2013.05.12 Phil Johnson Phil Johnson and I first began playing together in his band, “Rush Hour” around the year 1990. His velvet baritone voice and R&B Classics repertoire drew faithful fans from near and far for over a decade. Since 2006, Phil and I have performed as a duo primarily in the Clear Lake area. Based on his reputation, Phil managed to secure a perfect opportunity for us to perform weekends at Claudio and Mattia’s Trattoria Piano Bar when it opened in April, 2012. Then Mattia extended my schedule to seven days a week in order to provide entertainment for the customers every night. Although the combination dining room / bar was unmatched in atmosphere and décor, the business did not survive the many unanticipated obstacles in its path. However, as consistently indicated by the compliments from customers in the Feedback  page of this website, the quality of the entertainment was never in doubt. One thing is certain; when Phil sings, people pay attention! Phil Johnson’s music career started with a bang, singing in a prominent showband from South Carolina,  Today, he still sings the songs he loves from the heart, and the audience can feel it. Barry White, Lou Rawls, Al Green, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations and the Platters are among his favorites, but you can hear him for yourself by listening to the audio samples on the Music page recorded live in early 2012. Phil is a truly gifted vocalist and a seasoned professional when it comes to making an audience comfortable. His presence allows me to focus on making the music sound even better.  Quite often, other musicians show up to the gig and jam for the fun of it!

2013.01.05 The Scene Live review Rhonda Meredith at The SCENE LIVE, Bay Area entertainment magazine, did a very professional article in the “Restaurant Features” section about Mattia’s Trattoria Piano Bar  in the January, 2012 issue. Yes, there is a wonderful picture of two of the crowd’s favorite Featured Artists, Phil Johnson and “Liberty” Villarreal. Daniel Rose even got in the picture. Several other Featured Artists who were performing regularly at the time were also recognized by name in the article. Soon after the article was written, “Shae”  really had the audience buzzing with her powerful female vocal renditions of their favorite R&B Classics and her warm and friendly personality.

2013.05.12 More Information on Featured Artists Coming Soon... One or more of a select group of Featured Artists typically join me on weekends or in any situation in which the Buyer suspects his audience would prefer the entertainment value of two or more performers over a solo act. (i.e. continuous live music required with no breaks, gigs longer than four (4) hours, large parties booked in advance, or whenever the budget allows, etc.) As time permits, I will add more descriptions, song lists, Mp3 demo tracks on the Music page, Photos, etc. of the Featured Artists for whom I have provided accompaniment in the past, and new singers and musicians in the future.
