The Jeremiah Johnson Band with The SlidersThe Jeremiah Johnson Band with The Sliders

Don’t be fooled by the baby boy good looks. With lyrics like “I was born in a tavern on the banks of the Mississippi” and a horn section that hammers the groove, Jeremiah Johnson is the new face of Mississippi River blues. Walk into a gin joint in St. Louis and you’ll likely hear the familiar “blues” sound that made the area famous.

It’s lyrics about the struggles of daily living with the hallmark blues style guitar that rips at your soul and soothes the spirit.Johnson takes that rich heritage but also blends influences that shaped his rugged youth like Eric Clapton, Jimmy Hendrix, BB King, Albert Collins, Albert King, Johnny Winter, Alvin Lee from Ten Years After, Les Paul, Chet Atkins, and Hank Williams Sr. and Jr., to name just a few.

On top of a rich gumbo of solid songwriting, Johnson kicks it up a notch with The Sliders, Jim Rosse (trumpet) and Stuart Williams (sax). In their 25-year tenure together, The Sliders have toured with Little Feat, Johnnie Johnson, Bob Weir of Rat Dog, and have played with too many great players to mention them all.

Paired together with The Jeremiah Johnson Band, you get an energized entertainment experience that will put the honky tonk in major venues to come.

The Jeremiah Johnson Band is:

Jeremiah Johnson-Guitar and lead vocals

Jeff Girardier-Bass and Backing Vocals

Jim Rosse-Trumpet

Stuart Williams-Sax

Brad Martin-Drums


"As I am well into my second decade of producing and promoting Blues concerts around the world, it still is a magical experience for me to find an artist who was not on my radar screen and whose talent just knocks my socks off. Such is the case with Jeremiah Johnson."
Steve Simon - Steve Simon Presents

“This CD, 9th & Russell, is not the stereotypical self-produced CD one encounters. Everything here is 1st class: musicianship, singing, production, artwork, and especially the songs. A lot of folks out there can play, and many can sing well, but when the songs are as strong as they are on this CD everything moves to a higher level - at the end of the day it's all about the songs. It can be a difficult task to capture the energy of a great live-performance band on a studio album, especially for blues and R&B acts. Jeremiah Johnson and band have most definitely risen to the challenge, capturing some of that live-music sound and energy on this recording. The band's own motto states "Live Music Is Better", but this CD is great way to experience the group during the times you are not able to see them up close and in person. It is my expectation that this CD will stand on its own merits and end up being considered one of the best independently released CDs of 2011”
