“Eminence Speakers keep my vintage amps sounding better than ever!”
Oliver Wood has previously toured with Capricorn Records recording artist Tinsley Ellis, was featured prominently on Tinsley’s acclaimed “Storm Warning” CD, and is currently with the band, King Johnson. King Johnson brings you funky, horn-driven roots music from Atlanta, Georgia. The band’s organic mix of New Orleans funk, blues, jazz, latin and rock styles make for a unique sound often hard to categorize. Crowds of all ages love the butt-shakin’ grooves, catchy songs and extended improvisations of King Johnson. Voted Atlanta’s best band in the “blues” category for three of the last four years, King Johnson is praised by the Creative Loafing Magazine for “incorporating hook-heavy writing and facile playing with New Orleans brass funk and jazz.” It’s swampy, greasy, jazzy, spontaneous, loose and tight all at the same time.
