Open Blues Jam!

The Boston area has been a haven for blues enthusiasts for as long as anyone can remember. And, for over a quarter-century, the longest running area Blues Jam takes place right here at Johnny D’s.

Young and old, veteran or just starting out, there is a spot for all on our Sunday afternoon jams. And because the Blues is a wide spread idiom, we make a point of welcoming both electric and acoustic, Delta, Chicago, Piedmont, rural or citified, all are invited. There is always a host to help coordinate the activities and take a few laps.

Long Time Courting & Robbie O’Connell (Celtic roots)

Take four individually accomplished traditional musicians and singers with fresh attitudes. Combine them, and you have the rich, soaring four-part vocal arrangements and high energy dance tunes that are Long Time Courting. Bringing together the talents of Sarah Blair on fiddle/vocals, Liz Simmons on guitar/vocals, Shannon Heaton on flute/vocals, and Ariel Friedman on cello/vocals, this Boston-based band shares a love of traditional Irish, Scottish and American folk music as well as contemporary material.

Jay Psaros (folk/pop)

The combination of rootsy acoustic picking and alt. rock jamming displays the versatility of Jay as a songwriter and musician as a whole. Recently, Jay has just come home from almost four months on tour supporting the release of his latest album “On Up the Road,” which is a “more polished roots-based dragnet of various Americana music genres than his debut.” The sound is “eclectic, sometimes poppy and downright danceable.”

The Velveteen Rabbit

The classic tale of the stuffed rabbit who longs to become real comes to life for a whole new generation in this delightful production. Just as the velveteen rabbit becomes real, the audience's imagination converts three actors and their simple props into a wise old rocking horse, a cavalcade of mechanical playthings, a kind-hearted fairy, and of course, a stuffed rabbit who is transformed by the love of a young boy. The Velveteen Rabbit is a joyous testament to the wonder of a child's imagination.

Four time Grammy® Award-winning group Boyz II Men—Wanya Morris, Nate Morris and Shawn Stockman bring their distinctive individual voices and peerless harmonies to songs made famous by Bonnie Raitt, The Manhattans, Journey, The Spinners, Sam Cooke, the Beatles, and Cyndi Lauper. Boyz II Men weave these diverse selections together into an album-length symphony, one that flows seamlessly from an impassioned “I Can’t Make You Love Me” through the shimmering a cappella sound of “Time After Time” to “When I Fall In Love,” a beautiful reworking of a great American standard.
