JOHNNY VIDACOVICH & CO: “Out Da Box” Record Release

Wed April 19 @ 8:00 pm

Drawing on the musical heritage of The Birthplace of Jazz, Johnny Vidacovich has become one of the best drummers in a city known for its drummers. Born and bred in New Orleans, Vidacovich has the city’s unique, syncopated backbeat running in his veins. 

Having played professionally for more than 50 years now, Johnny has shared stages with late greats like Johnny Adams, Professor Longhair, Mose Allison, and in addition to his well known funk projects, he is renowned as a founding member of early New Orleans modern jazz quartet, Astral Project. 
It is in improvisation that his abilities show to greatest advantage. Always sensitive to the shifting sands of jazz, the drum maestro may mix it up with reggae, bebop, street beat, and blues rhythms in the course of one tune, as he follows the lead of one of his collaborators.
TONIGHT, Johnny V presents music from his brand new album for this Official Record Release Show for “Out Da Box,” his first album as a leader in a hot minute. 
The Johnny Vidacovich “Out Da Box” Quintet features
Johnny Vidacovich – drums, vocals
