From the venue:
King Johnson brings you funky roots music from Atlanta, GA. The band’s organic mix of New Orleans funk, blues, jazz, latin and rock styles make for a unique sound often hard to categorize. Crowds of all ages love the butt-shakin’ grooves, catchy songs and extended improvisations of King Johnson. Voted Atlanta’s best band in the “blues” category for half of a decade, King Johnson is praised by the Creative Loafing Magazine for “incorporating hook-heavy writing and facile playing with New Orleans brass funk and jazz.” It’s swampy, greasy, jazzy, spontaneous, loose and tight all at the same time.
