Lots of blues guitarists call San Diego home, but only one has mastered the Billboard charts. Johnny V. Vernazza, a member of legendary combo The Elvin Bishop Group, hit No. 4 on the Billboard charts with the evergreen tune, “Fooled Around and Fell in Love,” going on to back the likes of Van Morrison. Now in solo mode, Vernazza will release his new album, “Lions and Thieves” with a special CD-release show June 1 at the Kona Kai Resort. One of the first events to take place at this newly revamped venue, Vernazza’s album showcase will be chock full of guest stars, including Bishop, Charlie Daniels and Albert Lee. But no matter which tunes he showcases, it’s sure to be a musical treat for fans of blues, rock or just good music.

Very nice write up, I agree that Johnny is an exciting guitar player with a driving band, with lots of well known and liked musician friends. This should be a great CD release promo party and should be remembered for years, too bad I won't be able to make it, I know I'll regret it.

Good luck Johnny, glad I was able to help out. say hi to Elvin

Cheers to all/ Jon
