Dave Alvin & The Guilty Ones (Americana)

“There are two types of folk music: quiet folk music and loud folk music. I play both.” – Dave Alvin

Dave Alvin, Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter and self-described “barroom guitarist,” is widely considered to be one of the pivotal founders of the current Americana music scene. A fourth generation Californian, Dave Alvin grew up in Downey, California as the local landscape quickly evolved from orange groves and dairy farms to tract homes and freeways.

WILL HOGE (Americana/rock)

Nashville native, but consummate rock n roller by trade, Will Hoge makes his life on the road. His fans demand it. Sharing stages with as varied a list as Keith Urban and Brad Paisley might have you thinking country, but add in, Squeeze, Lisa Loeb, ZZ Top, Keb Mo, Shinedown and Marc Broussard and those boundaries stretch. There is a true American sound in his music where blues, soul, gospel, and country melt into his rock n roll music.

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.
