Born on the muddy banks of the Kishwaukee River, Johnny and The Boomers has been a benchmark of the DeKalb County and Northern Illinois blues sound for over a decade. A five-piece powerhouse blues band playing all varieties of venues. From concert halls, festivals, outdoor gatherings, weddings to the finest bars, taverns, saloons, and juke joints on the map. Regularly featured on the WNIJ Friday and Saturday night blues programs, and currently holding residency at O'Leary's Irish Pub in downtown DeKalb as the hosts of the only open blues jam on the first Thursday of every month. Comprised of seasoned and accomplished musicians, Johnny and The Boomers play material from Ray Charles to Paul Butterfield. From Tom Waits to Howlin' Wolf. From Muddy Waters to Eric Clapton. From Tom Petty to Louis Jordan.
"A two-piece chicken band!" -Nino Gardona
