TJ Johnson & his Band
TJ Johnson – piano & vocals
Duncan Hemstock – reeds
Tony Pitt – banjo & guitar
Tim Fairhall – bass
Jack Cotterill – drums
The weather was kind to us at last and the band brought in their followers so we had a packed room for the evening. What more would you expect when TJ takes to the stage!
We were treated to an evening of excellence, a top class performance with a band who create their own unique and intimate atmosphere. TJ really does create something special and he relates to the audience in such a tangible way that you feel that it is a special occasion. The repertoire was packed with jazz tunes, soul, gospel and the tunes came one after the other. A highly entertaining evening and one that we wish to repeat again next year.
It was lovely to hear Duncan’s swinging reed playing, Tony’s rock steady banjo and guitar, Tim’s brilliant bass especially his solo and Jack’s complimentary drums. TJ has a solid backing rhythm section with these musicians making this band a winning combination.
Thanks for a superb night to you all.
