    Eric Johnson, who calls Pittsburgh home, is one of the legends of jazz guitar in modern jazz history over the past 30 years. Having performed as a sideman for Lou Donaldson, Stanley Turrentine, Ramsey Lewis, Hank Crawford, Jimmy McGriff, Brother Jack McDuff, Dr. Lonnie Smith, and more who played the groove style of jazz. In addition, Johnson produced two highly acclaimed CD’s, Supahighway and Makin’ Whoopie. His musical performances and style are often compared to the full body guitar playing of Wes Montgomery, Grant Green, and George Benson. Accompanied by an ensemble of Doug “Trigger” Gaston on piano, Ed Croft on bass, Robert Garrett on drums, and Tony Zambito on percussion, it is sure to be a groovy time.
