Rockin' Johnny Burgin
Rockin' Johnny Burgin
"While today's blues has more than it's share of flashy guitar gunslingers, Rockin' Johnny Burgin dives into the music with more depth, heart and mind than any hotshot soloist." --Aaron Cohen, Downbeat Magazine

"With the passing of time, Rockin' Johnny has become a key figure on the Blues scene. His guitar playing continues to be unique. Many today use their instrument as a blunt instrument to beat their audience into submission. His guitar lines cut with the precision of a scalpel or laser mixing a sweet and menacing phrasing. Over the years he has stepped up to the front of the scene to not only lead the band but also to attract and surround himself with some of the best up and coming musicians (the mark of some of the best from the past)."
–ALAIN RECOURBE, Soul Bag FR

Just back from his 2018 tour of Japan and Europe, Rockin' Johnny Burgin is one of the hardest working and well recognized traditional Chicago blues artists today. Since his start in the 90s on Chicago’s West Side with blues singer Taildragger, he has become a leading blues attraction throughout the United States and Europe, performing up to 250 dates a year.
