Johnny Bishopâs roots are in the south. He grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia, home to the University of Virginia. Charlottesville was a small college town that had a hot and active music scene in the late 60âs and early 70âs. Checking out the bar bands and sneaking into âFratâ parties were daily events. Many bands came through Charlottesville and stopped for a show as they travelled between Atlanta, Washington DC and New York. They included Muddy Waters, Charlie Musselwhite, Sugar Ray Norcia, Ronnie Earl, Bob Margolin, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Delbert McClinton, The Charlottesville Blues Allstars & The Nighthawks. Johnny lived at these shows, watching, listening, learning and soaking up all he could. Ultimately, this was the best education he could get in the field. Johnny was elementally moved the first time he heard the blues and has never looked back. Now, over 30 years later, heâs still at it. A six year stint working at Hohner USA in Richmond, Virginia, was a turning point. From then on, music became his full time passion. Now residing in New Hampshire he performs with a new version of his Charlottesville band, Johnny B and The Goodes.
Johnny has been seen sitting in blowing harp with Muddy Waterâs Legendary Blues Band, Bob Margolin, Tinsley Ellis, The Nighthawks, Little Charlie and the Nightcats and The Fabulous Thunderbirds.
âJohnny has command of his harmonica and is able to infuse excitement into his playing, which is what an audience can feel". Rod Piazza
"Johnny Bishop's long time commitment to the true
blues is in full evidence on his debut CD. He's always
been a deep harp man with a big full tone, but I don't
know what took him so long to start singing! He plays
AND sings with a genuine heartfelt sincerity that is
uncommonly refreshing." - Rick Estrin
âAfter working for years at the Hohner company and personally tending to the harmonica needs of numerous great players, one would expect that the experience, knowledge and abilities amassed by Johnny B would be immense. A listen to this new CD is proof that he made the most of that priceless opportunity and is well on his way to making his own distinctive mark in the blues harmonica history books.â
âJohnny Bishop knows the blues; at least he knows how to sing them. And he really knows how to play them on the harmonica. Have Mercy is the real deal. This album is blues from beginning to end. If you like blues and blues harmonica, youâll like this CD. Bishopâs vocals are strong throughout the album, but his harp playing is even stronger.â
Warren Johnston - Valley News, Lebanon, New Hampshire
âHarp player Johnny Bishop is a steady presence in the area music scene since moving north from Virginia a few years back. Blues fans that have enjoyed him in bands like Blue Monday and Have Blues Will Travel, will be pleased with this CD, the first from Bishopâs main band.â
Michael Witthaus - Connecticut Valley News Spectator
"When it comes to classic harmonica blues you have this sound nailed just right, Johnny. Itâs obvious that you have been listening to old school bluesmen such as Junior Wells or Little Walter. You are all about tone and mood, I like that a lot. You make songs like âBlue Lightsâ, âNine Below Zeroâ or âItâs Too Lateâ sound fresh again. But from all those cool covers I like your song the most, âMood Tuesdayâ. Itâs so unique, with a little bit of French and Spanish flavors. Congratulations on that. Together with a tight group of seasoned musicians and some strong singing âHave Mercyâ is a CD well worth listening and having in oneâs blues library. Good stuff!"
