The Johnnys are an Ontario-based band that deliver three-minute sermons of jet-fuelled rock’n’roll. With cheeky lyrics and anthemic choruses, Dave and Veronica Johnny have been crossing cultural boundaries by blending traditional Indigenous values and language with high voltage chords and thumping melodies. Their first three independently released albums were all nominated for national music awards. The Johnnys fourth album titled, “Leathers and Feathers” garnered international award nominations. Their songs Time to Shine, Have a Good Time All the Time, with Salas/Gutierrez remixes – Leathers and Feathers and Butterfly – all reached top 10 on the Indigenous Music Countdown. https://www.thejohnnys.com

The Johnnys can be funny or profound. It’s loud and rowdy, but they made us all feel something. They’re human beings, and their music powered everyone in the room.” Robert Singerman, LyricFind, at the International Indigenous Music Summit, New Orleans, 2020.
“If you’re looking for high-energy entertainment, grounded in original songwriting, heart and soul, I recommend The Johnnys for a rockin’ good time.” Laurie Sarkadi, EDGEYK magazine
