TJ JOHNSON: Presenting an exclusive intimate show as a trio of Jazz, Blues and TJ style Country Soul.
TJ will take you on a trail from the Smokey Jazz dives of New Orleans through the foot tapping Honky Tonks of Texas to the Gin-soaked Speakeasies of New York.
TJ Johnson is widely considered to be one of the UK’s most charismatic highly revered Jazz and Blues singers but almost Folk like in his ability to weave his own nuance into the story of each song. He is also a hot piano player and respected bandleader.
TJ Sprang on to the Jazz scene in the late 80’s as a Jazz singer with Max Collie at the age of 17 and since forming his own band in 1990 has performed extensively for over thirty years now at many Theatres, Festivals and Jazz clubs both in the UK and overseas.
A true ambassador of the soul, TJ sings songs of love lost and gained, of life wholesome and corrupt, songs of hope and despair, songs of the night, all with the true passion and boozy swagger of only a man who has been there and knows.
