of plywood and 2x4s. It was bouncing up and down. At one point, my microphone stand fell over and snapped in half during the performance. All the embarrassing things that you should go through, happened.” Click the link to read more!”

“There are so many talented bands in Orlando, and Jonnie Morgan Band’s show last Saturday night at The Social was a terrific example of how deep the pool is. The seven-piece Orlando band, consisting of Jonnie Morgan (vocals/guitar), Jeremy Adams (bass), Bruno Ufret (drums/vocals), Brandon Sollins (lead guitar), Matthew Mill (trumpet/vocals), Corey Paul (trombone/vocals) and Jose Rojas (sax), has a universal sound that appeals to a wide-range of music fans. With seven members, the band may be big in size, but their tight playing gives the band’s live show an intimate feel, with Morgan’s smooth vocals leading the way. Music fans in Orlando should consider themselves lucky to have such a talented band among the many in town to see, and anyone here who hasn’t yet ventured out to see the Jonnie Morgan Band play live needs to make it a priority. ”

“Next up was Orlando’s Jonnie Morgan Band. Jonnie Morgan (vocals/guitar) and the rest of the band, Jeremy Adams (bass), Bruno Ufret (drums/vocals), Brandon Sollins (lead guitar), Matthew Mill (trumpet/vocals), Corey Paul (trombone/vocals) and Jose Rojas (sax) took complete control of the crowd with their catchy, melodic rocking/pop music, even drawing in the stragglers from the other areas of the BackBooth. They closed their set with the fan favorite “Crazy.” The crowd didn’t want it to end and were demanding another song, but there wasn’t enough time”
