Westcoast Johnny cut his teeth on the Chicago scene with the likes of Jewtown Burkes and the Taildragger. Since then hes released 7 critically acclaimed albums, most on famed Delmark Records. Johnny led one of the most requested house bands in Chicago working with Billy Boy Arnold, Jimmie Lee Robinson, Willie Buck, Paul De Lay and many more, before relocating to California.
