Spirited Instrumentals

 Spirited music is our name and game and work! :)
All my New York City-area friends are invited to the Cutting Room, on Friday, April 27, at 7:30 PM for  Legends of Boston.
Who are these Boston musicians? Two different acts: Magic Dick & Shun Ng AND Johnny A. (and his guitars.)
Magic Dick is J. Geils' harmonica player and Shun is an entertaining acoustic guitar player, and he reminds me of an acoustic Jimi Hendrix and Eddie Van Halen rolled into one with a voice inspired by Michael Jackson. In fact, Quincy Jones says he was blown away by both Shun's  "soul and his science – his creativity and his uniqueness is astounding.” 

This is their song: SPACE, which is available for licensing.

Johnny A. and his guitars cover the Left Banke's “Walk Away Renee”: https://youtu.be/9IRetoeEecc
He'll be doing a set of British Invasion SongBook.

The soulful blues rocking duo of Magic Dick (the legendary harmonica player for Boston's legendary J. Geils Band) and guitarist/vocal sensation Shun Ng EP is called ABOUT TIME.

Since 1969, Magic Dick has toured the world playing and blowing away clubs and stadiums with the J. Geils Band. But he heard Shun Ng’s album, FUNKY THUMB STUFF, and wanted a musical collaboration with the upcoming musician, “Shun’s sound simply made me feel very alive and induced in me a synchronous alignment of musical DNA as if it was his intention as well as mine all along!”  

Shun Ng is an award-winning fingerstyle guitar virtuoso, singer and songwriter, known for his unique style which infuses elements of Soul, Funk, Blues and Jazz. He’s won praise from legendary producer, Quincy Jones, who says, “I was simply blown away by both his soul and his science – his creativity and his uniqueness is astounding.” Shun is a recipient of the Songwriters Hall of Fame 'Holly Prize' and winner of 'International Artist of The Year'  at the Boston Music Awards.  

Shun explains the goal was to “make music in a way that no one had quite done before while remaining grounded in our roots. Magic Dick brings a powerhouse attack with ferocious precision and a killer groove to this duo. I have great respect for him, he has seemingly done it all, but is still constantly trying to push the boundaries of music and chase the best in himself, a true artist. To be working with a true Boston legend is a real privilege."

"Just Me...and My Guitars" is what Johnny A. calls his solo concert.  For nearly 20 years Johnny A. has travelled the world effortlessly gliding through, bending and blending, musical genres to deliver his own unique style of instrumental guitar music.

To quote the LONDON FREE PRESS (Johnny A. is...) "a musician who resists easy categorization and that's always cool by us." JAZZIZ Magazine perfectly stated, "Johnny A. has eclectic musical vision and the skills to realize it... A.’s music is both accessible and sophisticated." 

Never content with complacency, and always up for a challenge, Johnny again takes an adventurous musical left turn to present his distinct, instrumental guitar approach for the very first time in a completely “solo” intimate atmosphere. 

With strong emphasis on melody and arrangements from the British songbook of the 1960s, he brings his fluid guitar style to select venues all across the United States. 
The evening promises to be a very special "living room experience" with some of Johnny's favorite songs and stories all of which have molded him into the musician and person he is today. 

It's no wonder that Gibson and Epiphone guitars have honored him with not one but three signature model guitars designed to his specifications.  Don't miss this rare and unique opportunity to see Grammy-Nominated, Boston Music Hall of Fame Inductee and one of America's finest instrumental guitarists, Johnny A., up close and personal.
