Johnny is no stranger to the Big Stage, A REAL Triple Threat on Harmonica, Guitar and Accordion! Whether you’ve seen him fronting his own band, or playing with the likes of Tab Benoit, Samantha Fish, John Lee Hooker, Ronnie Earl, Anders Osborne, North Mississippi All-Stars, The Bender Brass or Voice of The Wetlands All-Stars, just to name a few, then you KNOW what Johnny brings to the table! He epitomizes what New Orleans is all about and delivers a Gumbo of cajun flavored, roots rock that’s undeniably Hot, Spicy, and most of all, Tasty! Johnny’s songwriting and vocals set him apart from the rest of the pack. He is embedded in the New Orleans Music Scene and culture and a staple on the Famed New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. He has graced stages all around the world since 1975 and is always a fan favorite on and off the stage. Laissez les bons temps rouler!

“He has crept upon us slowly but surely, and now Johnny Sansone has become one of the best bluesman/roots musicians on the scene..” -David Kunian, OFFBEAT MAGAZINE
