2016 Year in Review!
2016 brought a lot of new and really fun experiences!
Speaking of experiences...
I joined forces this past year with KISS THE SKY - The definitive Jimi Hendrix RE-Experience! 2016 saw us all over the map... DE, PA, TX, CT, NYC, CO, Vegas, Chicago, and even to Hollywood, CA where we performed at the world famous "Whisky-a-Go-Go", where we were broadcast live to 43 million viewers on the AXS-TV show, "The World's Greatest Tribute Bands"! The host of the show, Katie Daryl, recently sent our P.R. person a shining review, and said, "I am holding everyone to your standards" for the upcoming new season! 2017 has already seen some great shows with fantastic audience responses, with more to come! Please visit us at www.kisstheskytribute.com to see where we'll be next!
Also in 2016, I met a phenomenally talented artist named Graham Alexander! Graham has two incredible albums out on the Victor label. He and his band, as well as all of the other talented musicians he hires, are also just the best people to hang out with!!
Our first two shows together, sadly, were a tribute to the late artist, Prince. But, the shows were very well-received, and we had an extremely fun time working together!
Next, I performed some fantastic original shows with the Graham Alexander Band, at the "Alive At Five" festival in Stamford, CT opening up for the band O.A.R., and a very well-received show at The Cutting Room - NYC, as well as several other fun shows at a venue he owns in Berlin, NJ called "The Vault", (which is also a Victor Records museum that he owns and operates!). Two of those shows included a 50th anniversary celebration of The Beatles Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album, of which we crash-coursed in less than a week, and performed the album in its entirety, complete with live strings and horns! We received rave reviews from those sold-out performances! So much so, that there is now some talk of possibly bringing that show to some theaters. We shall see what might transpire in 2017! In the meantime, please do check out Graham Alexander here: www.victorrecords.com
I was very excited to be doing another E. Coast U.S. tour with singer, Michael Allman and our band The Mile High Club in 2016! Michael is the eldest son of Gregg Allman of The Allman Brothers Band, and a great performer in his own right! We performed some of Michael's original songs from his album "Hard Labor Creek", as well as lots of Allman Brothers songs, Classic Rock hits, and some Blues thrown in for good measure! More Michael Allman & The MHC shows to come in 2017!! Please join us on Facebook at Michael Allman and The Mile High Club for upcoming show/tour announcements!
And, of course, the year wouldn't be complete without the rockin' music & mayhem of the John McNutt Band! 2016 brought a TON of shows, from Upstate NY down to WV, and all points in-between. Lots of fun clubs, festivals, and private parties, doing what we do best...Classic Rock, Funk/Dance, R & B, etc...
If you'd like to book the John McNutt Band for your next event, please contact Shore Bets Entertainment @ or call 215.884.4357.
Welcome to my brand-spankin' new website! I am VERY excited about it! Hope you all are too!! In due time, I will be adding music from my upcoming solo album, a blog, as well as more pics, show dates, videos, links, and other fun things! This is a work in progress, so please be patient, check back often, and stay tuned! LET'S ROCK!!!
You Don't Know
After years of touring & recording with other artists, I've decided that it's my turn to give it a go! I am now currently working, albeit slowly but surely, on my first solo album, which as of now has a working title called, "You Don't Know". I'm hoping to have something to show for it on here sometime soon!
