Nashville musician and vocalist Von Johin grew up in the southern USA playing juke joints all across the Chitlin’ Circuit. An ardent follower of the greats of blues music, Von Johin delivers his powerful shows every week on
Second Life.

In Second Life, Von Johin is all about the roots of his musical love, American blues, rural country folk, bluegrass and more. On occasion he’ll swing into something covered by Jerry Garcia, or some groovy other psychedelic material that inspires him as he goes. Shows are not set-listed, and one song can flow into the next.

Von Johin broadcasts each show live from his Blue Note Studio on the outskirts of Nashville, playing almost nightly. Shows start on top of the hour, usually flying by without a break in-between the songs. Lots of energy, lots of fun, that’s what you can expect at a Von Johin concert!

Raised playing blues and bluegrass, Von sorted out early on that the biggest difference in the two genres was the tempo and the swing. He fuses together these two major influences in his life, sometimes delivering a “blues-grass” type of thang that folks seem to like when he does it.

Von’s real life avatar has recorded and performed with members of Hot Tuna/Jefferson Airplane, Joe Louis Walker, Jerry Garcia band, Fleetwood Mac, he was mentored in music by the late, great Merl Saunders. With Merl, he performed with Narada Michael Walden, Rob Wassermann, Vince Welnick, Melvin Seales, Bill Kreutzmann, and also opened shows by the one and only Wavy Gravy.

Not a Second Life resident? You can still catch the show using iTunes by telling it to open up http://www.vonjohin.com:8888 on something like iTunes or Winamp, etc.
